Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and Gloucester Councils have recently published the first draft of their Joint Core Strategy. This document will provide the framework for the strategic direction and amount of growth across all three Borough and City boundaries. The plan will also form part of each Council’s Local Development Framework, which will replace the current Local Plans.
More information can be found here. SF Planning is currently advising clients on a case by case basis in relation to whether a response should be made for specific sites across all three Local Authority areas.
The consultation period is now running, and will expire on 19 February 2010.
