Ridge residents concerned over planning appeal

RESIDENTS of The Ridge are dismayed that permission for four semi-detached houses may be granted on their road, despite previously being refused.

The original planning application was refused in October last year, due to concerns over increased traffic and potential damage to the natural environment. The appeal was then dismissed over road safety concerns.

The revised application proposes new road markings, and is to be discussed at the planning committee meeting this afternoon (Wednesday, September 14) at 6pm, at the town hall.
