Angry villagers from Cobthorn Way, Wrington Lane and Verlands besieged Congresbury Parish Council meeting on Monday to raise their strong objections to the tactics adopted by Strongvox, who have taken over the development at the bottom of Cobthorn Way from Sunley Homes, the original developer.
Strongvox have applied to the planning authority to replace the original mix of 38 properties with 21 four-bedroomed houses, instead of a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroomed units, and the original four bungalows reduced to one. The 11 affordable units cannot be changed.
More than 25 supporters of Congresbury Residents Action Group (CRAG) turned up for the official hearing into the Strongvox scheme to build 24 houses on land off Brinsea Road. The hearing at the Royal Hotel, Weston, also drew members of the village Parish Council and district councillor Tom Leimdorfer.Read More
Congresbury Residents’ Action Group (CRAG) is keeping a close watch on archaeology work on the field off Brinsea Road behind Nomis Park.
Developer Strongvox is considering a plan for 24 houses on the site, but because of the proximity to earlier finds of Roman kilns, North Somerset Council is carrying out an archeological survey.
