Cotswold residents are being asked to identify potential housing land in the District.
Cotswold District Council will be carrying out an assessment of possible sites during the first half of 2008, as required by Government planning policy.
The study will help the Council show that there is sufficient land to meet the community’s housing needs in the preparation of Cotswold District Core Strategy and associated planning documents.
These documents will eventually replace the current Local Plan and guide future development in the District to 2026.
Senior Planner Nicola Melville said: “The aim of the assessment is to identify as many sites as possible that have housing potential throughout the Cotswold District.
“Consequently, we are inviting any person or organisation to inform us of any sites that they would like to draw to our attention.”
Although the assessment will form an important evidence source, the Council stressed that it does not determine whether a site should be allocated for housing development.
If anyone wishes to put forward any potential housing sites, they should submit a brief description and a map (preferably 1:1250 scale) with the site clearly defined on it, to: Nicola Melville / Joanne Corbett, Forward Planning Team. Cotswold District Council, Trinity Road, Cirencester, GL7 1PX. The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 8.
