ARRETON Parish Council will consider what stance to take on a large housing development proposal for the village at its planning committee meeting on Tuesday.

The committee, which can only make representations to the Isle of Wight Council, which has the power to decide the application, meets at Arreton Community Centre at 7.30pm.

Arreton Villagers Against Development has pledged to fight the plan for 89 homes at Hazely Combe in the village. It plans to put up banners and has set up a Facebook page.

The group will be represented at the meeting but parish council chairman Cllr Lin Watterson emphasised local people and those who may move to the new development would be given priority to speak — if they gave prior notice.

Objector Alison Hayden, who lives near the site, said: "This is a major development, which would seriously affect the village if it gets approval.

"Because of its importance we would hope and expect it would be considered by the Isle of Wight Council’s planning committee and not be subject to a delegated decision."
