Time is running out to have your say on plans for thousands of new homes in our area - all comments have to be made by the end of 10th January - that's next Wednesday.
How to have your say
You can comment online - you can step through the Joint Spatial Plan section by section and there is a button at the bottom of each section that allows you to add a comment. You'll need to register with the site, if you haven't already done so for a previous consultation, and log in. Do make sure you submit each comment before moving on to the next section.
Policy 2 sets out the Spatial Strategy - this lists the locations where large numbers of houses are proposed and explains why. The five locations in South Gloucestershire are covered by policies 7.8 to 7.12. Don't be misled by the latter being labelled Yate, the land is actually in Iron Acton and Westerleigh Parishes.
If you're short of time, focus on the policy for the area of most interest to you, you don't have to respond to every policy.
Before making your comments, it is well worth reading this page on how to comment and this guide to commenting.
Remember, this is your last chance to have your say so don't leave it to others. Once the plan has been adopted it will be too late to change where the new development goes.
