Local Plan Review Issues and Options



View the Issues and Options paper:

Our 2017 Issues and Options Discussion Paper posed a series of questions to help focus consultation feedback.

View The Issues and Options consultation report. 

The first stage of the Local Plan review was the Issues and Options Public Consultation, which ran for eight weeks between 11th October 2017 and 5th December 2017.

The consultation sought views and suggestions about particular topics, issues, needs and opportunities mentioned by this Discussion Paper. And we also wanted to hear if you thought the Discussion Paper had missed anything.

Next stage: Emerging Strategy 2018

How could you get involved?

The purpose of this consultation was to understand:-

  • Which issues relating to the places you live, work or visit in Stroud District are of particular concern to you today?
  • Are there matters that are likely to grow in importance over the next 20 years?
  • What are the options for addressing them? Public exhibitions: We held drop-in sessions and exhibitions around the District during October and early November 2017. Officers working on the Local Plan review were on hand to chat about the issues affecting Stroud District and to talk through your initial views.
  • We want people to engage early on in the process so that responses can be fed into the next stage of the review of the Local Plan.
