Matson and Podsmead Supplementary Planning Documents Consultation

The City Council is consulting on Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) for Matson and Podsmead. These documents set out important planning considerations for how any regeneration in these areas should take place in the future.

The full SPDs are available to download below. In addition, short leaflets have been prepared that provide an overview of the main elements of the SPDs, as well as 'frequently asked questions'.

In addition, hard copies of the documentation have been made available at the following locations:

  • Gloucester City Council reception: Herbert Warehouse, The Docks, Gloucester, GL1 2EQ.
  • Matson Library: Winsley Road, Matson, Gloucester, GL4 6NG.
