Plans to build almost 13,000 new homes around Bath will be discussed by Bath & North East Somerset Council next week.
The Council has looked again at the numbers of homes needed over the next fifteen years, in response to concerns expressed by the draft Core Strategy Examination Inspector.
A range of options have been considered about where the extra homes should go.
Up to this point, the Core Strategy has prioritised development on Brownfield sites and some greenfield sites not in the Green Belt.
To find the room for the extra homes, the Council was required to conduct a Green Belt review.
As a result, some of the home location proposals – aimed at supporting economic prosperity, providing choice to local people and preventing unplanned development – are based in the Green Belt.
