Planning & Development

Cirencester Town Council, following consultation and engagement with the community and other stakeholders, together with seeking professional advice, has built on its place shaping work through the Community Plan ‘Our Future Cirencester' and the Green Spaces Strategy.

This will enable the Town Council to build on some of the place shaping work already delivered and to strengthen its position on planning consultations and applications on behalf of the community, improve design standards and ensure that new built development and changes to the public realm are appropriate to the character of the town:

•             Town Centre Public Realm Design Code
•             Concept Statement
•             Planning Statement

With these principles in mind, Cirencester Town Council has responded to key strategic planning consultations and applications, which are listed below:
•             Cotswold District Local Plan 2011-2031 Reg. 18 Development Strategy and                                      Site Allocation Response
•             Cotswold District Local Plan 2011-2031 Reg. 19 Response
•             Cotswold District Local Plan 2011-2031 Focussed Changes Addendum Response
•             Chesterton South Outline Planning Application Response

Cirencester Town Council commissioned the following reports from the Pegasus Group in 2016:

•             Concept Statement
•             Facilities Plan
•             Housing Distribution
•             Migration Analysis Report
