Around 300 people packed into this evening's meeting at Brimsham Green School to hear Steve Webb MP and Cllr Chris Willmore explain the impact of the proposed 5000 new houses for the Yate and Chipping Sodbury area. It is intended to set up an action group to fight the plans.
We need to plan now - when the minister makes a decision we'll only have a few weeks to make our comments. Under the new planning arrangements local people have so far had no say - but the housing developers were all allowed to put their views forward!
Send us your details via the Focus contact form if you would like to help us fight this over-development - or follow the same link to find out how to get in touch with your local councillor.
