SAY NO to council's crafty plan to build on the plateau

The Planning Inspector has accepted Bath and North East Somerset Council's Core Strategy proposal – despite developers asking for it to be rewritten to include Bristol’s housing needs.

Threatened South Stoke plateau
He will now hold a public meeting in Bath (date tbc) to hear objections from people who responded to the May 2013 consultation.

In the meantime, the council has decided to select a specific location on South Stoke Plateau for housing. In so doing they have circumvented the Core Strategy consultation process.

The next stage of the council's plan is to launch another consultation with communities around the plateau (in November), asking whether we agree with their choice of location for house-building on the Plateau.

Please look out for any consultation letters/emails in November and reply ‘NO’ to any South Stoke Plateau house-building location.

plateauAny building on the plateau will represent the thin end of the wedge. Tomorrow, the rest of the plateau, then more green belt around Bath.
