Pre-Submission City Plan

Neighbourhood Development Plans

1.5 Neighbourhood planning was first introduced in the Localism Act 2011 and Gloucester City Council has a duty to support communities in making their Neighbourhood Development Plan, commonly referred to as a Neighbourhood Plan. Neighbourhood Plans must support the delivery of strategic policies within the GCP.

1.6 At present, there are no Neighbourhood Plans in Gloucester City. However, if these were to be progressed in the future, and where they are 'made' (adopted), the plan and its policies will become a part of the Development Plan (together with the JCS and GCP) and will be used to guide development and determine applications in the designated neighbourhood planning area. The City Council will welcome and support communities that wish to take forward a Neighbourhood Plan.
