Core Strategy - S Glos housing numbers just don't add up

Local Focus councillors at Yate Rocks -
if the Core Strategy goes through, almost all the fields
behind them would disappear under a sea of houses

The Core Strategy - South Glos's new master document - was constructed under the last government's massive housing proposals. They're proposing 3000 extra houses for North Yate alone.

But now the new government has now announced that local planning authorities can decide their own housing requirements. Where are all the 3000 families clamouring for a house in Yate? It's time for S Glos to go back to Square One and reassess the real need.

You can have your say about the Core Strategy - either online (see our previous item) or by visiting one of the VERY temporary exhibitions:
  • This Thursday (10 June) at Yate Shopping Centre, outside Boswells 11.00 am - 3.30 pm
  • Tuesday 29 June in the Old Grammar School, Chipping Sodbury 3.00 pm - 7.30 pm
Maybe they don't realise that people in Yate actually work!
Please go along, find out more, and tell them that they've got to think it out again!
