Residents: 'There has to be a limit to growth'

Residents are unhappy at plans to build thousands of homes in and around Yeovil. Residents opposed to the plans filled a council meeting today to try and get the proposals scrapped.

David Cloke, who lives in East Coker, say there is little support for the plans that could see homes built in the historic village.

Discussions by South Somerset District Council could go into tomorrow before a decision is reached.

Protesters fight housing plans

Up to 150 protesters are at South Somerset District Council's full council meeting in Yeovil fighting plans to allocate hundreds of acres for 2,500 homes on the edge of the town. The housing plans also include parts of the village of East Coker, immortalised by poet T.S Eliot.

His ashes are interred in the village church. The protesters say the scale of development is unnecessary and will ruin a beautiful landscape.
