Vote for a New Road Name on the Fortey House Site

The new development at the Fortey House site in Northleach requires a new street name, but the developer has not put forward any names. Therefore the local planning authority has asked the local community for feedback and to put forward some suggestions.

We previously sent out a message to our community email list inviting people to put forward their suggestions for a road name with a local connection. We now invite you to vote on the suggestions, and we will put forward the most popular to Cotswold District Council.

Before you vote, please take a quick look at the reasons these names have been suggested: Continue reading Vote for a New Road Name on the Fortey House Site

2nd Neighbourhood Plan Open Day

Saturday 5th July 2014
10am – 5pm @ The Cotswold Hall

Do you care about the appearance of Northleach? Then Northleach needs you to help create a Town Design Statement. This document will identify the characteristics of the town that are valued by local people, especially the physical aspects such as buildings and landscape. The end result will be a document that can become a “material consideration” in planning policy, and it can influence the appearance of future development in the town. It will also become part of the Neighbourhood Plan.

We need YOUR views on what makes Northleach special!
