Bath's £400m riverside development show home open

Building work continues at Bath's Riverside development Construction of the 44-acre site began in April

The first show home at Bath's biggest ever housing development has opened.

The £400m Western Riverside project will see 2,000 homes - both private and social housing - built on a site which has been derelict for more than 25 years.

Campaigners have criticised the design of the 44-acre site, claiming it could threaten Bath's World Heritage status.

The developers said opening up the site would demonstrate the quality of the housing.

Construction began in April and the first residents should be able to move in before Christmas.
