West Cheltenham Cyber Central garden community

Cheltenham and Tewkesbury councils are working together to drive a world-class development at West Cheltenham known as Cyber Central garden community. Our vision is to create a vibrant pioneering community integrating hi-tech business, residential and leisure uses. It will require the highest standards of environmental sustainability integrating exemplar homes as part of a thriving campus and garden community.

This planning framework, called a supplementary planning document (SPD), provides a broad masterplan setting out important principles including connections from existing neighbourhoods, the design of green spaces, new homes, employment spaces and community facilities. This SPD follows on from the allocation of this land for the development in principle through the adopted Gloucester, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Joint Core Strategy (2017). Going forward this SPD will inform planning application submissions on the site.
