YOUR TOWN, YOUR COUNTRYSIDE, YOU CHOOSE

A draft JOINT CORE STRATEGY (JCS) is to be prepared by Gloucester City, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Councils. It will decide our area’s planning future up until 2026. The draft has, by law, to be based on the draft South West Regional Spatial Strategy (SWRSS) even though all three Councils object to many of its policies, particularly unjustified urban extensions and incursions into the Green Belt.

An initial Public Participation Document has been produced that identifies the key issues that need to be resolved before the strategy can be produced. The consulation started on Monday 23rd November for 10 weeks. There will also be manned roadshows on this schedule:

Friday 27 November – Cheltenham Promenade – 10am to 6pm
Saturday 28 November – Cheltenham Promenade – 10am to 6pm
Monday 30 November – Quedgeley Parish Office, Gloucester – 3pm to 6pm
Tuesday 1 December – Bishops Cleeve Parish Council Office – 3pm to 8pm
Wednesday 2 December -Brockworth Community Centre – 3 pm to 8 pm
Thursday 3 December -Uckington /Swindon Village, Civil Service Sports Centre, Tewkesbury Road – 3pm to 7pm
Friday /Saturday 4 and 5 December – Unit 33 Kings Walk, Gloucester City Centre – 9am to 6pm

WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IF WE WORK TOGETHER

If we can choose and agree the best options for our area and if we can encourage a massive unified community response, the Councils will have a public mandate to resist Central Government dictat.

WE NEED EVERYONE TO RESPOND
