Reminder - have your say on the future shape of our area

Time is running out to have your say on future housing and transport infrastructure for our area.

You have until 29th January to comment on the Joint Spatial Plan and Joint Transport Plan for the West of England (Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire).

The JSP will eventually say where the 85,000 homes currently predicted to be needed in the region between now and 2036 should go. That’s an extra 29,000 homes over those already planned by the four councils.

At this stage they are asking how the homes should be provided - Urban Intensification, Urban Extension, Town Expansion (for example Yate), New Settlement, Other Settlement Locations (Winterbourne, Frampton Cotterell and Coalpit Heath are named as examples) or Dispersed (adding a small amount to all our villages). Planners will use the answers to help draw up the Draft Joint Spatial Plan for consultation next summer.
