BRIDPORT Town Councillors have repeated their objections to 14 new homes on North Mills Road.

The plan first came up for discussion in 2011. They were given approval by West Dorset District Council but the town council has now been asked to comment on reserved matters connected with the application.

At their meeting on Monday they said their objections were still relevant.

Councillors felt the development would have an impact on the traffic conditions in the area as there were now new residential building opposite the site.

They said there was an issue with through traffic along North Mills, which would be exacerbated by this development and they were concerned about access on to Victoria Grove.

Councillors originally objected to the plans on highways grounds, overdevelopment of the site and potential flooding issues.

The recent weather and the comments of local residents, shown in the responses to the consultation on this application, had also reinforced the concerns relating to flooding in respect of this application, they said.
