A GROUP of neighbours have lodged complaints against their council after plans to build 100 homes on the edge of their village.
Waveney District Council granted permission for 100 homes to be built off Ullswater in Carlton Colville, near Lowestoft, in September last year.
Villagers living near the site who objected to the plans when they were first submitted have now lodged formal complaints with the council about how the planning decisions were made.
Nick Jack, who lives on Ullswater, said that several complaints had been submitted about the actions of the council's planning department, including that the site visit was carried out from Swallowfields, not Ullswater, that requirements listed by Suffolk Wildlife Trust had not been added as planning conditions and that the applicant was allowed to address the council's development control committee on several issues after his allotted three minutes of time to talk.
