Members of the public are invited to attend the eight-day planning inquiry at Bideford Town Hall.

A planning inquiry into Torridge’s refusal of a marina village in Northam is due to begin on Tuesday, May 18.

The Knapp House inquiry will be heard by the Planning Inspectorate at Bideford Town Hall at 10am, and is expected to last for eight days.

Plans for the 250-berth marina village were first submitted to the council in January 2012.

Residents expressed huge concerns over the plans, which went on to be refused by Torridge in February 2012.

But applicants Len Tanner and Paul Hevingham re-submitted the plans in October 2013 which refused again in March 2013.

Anyone is welcome to attend the public inquiry.
