THE Planning Inspectorate in Bristol has postponed until further notice a public inquiry into plans to build 150 new homes on greenfield land in Corsham.

It says the planning inspector is currently too unwell to preside over the inquiry into Gladman Developments proposals for land north of the A4 Bath Road.

Locals and the Pickwick Association have strongly opposed the company's plans to build above the Hartham Stone Mine.

The company is appealing against Wiltshire Council’s refusal to allow a variation of condition 22 of the Foundation Investigation Plan to enable it to start work before the condition is discharged.
