Current Planning Policy
The adopted Local Plan is the Gloucester Local Plan from 1983; with effect from September 2007 a number of policies have been saved. The full document as well the schedule of saved policies can be downloaded by selecting the relevant link below.
In addition, two Local Plan documents were produced in 1996 to reflect the changes to Gloucester's administrative boundary, made in 1991, which brought Quedgeley (previously in Stroud District) into Gloucester's administration. Although these plans have been considered through a formal public inquiry process and reported on by the Planning Inspectorate, they have not been formally adopted. They are however relevant considerations in the determination of planning applications. The full documents can be downloaded by selecting the relevant link below.
In 2000, the Council began consulting on a new Local Plan for Gloucester. This Local Plan reached the Second Stage Deposit Draft in 2002, and following this, was adopted by the Council for development control purposes. The full documents can be downloaded by selecting the relevant links below.
The City Council is now working on a new Plan for Gloucester (link to 'Emerging Planning Policy' page).
