Wiltshire

Updated Wiltshire Core Strategy to be discussed

Plans for tens of thousands of new homes in Wiltshire are to be discussed at a council meeting later.

Decision makers will examine the county's core strategy - a document which controls how the county will develop over the next 20 years.

The initial version was released last summer and included plans for 37,000 new homes and 27,000 jobs by 2026.

Since then there has been a public consultation and the plan has been amended to take account of concerns.

The amended version goes before councillors for approval at a meeting in Trowbridge at 14:00 GMT on Tuesday.

If accepted the document should get the final seal of approval by the autumn.
