Plans for the redevelopment of the Foxhill Estate – including the re-provision of up to 700 homes – have been approved by Bath & North East Somerset Council’s Development Management Committee.

The Committee voted in favour of the outline planning application by a vote of 5 to 4.

As this is an outline planning application, there will be further stages to provide more detail to each phase of the development.

“We have carefully considered all of the information in the officer report, and having conducted a site visit and listened closely to the representations at today’s meeting, the Committee voted to approve the Curo Places redevelopment of the Foxhill Estate, subject to the conditions and legal agreement stated in the officer report.”

– Cllr Sally Davis (Conservative, Farmborough) Chair of the Development Management Committee
