Gloucester City Local Enforcement Plan
Public confidence in the planning is quickly undermined if unauthorised development is allowed to proceed, without any apparent attempt to intervene before serious harm to amenity results from it. Gloucester City Council takes its responsibilities for enforcement seriously, and will pursue formal action, whenever necessary, to protect residents' quality of life and the City's rich built heritage.
We have updated the Gloucester City Local Enforcement Plan which sets out how the City Council should deal with planning complaints in line with recent legislative updates and has incorporated recent customer feedback. We would like to here your views. The document will be out for consultation until the 18th of July 2013.
Please put your comments in writing to: email@example.com or Heidi Clarke, Enforcement Officer, Gloucester City Council, Herbert Warehouse, The Docks, Gloucester, GL1 2EQ.
There is no specific form, but if you are making detailed comments it would be helpful if you could quote the page number. Thank you for taking the time to read the policy and comment. We will address all comments in a report made to planning committee in July 2013.
Proposed Gating order for Organ’s Alley, Gloucester
The City Council can exercise powers of the Gloucestershire County Council to make Gating Orders under section 129A to 129G of the Highways Act 1980. The purpose of a Gating Order is to restrict public access by placing appropriate physical measures such as gates or bollards at each end of a highway to help deal with crime and anti-social behaviour where we are satisfied that this action is justified. Access may be restricted all day or for just part of the day. Gating Orders are only pursued after all other appropriate options have been considered to address crime or antisocial behaviour issues.
Following an initial consultation November to December 2012, Gloucester City Council is proposing to make a Gating Order which will restrict the public right of way at all times over all the highway known as Organs Alley. Organs Alley runs from its junction with Eastgate Street between 97 and 99 Eastgate Street in a northerly direction terminating at its junction with Russell Street between and 20 and 24 Russell Street.

A City for Young people
Do you have ideas on how Gloucester could be improved? We want to hear from young people and there are a number of ways to have your say.
Give us your views by completing this short survey.
Watch out for other ways to give your views, coming soon
Places to Play
Listening to the views of young people in the City means that we can provide areas to play and hang out, that are suitable to their needs. If you are 18 years old or under, we want to hear from you!
Take part in the online survey and tell us what you think about the places that you play and hang out!
Have you ever wanted to make your views heard, but simply don’t have the time to attend public meetings or events? This has been the feedback from many residents, therefore, we are about to set up a new E-Citizen’s panel, made up of local residents, like yourself, who may want to give us their views at a time and place that is convenient to them. Some of the questions you may be asked could include:
Do you think the Council should spend more or less money on keeping the City’s streets clean?
How could we further improve your local park?
What are your 3 priorities for the City’s regeneration?
By registering to get involved in the E-Citizen’s panel you will receive periodic emails from us, telling you about some of the issues that are coming up and you can chose whether or not you want to have your say,
If you are interested in registering, please complete our short online survey, telling us about the areas you are particularly interested in. The survey will only take 2-3 minutes to complete. We will then contact you shortly with more information.
