THE next round of consultation on plans for thousands more homes in South Gloucestershire will run this autumn, with drop-in events organised for areas including Yate and Chipping Sodbury.

Last year there was consultation on the Joint Spatial Plan for the West of England, which proposed another 2,600 houses around Yate and Chipping Sodbury.

Another 1,500 are proposed for Coalpit Heath, as well as some 2,200 in a new garden village at Buckover, near Thornbury, 600 in Thornbury itself and a further 1,000 in Charfield.

The drop-in session for Yate and Sodbury will run from 2pm-8pm in Chipping Sodbury Town Hall on Wednesday, October 4. There will also be one in Coalpit Heath Village Hall on Friday, September 22, during the same times.

The Joint Spatial Plan will set out the overall amount of residential and employment development and where it should be located in the West of England, as well as the infrastructure to support it.
