Bath area's future housing needs examined
Plans for 12,700 new homes in the Bath area by 2029 are to be scrutinised by a government inspector.
It is part of Bath and North East Somerset Council's Core Strategy - which details the council's vision for housing, transport and employment.
Developers are expected to tell the inspector the housing figures are not enough and call for more green belt land to be released.
The one-day inquiry takes place at the Guildhall in Bath.
The Core Strategy was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate in May 2011 but a number of changes have been made by the council since.
