Tewkesbury Borough Council unveils its Planning Blueprint for 2011 -2031
Tewkesbury Borough Council has published its draft development plan which sets out where hundreds of homes could be built in the villages surrounding the town.
The Tewkesbury Borough Plan puts the meat on the bones of the development blueprint called the Joint Core Strategy which sets out where more than 30,000 homes will be built across Tewkesbury, Gloucester and Cheltenham. Bishop’s Cleeve, Winchcombe, Alderton, Highnam and Shurdington have all been earmarked to take new housing, which will be built between 2011 and 2031.
As well as setting out the options for small-scale development sites, the draft document includes the borough’s draft local planning policies, which cover issues such as how the council will approach rural employment sites, transport and accessibility, conservation areas and the surrounding landscape.
Tewkesbury Borough Council will discuss the draft document on February 10 and if it is agreed it will go out for public consultation.
