How could you get involved?

The purpose of this Emerging Strategy consultation was to understand:-

  • Have we identified the main issues and needs relating to the places you live, work or visit in Stroud District?
  • Do you support the potential strategy for addressing these issues and meeting future development needs? Or do you support an alternative approach?

This Emerging Strategy consultation involved:

  • Public exhibitions We held public exhibitions around the District during the consultation period. This provided an opportunity to chat to officers working on the Local Plan review. 
  • Town and parish councils workshop We met with town and parish councils to discuss issues across different parts of the District.
  • Direct communication We emailed agents, developers, key stakeholders, local interest groups and members of the public who had expressed an interest in being kept informed.
  • Individual groups We held bespoke meetings to capture views. Please contact us if you know of a group that would like to get involved in future consultation events.
