Bath and North East Somerset Council still vague on homes
Exactly how many new homes will be built in the Bath area in the next 15 years is still unclear despite £100,000 being spent on further research.
An update report by Bath and North East Somerset Council does not reveal any crucial detail about where new houses might be built or how many should be built.
The report, published early this month, outlines the parts of the council's planning blue print, the core strategy, it is reviewing including land supply, the need for traveller pitches, planning policy for The Rec and whether there should be a requirement for 35 per cent affordable housing in all developments.
The core strategy was sent back to the drawing board last summer after a Government inspector advised it should be rewritten.

The inspector criticised the council's projection of 11,000 new homes by 2026 and said the authority might have to consider building on the green belt.
However, Councillor Tim Ball (Lib Dem, Twerton), cabinet member for housing and planning, said work was progressing and a full council report would be available by March.
He said: "It's currently going through the council's working parties to establish housing numbers and housing requirements."
