Few things can me more important to a community than how it will shape its future. The Joint Core Strategy, which encompasses Gloucester City, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury, seeks to do that by making sure we work together as Local Authorities, plan so that development and growth are equitable, and meet the needs of the community as a whole. This approach is most important for Quedgeley/Kingsway given the strains on our present infrastructure and amenities. The JCS development of the preferred option is open to public consultation until 12 Feb.  The attached photo document summarises the option. If you want to learn more and have your say why not visit JCS at Alternatively, you can let me have your comments at  and I will pass them on.

    Fred, I find myself frustrated at these initiatives as if they were any good we wouldn't have, as you say "strains on our infrastructure and amenities". Kingsway was a completely new estate, if not greenfield as near as darned and the local authority had the chance to plan amenities and infrastructure and obviously didn't do it properly or they wouldn't be strained now. What is the point in these types of exercise if they can't get it right on a new estate. Thanks for the info and I will visit the website to see if I can help us locally to improve but I do fear that it is a bureaucratic exercise that will do little.
