How does city grow?
Senior politicians were last night considering how they will encourage more jobs and build more homes in Bath.
Members of Bath and North East Somerset Council's cabinet met to discuss an agenda for growth for the district.
In the first half of this year 466 companies were launched in the city, and the council says it wants to bring forward regeneration schemes that will help communities and businesses in the future.
Regeneration sites earmarked for development are the rest of Bath Western Riverside, Bath Quays South around Avon Street, Manvers Street, Green Park Station, the Bath Press site and Bath Quays North – around the Newark Works.

The council said it also hoped to encourage the building of thousands of homes on brownfield sites to help fill the district's housing gap.
Council leader Paul Crossley (Lib Dem, Southdown) said: "The scope of this agenda shows how central skills are to our long-term competitiveness; as a result of legislative changes to the retirement age, we will have an ageing workforce with fewer job opportunities for our young people, it is essential that we create an environment for businesses to flourish, that in turn generates jobs, and a resident workforce to fill those jobs."
