The deadline for making submissions to the latest housing consultation is Wednesday 16th December.
BaSRAG has now submitted its views. In summary, they are that:
• If additional housing is required, we support a hybrid solution of options A (intensify housing within urban extension sites) & C (additional growth points)
• These new growth points at Whitminster and Moreton Valence / Hardwicke are far more sustainable in terms of employment potential and infrastructure than the one proposed at Sharpness
• We do not support the approach of identifying a reserve site or sites in case allocated sites do not come forward. Instead the council should be reviewing the whole Local Plan in the light of the significant potential new sites and evidence that has belatedly emerged since the original proposals.

You are obviously free to ‘borrow’ as much or as little of our material as you wish.
If you are concerned about the huge development planned for Berkeley and Sharpness, please contribute to the consultation, either by completing the questionnaire or in writing. All the options for submissions are:
