Stroud District Local Plan
COVID 19 - DEVELOPMENT SERVICES: SITE VISITS UPDATEThe recent change in government advice means that council officers will soon be recommencing site visits for planning and building control services, which were postponed during lockdown.
The health, safety and wellbeing of the Stroud District's residents and the wider community is of paramount importance to the council and, therefore, before site visits begin again, the council needs to carry out robust risk assessments for this reintroduced activity to ensure the safety of its residents and staff alike.
We will update you shortly of our progress and the restart date of site visits.
On 19th November 2015, the Council adopted a new Local Plan for the Stroud District. This Plan replaces the 2005 Local Plan entirely, and now provides a positive planning policy framework for the District for the period up to 2031.
