A town near Bristol is to get a new library, new streets, shops and council offices as part of a £34m regeneration.

The work in Keynsham is set to begin in August and Wilmott Dixon Construction has been chosen to carry out the design, demolition and construction.

The firm is to spend the next six months drawing up designs with Bath and North East Somerset Council.

The council said it would submit a planning application in the coming months.

An exhibition will later be held for members of the public to comment on the proposals.

Last week plans were announced for a £50m investment in the former Cadbury factory in Keynsham.

Taylor Wimpey wants to build 700 homes, business units and community facilities at the site.
