Gloucester City Council is inviting members of the public to have their say on what areas in the city have potential for development and what criteria they’d need to meet.

The Gloucester City Plan delivers the Joint Core Strategy at a local level and sets out draft policies that reflect local issues and opportunities in the city. It looks at areas in the city that would be appropriate for development and growth to ensure that the council meets its development targets.

The city plan outlines a possible 23 sites across Gloucester that would be suitable for development and a further 70 policies that protect the environment and make sure that new developments contribute positively to the city’s needs.

The council is asking its partners, businesses and local residents what they think of the possible sites and policies in the plan and if there are any others that could be considered.

Subject to council approval next month, a six week long public conversation on the city plan will launch on 16th January 2017.

Cllr Colin Organ, cabinet member for housing and planning, said: “It’s really important that we hear from as many people as possible on this consultation. We will also be travelling around the city asking local communities to come and speak with us.

“Development is essential to the growth of the city, but it should also serve the needs of the community. Gloucester is a growing city and becoming an even more desirable city to live in, visit and work. We’re hopeful that the plans outlined in this document will support this growth.”
