Past Plans

Local Development Framework (2005)

Previously, the City Council has consulted on four different planning documents, which were collectively known as the Local Development Framework. These documents all reached the ‘preferred options’ stage and will no longer be progressed. Further information on each of the documents is available by clicking on the relevant link below.

Local Plan 1996

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. The full documents can be downloaded by selecting the relevant link below.
