Residents and local businesses are asked to give their views on the Leckhampton with Warden Hill Neighbourhood Plan in a six week public consultation ending Tuesday 12 March.

The Leckhampton and Warden Hill neighbourhood plan is now available online for local residents and stakeholders to view and comment. The plan is a key part of ‘place shaping’ in Cheltenham and will help to guide development in Leckhampton and Warden Hill up to 2031, as it will be used in decision making on planning applications within the neighbourhood area.

The local communities and stakeholders have been engaged throughout the preparation stage in 2023 and the plan which has emerged reflects their aspirations wherever possible. This includes guiding future development, helping to safeguard green space and protecting the heritage of the local area.

Tracey Birkinshaw director of community & economic development said: “Neighbourhood planning is a positive part of plan making and Leckhampton and Warden Hill parish council has worked tremendously hard to develop the plan for their area.  Following consultation in 2023, the parish council took into account the feedback received and has submitted this updated Neighbourhood Plan.

‘’The council is keen to hear the views of people across Leckhampton and Warden Hill and I’d also like to thank those who have already engaged in the process – your views are valuable in understanding what is important for your local area.”

The document is available to view online at and also on the Parish Council’s website:
