Garden community of 1,500 homes proposed for Keynsham

Council leaders are set to discuss ambitious plans to create a “garden community” of around 1,500 homes on land behind Waitrose in Keynsham.

The scheme has been on the table for a number of years as Bath and North East Somerset Council has looked at how to meet house-building targets – and soon residents will be asked for their views on this and a raft of options covering future developments across the area for the next 18 years.

The debate by cabinet members at B&NES is the next stage in updating the Local Plan for the district, which will set out where new homes and employment sites will be located up to 2036.
