Wembdon housing estate inquiry begins in Somerset
A public inquiry has started into plans to build 450 homes on the edge of a village in Somerset.
The plans for Wembdon were refused by Sedgemoor District Council last year on grounds they were not part of its five-year plan for housing growth.
Councillor Anne Bown said it was important people attended so the inspector could "see the feelings of people in Wembdon".
Cavanna Homes has refused to comment about the public inquiry or its plans.
The public inquiry is taking place at Victoria Park Community Centre and is expected to last up to four days.
