New economic strategy for area
4:18pm Friday 14th September 2012 in News
Gloucestershire Local Enterprise Partnership will be developing a growth strategy to forecast the future development need for the county.
Tewkesbury Borough, Cheltenham Borough and Gloucester City councils are putting together a Joint Core Strategy (JCS) to look at land suitable for future development over the next 20 years.
Gloucestershire LEP has been asked by the councils to look at the areas economic potential and forecast its future growth need, which will be used as an evidence base for the JCS document.
Gloucestershire LEP will be working with the councils over the next few weeks to develop the document. It is expected to be complete by December so that the councils can use its recommendations in the draft JCS plan.
It is hoped a final document will be finished by August 2014.
