REMARKABLE RESULT AT PLANNING MEETING

On Wednesday afternoon, 11th January, North Somerset Planning and Regulatory committee met to consider the Gladman application for 50 houses on a field off Wrington Lane. The application has been roundly condemned by hundreds of residents, Congresbury Parish Council and Congresbury Residents Action Group.
