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 - August 2018

The Regulation 16 Consultation is now closed. SDC received four detailed written representations which you can read below.

John Slater, BA (Hons), DMS, RTPI has been appointed to carry out the independent examination of the Dursley NDP. His initial comments are in a short report which you can also read below. It is anticipated that this examination will be completed in September.

If the Dursley NDP is apprioved, a referendum will be held in the Autumn 2018 or early 2019. If a majority of residents vote in favour of the plan it 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.

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
