COUNCIL chiefs are set to discuss controversial plans which could see houses built on Bromsgrove's green belt land.

The Advertiser reported last week that the town's green belt land could be up for grabs as the council struggles to meet a pressing need for housing.

Feedback and responses to a consultation carried out in 2018 have been published as well as information on the possible strategic direction the plan could take.

Also, the first element of the green belt review (something only reviewed in exceptional circumstances) has been carried out.

At this stage the documents do not contain information on where new developments may be, but they will help in making decisions in the future alongside a wide range of other evidence.

The documents will also consider inviting landowners and developers to offer land for development as the council looks to accommodate the housing and employment need as identified by the Planning Inspector.

This could include looking to the green belt for possible solutions.

A cabinet meeting will be held tonight (September 4) at Parkside and recommendations for moving the plan forward will be on the agenda of the full council on September 25.
