Thousands of homes are to be built on Green Belt land around Bath.
Bath and North East Somerset Council has approved plans for 12,700 homes to be built on greenfield and brownfield sites by 2029.
The original proposals were for 11,500 homes, but a government planning inspector decided this figure did not meet the area's future needs.
Extra homes could now be built in the following areas:
- Odd Down, Bath: 300 homes
- Weston, Bath: 300 homes
- Extension to MoD Ensleigh: 120 homes
- East Keynsham: 250 homes
- South West Keynsham: 200 homes
- Whitchurch: 200 homes
A public consultation will be held for a six week period later this month.
