Protest at housing debate
COUNCIL bosses had a lengthy debate as they tried to agree on a solution for Cheltenham's housing crisis.
Cheltenham borough councillors started discussing where to put thousands of homes as part of the authority's joint core strategy partnership at 2.30pm yesterday – and were still going at 6pm.
The discussions followed a protest by Save The Countryside campaigners.
Councillors were tasked with agreeing on population estimates for the town, set at 44,700 over the next 20 years.
