During a hearing at Yate Magistrates Court, Redrow Homes were fined £3,750 after being convicted of five charges of failing to comply with a Breach of Condition Notice. Two other charges were dropped before the hearing. The notice controls the hours they are permitted to work on a large housing development at the former Hewlett Packard site near the University West of England.

The offences committed included working on Sundays and Saturday afternoons, which had caused disruption to local residents who complained to the council. The company were also ordered to pay costs of £847.34 and a victim surcharge of £75.

The prosecution took place on Monday 2 September. On the same day, we also prosecuted a couple from Kingswood who were developing a property at 206 New Cheltenham Road, Kingswood. Alan Bracey and Leslieann Bridge pleaded guilty to failing to comply with conditions which required them to provide details of a landscaping and surface water drainage scheme before any development took place. The case was also heard in Yate.
