A consultation on where more houses could built in North Somerset is underway.

North Somerset Council had earmarked land for 20,985 to be built in the district up to 2026.

But the authority was forced to make changes to the plan when a housing inspector said some of those sites could not be delivered quickly enough.

As a result, the council has now added 22 further areas to its sites allocation plan.

These sites are expected to take 821 additional houses, and includes ambitions for 80 homes at Broadleaze Farm in Wrington, 41 south of Bristol Road in Churchill, and 51 at Wilson Gardens in West Wick, none of which have been ruled on by councillors.

The consultation can be found on www.consult-ldf.n-somerset.gov.uk/consult.ti until 11.59pm on October 30.

The responses will be given to the inspector, who will then issue a final report before the plan is adopted by the council.
