The fate of an application which could see 59 houses built in a North Somerset village will now be decided by the Government’s planning inspectorate – after North Somerset Council took too long to make up its mind.

Developer Redcliffe Homes wanted to build the houses close to Cox’s Green, in Wrington, in June 2016.

It reduced the scale of the application from 83 homes to 59 after opposition from villagers and North Somerset MP Liam Fox last year.

However, a council spokesman confirmed this week the developer has lodged an appeal after planners took too long to decide on the application. The council’s planning committee will also discuss the proposal at its March meeting, although it can no longer vote on its fate.
