South Gloucestershire Local Plan 2020
We are developing a new Local Plan for South Gloucestershire. The Local Plan 2020 will include a new strategy and policies to guide and manage growth and change in our area over the next 15 years.
This is an important opportunity to:
- shape the places that we live, work and socialise in
- have a direct impact on quality of life, the natural and built environment
- have positive impacts on climate change, inequalities and encourage a green economy
- discuss choices and make decisions about where significant levels of growth for new homes and jobs might be located, and which areas should be protected
Phase 1 – Issues and Approaches
Consultation open – have your say
The phase 1 consultation will run from 27 November 2020 to 1 March 2021.
