A DECISION over plans for 1,600 homes at Staplegrove has been deferred.

Members of Taunton Deane Borough Council's Planning Committee last night, Thursday, resolved to defer making a decision over the two controversial schemes 'for further information and discussion'.

"Members of the Planning Committee resolved to defer both Staplegrove planning applications for further information and discussion," a tweet from the council said.

Ptarmigan Staplegrove Ltd applied for 713 homes with employment land, green infrastructure, landscaping and play areas between Whitmore Lane and Silk Mills.

Meanwhile, PM Asset Management Ltd is planning 915 homes north of Corkscrew Lane, with a primary school, employment land, open space and sports pitches.
