At the start of the month we reported that South Glos Council had approved a revised Policies, Sites and Places Plan to go out for consultation. That consultation is now available online and you can comment up until 7pm on 8th September.
The plan provides detailed planning policies that the council will use when making decisions on planning applications and also protects some of our much valued open spaces by designating them Local Green Spaces. Others that were nominated as Local Green Space are not being taken forward at this stage, including Woodlands Farm. This consultation is your chance to comment. Further green spaces could be designated in the new Local Plan, which is due to be completed during 2018 and will also allocate new land for housing and provision for travellers.
