The controversial plans for a major housing development in Weymouth have been deferred by councillors today (Wednesday 1st May).

Builders want to put-up 600 new homes on an popular area of green land but the planning committee have agreed to visit the site before making a decision.

The borough council have rescheduled a meeting following their visit to Weymouth to the 29th May.

Last year developers unveiled their multi-million pound plan for Curtis Fields.

The area was earmarked as a potential site to meet housing needs in the Borough Council's Draft Plan.

But there's been stiff opposition from local residents who've been fighting to get the land protected to keep developers away.

Developers Betterment say half of the site would be for public recreation and nature conservation.

The Council is expected to dismiss the planning application, saying it'll lead to an unbalanced housing supply in the Borough.
