A Public Inquiry will be held after Barratt Homes appealed against refusal of planning permission to build up to 100 houses in Nunney.
Barratt Homes have written to the Department for Communities and Local Government to appeal against Mendip District Council‘s decision to refuse outline planning permission to build up to 100 houses at Green Pits Lane in Nunney.
