Debate on transport and housing

A consultation is getting under way in Gloucestershire, looking at future provision of new housing, managing traffic and public transport.

People in Gloucester, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury have been invited to have their say on issues which will form a strategy replacing the Local Plan.

The Joint Core Strategy (JCS) will plan how the area will develop during the period up to 2026.

The 10-week consultation period ends on Monday 1 February 2010.

'Future development'

The JCS will set out the approach the three authorities will take to protect and enhance the natural and historic environment and deal with climate change.

It will set out policies for the location and timing of new housing and employment development, key infrastructure, community, leisure and tourism facilities.

Cheltenham Borough Council leader, Steve Jordan, said: ''The public input now will be vital to help the three authorities achieve the best possible solutions for the future development of the area and protection of its attractive environment."

A series of manned and unmanned exhibitions setting out the key areas for consultation will run throughout November and December in all three areas.
