The Planning Background
The emerging Cotswold District local plan is the document that sets out the strategy for future growth within the district up to 2031. The plan has been the subject of extensive rounds of public consultation from May 2013 through to and including this year. The plan allocates the land off Evenlode Road for housing to meet some of the identified need. The plan has been reviewed by a Government Inspector and his Final Report was published on 5 June 2018.
The Inspector has concluded that the plan is sound, and the land at Evenlode Road is suitable to accommodate a housing development.
The land has been declared surplus to the requirements of Gloucestershire County Council. The County Council is therefore seeking outline planning permission for development of the site for housing in accordance with Cotswold District Council’s soon to be adopted local plan.
We are therefore proposing to submit a planning application to comply with the District Council’s policy and would like your comments once the consultation begins on 5 July.
