Applicant back in for controversial Anston church plans
Anston Parish Hall

PEOPLE living in Anston can find out more about controversial plans to build a church on green belt land at a consultation meeting tomorrow (Thursday).

Developer Elsworth Acres hopes to build a Plymouth Brethren Christian Church, as well as new facilities for Anston Rangers Junior Football Club, on land just off Common Road in North Anston.

The proposals come after similar applications were rejected in 2013 and 2015 — but the firm said the latest plans “seek to address issues identified in the previous applications”.

Scheme drawings and more information will be on show at Anston Parish Hall, Ryton Road, from 4pm until 7pm.
