Public Meeting – Barratt’s Development

Posted by

Stop Barratt Homes 300x225CRAG (Congresbury Residents Action Group) has started a leaflet campaign to promote the village Open Meeting called for Wednesday 9 September.

Due to start at 7.30pm in the Memorial Hall, the meeting will hear North Somerset Council’s core strategy update from district councillor Tom Leimdorfer.

Congresbury parish council and CRAG are due to give details of their preparations for the public inquiry into Barratts plan for 80 houses. That is currently expected to take place at Weston town hall on Tuesday 6 October.

The meeting, chaired by CRAG’s Nick Green, will give residents an idea of how they can attend the public inquiry, and let the inspector hear their opinions of the scheme.

It is important for residents to air their views because if the Barratts scheme gets the green light from the inspector, it is likely that the plan to make radical changes to the A370/High Street junction will also go ahead.
