Concerns over flooding, sewage and a lack of infrastructure were among the concerns raised by those objecting to the planning application.

However the developer is now appealing against that decision in the hopes an independent planning inspector will overturn the refusal and grant permission.

A planning inquiry will be held at a later date where the arguments will be heard.

Anyone wishing to comment on the proposals should send their views to The Planning Inspectorate FAO - Robert Wordsworth, 3J Kite Wing, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Bristol, BS1 6PN or email [email protected] quoting the appeal reference, APP/L3815/W/21/3286315 by December 20.
