South Gloucestershire Council: The Local Plan Consultation Document

The feedback received from last year’s new Local Plan Prospectus consultation has helped us to shape and prepare the next stage of the Local Plan. The Local Plan Consultation Document is available for comment between 5 February 2018 and 30 April 2018.

The Local Plan Consultation Document seeks views on how we can ensure the delivery of new homes and jobs that are needed along with the infrastructure, services and facilities to support sustainable growth in our area. To achieve this we are also consulting on some key areas of change, where we are developing new approaches to planning for future development in South Gloucestershire.

The Consultation Document is supported by a range of documents, including a ‘call for sites’ – where landowners can submit details of land they would like utilised for development. These documents can be viewed at www.southglos.gov.uk/newlocalplanfeb2018.

Documents are available to view on the Council’s website at www.southglos.gov.uk/newlocalplanfeb2018 and online at South Gloucestershire Libraries (please refer to www.southglos.gov.uk/libraries  for locations and opening times).
