A council which wants to spend £33m on development including new offices, retail space and a library near Bath is inviting local people to see its plans.
Conservative-run Bath and North East Somerset Council is holding a presentation of initial concept pictures of the redevelopment.

It also approved plans to spend £200m over five years in projects, including £33m in Keynsham town centre.
The presentation is being held on 22 February at the Key Centre in Keynsham.
A council spokesman asked that people who want to attend give the authority notice in advance.
