Cotswold District Local Plan 2011-2031 Consultation

Regulation 18 ‘Issues and Options’ Consultation is available for residents to view and submit comments between the following dates:

Start date: Friday 4th February 2022

End Date: Sunday 20th March 2022

The Local Plan is the statutory development plan setting out the principal policies and proposals for land use in the District. The Council has now reached the first formal consultation stage in the partial update process – known as the Regulation 18 ‘Issues and Options’ consultation.

The public consultation invites comments on a targeted update of the adopted Local Plan, focussing on specific issues and options covering 18 planning topics or themes. Last year the Council agreed a programme of work to update the Local Plan partially so that it can respond to the Council’s new Corporate Plan, climate and ecological emergency declarations and recent changes to national planning policy and guidance.

Your comments together with updated evidence will be considered and used to inform the next stage of the plan preparation process – the draft Local Plan Partial Update – which will be the subject of a further round of consultation in 2023.

Please note the deadline for comments is 11:59pm on Sunday 20th March 2022

It is important to be aware that names and comments, once processed, will be made publicly available on the Council’s website. A Local Plan Privacy Notice is available on the Council’s website.

To assist the consultation process, public drop-in events will be held on:

Wednesday 2nd March 2022 from 2pm until 6:30pm at the Committee Rooms, Council Offices, Trinity Road, Cirencester, GL7 1PX and

Wednesday 9th March 2022 from 2pm until 6:30pm at Moreton Area Centre, High Street, Moreton-in-Marsh, GL56 0AZ
