CRAG & Barratt’s Develpoment – Make your point known

Posted by

Parish MeetingCRAG people delivering leaflets advertising next Wednesday’s open village meeting have been asked: “How can we let the inspector know what we think about the Barratts scheme?”

The short answer is, turn up to the public inquiry on 6 October. But it isn’t quite that simple. Currently scheduled to take place at Weston town hall – a venue very unfair to residents of Congresbury – there is still a possibility the inquiry could be heard at the Old School Rooms in the village.

People who want to make their views known in person, should have a printed list of bullet points they wish to say, which can be handed to the inspector after they finish speaking.

But how and when the inspector will call residents to give evidence, is not known. Sometimes witnesses who are not representing an organisation, are heard at the start of proceedings. Other inspectors give these witnesses the opportunity to speak as and when they are available.

CRAG will report on the village websites any useful information as and when it become available. So the best advice for the present is: watch this space.
