Drop-in events on housing proposals

The consultation starts next week on the proposals for up to 2,600 new homes around Yate and Chipping Sodbury, 1,500 at Coalpit Heath, 1,000 at Charfield, 600 at Thornbury and 2,200 at a new "garden village" at Buckover near Thornbury, along with a range of transport proposals. That's on top of the current plans,

South Gloucestershire Council will be holding drop-in events in the five areas most directly affected:

WHERE: Chipping Sodbury Town Hall
WHEN: Thursday 10 November, 1 – 7 pm

WHERE: Charfield Memorial Hall
WHEN: Tuesday 15 November, 1 – 7 pm

WHERE: Coalpit Heath Village Hall
WHEN: Monday 21 November, 1 – 7 pm

WHERE: Armstrong Hall, Thornbury
WHEN: Friday 25 November, 1 – 7 pm

WHERE: Falfield Village Hall
WHEN: Monday 28 November, 1 – 7 pm

Even if you live in a village that is not specifically mentioned in the proposals, it is well worth getting along to one of the events. For example, the housing proposals at Yate, Chipping Sodbury and Coalpit Heath would involve the release of Green Belt land, which could mean building out towards these villages like Westerleigh, Nibley, Wapley, Dodington and Codrington. Transport proposals such as a link road between the M4 and Yate could clearly have an impact on these communities too.
