Housing crisis must be solved by working together, councillors told
COUNCILLORS have been warned that there is 'no Plan B' to working with neighbouring councils in solving the area's housing crisis.
Members of Cheltenham Borough Council (CBC) voted in favour of going back on controversial decisions they made just a month ago.
Gloucester and Tewkesbury Councils had suggested the future of the Joint Core Strategy (JCS) document, which will state where and how many houses should be built, was in doubt after Cheltenham passed recommendations in September that had not been agreed with the two partner authorities.
But CBC chief executive Andrew North told a members' meeting at the Municipal Offices tody: "I think the truth of the matter is that there isn't a Plan B as such."
