Draft Gloucester City Plan and 'call for sites'
Gloucester City Council is currently consulting on the Draft Gloucester City Plan for six weeks of public consultation between 16th January and 27thFebruary 2017. The document sets out:
- A draft vision and key principles for development in Gloucester;
- Draft planning policies that reflect and address the local issues and opportunities in the City that, once 'adopted' by the Council, will be used to inform planning proposals and assess planning applications; and
- Proposed site allocations for different types of development.
The consultation includes a targeted 'call for sites'. In this regard, the community, landowners and developers are invited to submit to the City Council potential development sites. These will be assessed for their development potential and could be included in the next version of the Gloucester City Plan.

Gloucester City Council wants your views before it makes decisions on it's budget for 2017/18. Over the past seven years, the Council has made significant savings of £9.5m and since 2014/15 alone has delivered £3.4m. This has been achieved through reductions in expenditure, service efficiencies and increased income generation.
The Council has met considerable challenge in funding but continues to strive to deliver quality service to both residents and the City. We value residents’ views and have set out some questions. Your answers will help us in deciding how to meet the financial challenge.
