Chronicle focuses on Bath's great housing debate

This week's Bath Chronicle is running a spread giving all sides of the planning debate in our city.

The Bath Chronicle's planning coverage
The paper reports that more than 900 people responded to the public consultation at the end of 2013 asking for views on where new housing and other development should take place in the Bath area.

Not surprisingly, plans to change the boundary of the city's green belt at South Stoke and Weston, so hundreds of homes can be built on fields surrounding the city, proved to be a divisive topic.

The article contains arguments from a planner, developer, politician, first-time buyer and a green belt campaigner from the South of Bath Alliance.

Bath and North East Somerset's planning blueprint, the Core Strategy, is due to be examined in public by independent planning inspector Simon Emerson at the end of March.

Here's a link to the article:
