Gladman update

Land agent Gladman, whose latest proposal for Congresbury was comprehensively rejected by the planning authority, is now seeking a legal loophole to try and get their scheme accepted. The firm first submitted to North Somerset Council a plan for 50 houses in Wrington Lane, around four years ago. Despite a vigorous campaign by local residents, the council agreed the proposal on the condition that a footway was provided before building commenced. Residents of the lane were confident that the carriageway was so narrow in parts, that there was no way such a scheme could succeed. And so it was. Having failed with their plans, the firm has now written to North Somerset claiming that the footpath condition was imposed after planning consent. They argue that the company – Bovis – can go ahead building the houses, without having to construct a footpath. CRAG says there should be a limit to the number of appeals such firms can make.

If you are considering a security installation with the requirement of a police response, the Alarms Team can offer guidance and advice on how this can be achieved. Read more & read leaflet

Avon and Somerset Alert for courier fraudsters

Typically, the caller then tells the victim to withdraw a sum of money and a courier is sent to collect it.

The ultimate aim of this call is to trick them into handing over money or their bank details. Read full article
