The JCS was adopted on 11 December 2018 following a rigorous process of preparation, consultation and examination. As the centre of Gloucestershire for economic development, it is vital to have an up to date development plan for the JCS area which in setting out the amount of new homes, jobs and supporting infrastructure that is needed to 2031 details the strategy for how this development is to be delivered in a managed and resilient way protecting our exceptional natural and built environment. This adopted Plan has been shaped by the thousands of responses received at earlier stages of the project and we wish to thank those residents, community groups, businesses and service providers who all helped to create this plan and we ask that everyone continues to work together to deliver the Plan and its aims.
