Plans which could see thousands of homes built in North Somerset have been submitted to the Government for review.
The draft of the West of England Joint Spatial Plan (JSP) was sent to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, Sajid Javid, on Friday.
The submission marks three years of teamwork and public engagement between North Somerset and its neighbouring authorities to guide planning for housing and business growth over the next 20 years.
If approved, the JSP would see 105,500 homes built across the region, 25,000 of which will be in North Somerset.
The next stage will be for the Government to review the plans and to appoint an independent planning inspector.
The inspector will examine the JSP before feeding back to the authorities with amendments. The councils will then decide whether to formally adopt it.
