As you may have read in Focus, the South West Regional Assembly is recommending 5000 new houses for Yate. This is equivalent to an extra two or three Chipping Sodburys. At the moment there is no suggestion that the new development should spread out along the Frome Valley, but it is none the less worrying and has been decided without proper local consultation.
Steve Webb and Yate councillors are forming an Action Group. They are holding a PUBLIC MEETING at 7.30pm on Friday 29 February at Brimsham Green School.
