Flyers advertising Congresbury Residents’ Action Group’s drop-in sessions at the Old School Rooms have now been delivered to most homes in the village.

The flyer, headed “The New Town Next Door” informs residents that the drop-in sessions are due to take place next weekend on Friday 16th from 3.30pm to 6pm and Saturday 17th from 10am-1pm.

At the sessions, members of the CRAG team will outline the likely impact of North Somerset Council’s plan for 2,800 houses at Mendip Spring. The council’s plan is outlined in its Local Plan Issues and Options document which is out for consultation until 10 December.

CRAG believes that residents need to understand the consequences of having a small town on their doorstep, with extra traffic and further strain on local services.
