Bid to block Tesco Extra in Bridgwater using 'town green' status
A PUBLIC inquiry is to be held this month over a bid to have Bridgwater’s Brewery Field, which Tesco wants to develop part of, designated a “town green”.
If the application, which has been made by two residents of Admiral’s Court, is successful, it could keep Brewery Field free from future development.
Seeking town green status has stopped development in other areas.
For example, people opposed to Bristol City Football Club’s plans to build a new stadium at Ashton Vale have blocked the project by seeking town green status for the land.
The inquiry will be overseen by Planning Inspector, Paul Wilmshurst QC, at Bridgwater Pantomime Hall, in Wembdon Road, on February 19, at 10am.
People wishing to give evidence should attend on the day.
