Gloucestershire of the Future

The Gloucestershire of the Future – Super Cities, Cyber Parks and Eco-Villages?

A  couple more reports looking to the future have been published recently.  The “Big Conversation” was a public consultation earlier this year involving about 6,500 people.  It identifies eight challenges and eight ambitions for the county.  Six “transformational” ideas for getting the county to where it wants to be by 2050 were considered by the participants. 

Local developers and landowners have published a report on their own vision for Sharpness Eco Village.  This would be a self-contained, sustainably designed settlement where people can live and work.  With up to 5,000 dwellings proposed, it is also being referred to as a Garden City.
