Where do you think new homes should go?
PEOPLE in Hanham and Longwell Green have a month left to have their say on future development in the area and across South Gloucestershire.
The council is consulting on its Local Plan, which will determine the best places to build at least 1,300 extra homes that are needed.
It will also identify where businesses, transport, schools and other services and facilities should go.
Residents have already said they want the focus of new development to be on brownfield sites and within existing towns first, so long as they also bring the infrastructure - cycling and walking routes, better public transport and more schools - to support them.
But the council says this will not provide enough homes, so it needs to look at other sites. The Kleeneze site in Hanham is suggested as a prime location for building.
The plan recognises the strong desire of local people to protect the green belt.
