PLANNING APPEAL - APP/DO121/W/16/ 3151600 Land off Wrington Lane. GLADMAN DEVELOPMENTS LIMITED 

The result of the planning inquiry was that the appeal by Gladman Development Limited was dismissed. The inquiry took place in late March and the beginning of April and heard representations from local residents, CRAG and the Parish Council. The conclusion of the Inspector Anne Jordan was that; 

'When assessed without any assurances that affordable housing can be delivered on site, the harm arising from this scheme would significantly and demonstrably outweigh the identified benefits. The proposal must therefore be considered to fail to comply with the presumption in favour of sustainable development and the appeal is dismissed.' The full decision notice can be found here.

Following the submission of the appeal the appellant submitted a subsequent identical application, which was the subject of ongoing negotiation in relation to the means of access and the form of highways improvements along Wrington Lane. This was passed by North Somerset Council Ref 16/P/1521/O.

However, the appeal being dismissed is an excellent result for the village and can be attributed to the hard work of local residents, CRAG and especially Peter Walton.  The Parish Council wishes to thank him for all of his hard work and dedication and all the other residents who contributed to this successful outcome.
