Help shape the future of the Cotswolds

Share this article

Residents can help shape the future of the Cotswolds by giving their views on the first major stage of the production of an overall development strategy for the District.

Public consultation on the Cotswold District Core Strategy to 2026 started recently with the publication of an Issues and Options paper.

Cotswold District Council is inviting members of the public to comment on the paper up to Friday, December 21st.

This is the first major stage in the production of the Local Development Framework, which will in due course replace the Cotswold District Local Plan.

The Issues and Options consultation paper sets out initial ideas on what issues the Core Strategy should consider, and the Council is encouraging the public to get involved and share their views.

Portfolio Holder for Corporate Planning Cllr Carole Topple said: “The aim of the Core Strategy will be to deliver a long-term spatial vision for the area, including an overall development strategy for the District to 2026, and policies for steering and shaping that strategy.”

Members of the public who have access to the Internet can log onto the Council’s consultation portal at consult.cotswold.gov.uk/portal to view the Issues and Options paper and comment online.

Alternatively, they may follow the link from the Forward Planning web pages on the Council’s website (www.cotswold.gov.uk).

Anyone who would like a printed copy of the Issues and Options paper should contact the Forward Planning Team at Cotswold District Council on 01285 623547.

Forward Planning Manager Chris Vickery said: “The District Council welcomes feedback from anyone who is interested in shaping the future of the District, ideally making use of the new electronic consultation facility, which should make it more convenient to submit comments.”
