Dursley is preparing a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) under the powers granted by the Localism Act 2011. NDPs give local communities the power to put in place planning policies for the future development and growth of their neighbourhoods.

LATEST NEWS - May 2018

The Submission Version of the Future Dursley Neighbourhood Development Plan and associated required documents will be considered by Dursley Town Council at their meeting on 8th May 2018. If approved these will then be submitted to Stroud District Council (SDC) as required by Regulation 15 (1) of the Neighbourhood Planning (general) Regulations 2012 before the end of May. SDC will run a further six week consultation in June/July 2018. The Future NDP will be subject to an independent examination in late Summer and a referendum in the Autumn. If approved and supported by a majority of residents the plan will be adopted by the District Council and become a statutory document.

This means that the plan will be taken into account when planning applications are considered or proposals made.

The draft plan is based upon evidence-based research and extensive community consultation. It covers such issues as:

  • where new shops, homes and other developments should be built;
  • whether there are important local green spaces which should be designated for protection;
  • which sites could be developed for housing or employment; and
  • whether there are other community needs e.g. car parking or community facilities.

This latest version of the plan is available to view online or as a hard copy at the Town Council offices or the Library.

This community led project is being guided by a Steering Group made up of local residents and town councillors. To find out more please email: ndp@dursleytowncouncil.gov.uk or call 01453 547758
