Public Consultation on Stroud District Core Strategy

Comments Off on Public Consultation on Stroud District Core Strategy

The six week public consultation on the Preferred Strategy for the growth and development of Stroud District up to 2026 is now open. The consultation seeks public views on:
1) The overall strategy approach
2) An overarching vision for how the District should evolve over the plan period
3) A set of ‘mini visions’ for distinct parts of the District
4) Proposed locations for housing and employment growth; and how the required housing numbers should be distributed between these locations
5) An employment strategy
6) Settlement classification: a ‘hierarchy’ for the District’s settlements
Stroud District Council would like the views of as many people as possible, to help the Council refine and develop a ‘preferred strategy’ for the District.
