Draft Gloucester Public Realm Strategy

Gloucester City Council is currently undertaking a 6-week public consultation on a draft document title “Gloucester Public Realm Strategy 2017”. This guidance will be used to support the regeneration of the City and will form part of the evidence base for the City Plan in due course. This consultation is in accordance with the Town and County Planning (Local Development) (England) Regulations 2012.

This guidance will ensure that forthcoming schemes are well considered and of a high quality, which preserves and enhances the City’s unique and distinctive historic character. The City has large areas of public realm, ranging in type and quality which have been installed at different times over the past 30 years or more. This guidance will be used to assist in the development of detailed public realm projects around the City Centre and will set certain benchmarks for quality materials and designs. Some of the main aims of the Strategy include reducing unnecessary street clutter, accommodating the needs of people with disabilities in the design of new areas of public realm, and using high quality materials which are robust and visually appealing.

An accompanying leaflet has also been produced which provides a summary of the main aspects of the document.

This consultation has now closed.
