The Joint Core Strategy (JCS) is a partnership between Gloucester City Council, Cheltenham Borough Council, and Tewkesbury Borough Council, supported by Gloucestershire County Council.
The JCS was formed to produce a co-ordinated strategic development plan to show how this area will develop during the period up to 2031.
The JCS is steered by officers and elected members from each of the three local authorities - current steering group.
The JCS is now at the main modification stage and based upon the Inspectors Interim Report, the list of main modifications to the plan have been compiled. Subject to Council approvals, these will be consulted upon and further hearings will be held in the new year (dates to be confirmed).
Please follow these links for further information:
The JCS was submitted to the Government for inspection on 20 November 2014. Further details regarding the timetable will be made available in due course. Read the press release.
