A DECISION on whether to allow 500 houses to be built on the border of Wraxall and Failand has been delayed due to the bad weather.

Members of North Somerset Council's central area planning committee were expected to discuss the plans on January 7.

However, the meeting was cancelled due to the bad weather and has been rescheduled for Monday night.

Development company FLP has submitted outline plans for a development of up to 500 homes, 60 apartments for elderly care, a primary school, employment spaces, convenience store, doctors surgery, public open space and associated infrastructure works.

If allowed to go ahead, the development, which has been planned for green belt land to the east of Failand, would double the size of the village.

However, council planning officers have recommended the plans for refusal and 344 letters of objection have been sent to the authority.
