'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. We also 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.

Our call for sites is now live. Please send submissions to us before Monday 14 March to have your site assessed in this year's report. Sites may still be submitted after this date but may not be assessed as quickly as those submitted before the date.

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 to use.

You can make a submission 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 of the authority your site sits within, with the subject ‘Call for sites’ using the email or postal address below.
