It is important that Local Plans are based on robust and credible evidence. The evidence set out below is organised within different topics and relate to the emerging Gloucester City Plan. Some pieces of evidence are emerging and will be uploaded when complete, as will other evidence documents that emerge throughout the preparation of the plan.
Alongside this, there is a significant amount of evidence relevant to the wider Joint Core Strategy, the strategic planning partnership between Gloucester City Council, Cheltenham Borough Council and Tewkesbury Borough Council. For further information, please visit the
