Bath and North East Somerset Council are focussed on the importance of housing delivery to support economic growth and meet housing needs of current and future residents.
The Draft Core Strategy identifies that 11,500 homes need to be delivered in the period up to 2026 at a rate of circa 550 per annum. These new homes and communities will be delivered through brownfield site allocation.
Previously a significant proportion of housing has been delivered on smaller sites of less than 15 units. However, whilst these sites remain important, in the future a number of larger strategic sites will become available that will meet our housing targets. These larger sites represent a significant opportunity to deliver sustainable communities that meet the objectives to deliver sustainable communities that meet the objectives and key criteria set out within the Draft Core Strategy and help meet our housing targets.
