'Call for sites'

Opportunity to submit potential development sites

We carry out assessments of the suitability of land for a variety of uses including housing, employment and gypsies and travellers. These help us to understand the amount and type of development we can deliver through the Joint Core Strategy (covering Gloucester, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury) and the Cheltenham Plan.

To inform these assessments we carry out a ‘call for sites’ on an annual basis and accept submissions all year round. If you know of any sites which may be suitable for future development, please submit details of them to the planning policy team. This year the call for sites deadline is 12pm on 23 October 2017.

As part of the call for sites exercise, we would like to ask for information about any potential sites you are aware of in the borough that may be suitable and available for gypsy, traveller and/or travelling showpeople use.

Submissions should be made using the call for sites submission form (paper copies are available on request) and supporting information can also be sent in. All submissions must be accompanied by a map showing the site boundaries. The map should be clearly legible and have an Ordnance Survey map base. Please be aware that not all sites we receive will be considered appropriate to be included within future planning policy documents. This is particularly the case where a site is small or constrained by local issues such as flood risk.

Please send completed forms to the planning policy team with the subject ‘Call for sites’ using the email or postal address below. If you would like to complete the form digitally then contact the team and we will send it to you in a word document format.
