Neighbourhood Development Plan
Shaping the Heart of Stroud
People have a new opportunity to shape the heart of Stroud as the Town Council starts a review of the Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP). The new consultation was kicked off in November 2022 at Stroud Farmers' Market where council staff spoke to over 100 people about the plan.
This first stage of the consultation was open until 31st December 2022. People can still have their say.
Work to develop a plan for the town centre took place between July 2014 and November 2015 and concluded with a referendum on 18 August 2016 when 91% of electors casting a vote, voted to accept the plan.
The Plan was adopted by Stroud District Council on 27th October 2016.
The Stroud town centre Neighbourhood Development Plan now forms part of the statutory development plan for the district of Stroud. The town centre – where we live, work, shop, visit, play, and more, will be shaped by a neighbourhood plan. This means that the plan will be taken into account when planning applications are considered and planning proposals are made. The plan also contains action points, promotional policies and implementation measures.
