A new development of 1,200 homes on land at Harry Stoke was foreseen in South Gloucestershire Council’s Local Plan adopted in January 2006.
The Local Plan anticiapted that 900 homes would be completed by 2011. In practice, no homes at all were built by this date, owing to planning delays and legal wrangles.
The site remains in the Council’s (still to be approved) Core Strategy, which covers the period up 2026.
The Core Strategy also introduces another proposed new neighbourhood, named ‘East of Harry Stoke’, where a further 2,000 homes are planned to be built, the vast majority of which will be constructed from 2016/2017.
