OVER 700 local residents have signed a petition protesting against the proposed development of 650 new homes at Jurston Farm, Wellington.

There has been a change of venue for the public meeting tonight (June 26) - it will now take place at Jurston Barn, Jurston Lane (access off A38) at 7pm.

Residents will hear of activity so far to protest against the plans and it is hoped to form an action group to co-ordinate future activity.
