20s PLENTY FOR US

Making our roads safer by driving at 20mph in residential areas.

Already over 10m people live in local authorities which are adopting or have adopted this policy. Most importantly, through democratic debate those communities have decided that "20's Plenty Where People Live". And it is those same communities who have then changed their behaviour to drive slower in residential streets and where people walk and cycle. Its affordable too!!

West Cheltenham Urban Extension 

Plans have been announced for the development of a 45 hectare Business Park and 500 houses to the west of Fiddlers Green and Springbank. The proposal is part of the JCS (Joint Core Strategy) a plan to build over 30,000 houses in Cheltenham, Gloucester and Tewkesbury between now and 2030. The site has been downgraded from Greenbelt owing to the need to fulfil housing allocations as a result of the successful campaign to prevent development in Leckhampton. 

For information please see JOINT CORE STRATEGY

The final proposals are available to download from the here.  You have until Tuesday 31st May to register your views.

Saxon Quarter £1/2m million investment

The new development on the former Christ College site is well under way and will bring 90 new properties including 18 affordable homes; 12 to rent and 6 shared ownership. The site also has a section 106 agreement which will provide funds as follows;  £237k for local schools, £16k for libraries and £30k for play equipment. The new homes bonus will see central government match the council tax receipts for the properties for 6 years which could amount to over half a million pounds. How will they spend it
