In terms of promotion through the Local Plan process, the land has previously been promoted to the SHLAA/SALA, in 2011, the result of that was that it was found suitable, available and deliverable for residential development, with a calculated capacity of 36 dwellings.

The only constraint identified was a potential flood risk, but it wasn't considered severe enough to make the site unsuitable at that time. The site was again promoted in 2015/16, but was rejected from the assessment for the following reasons:

"The impact on the character and significance of the conservation area and the setting of the neighbouring listed buildings could prohibit development on this site. The area's sensitivity lies in the role as a valuable open gap in ribbon development, allowing fine glimpse views across the valley from the Ebley Road, and as a setting to the canal and associated Thames and Severn Way to the south. The value of the area lies in its location within the Industrial Heritage Conservation Area." A Heritage Assessment on this site was undertaken to inform the SALA. We understand that this site was not promoted through the EiP for allocation in the plan.


The land of approximately 2.3 acres is adjacent to Ebley Road with a metal gate for vehicular access. It is located between Stroud and the small settlement of Ryeford on the approach to Stonehouse. It forms a rectangular piece of land and is close to existing dwellings. The site's roadside frontage is bounded by hedging interspersed with trees, and the plot boundary follows the local topography as it extends away from the road towards Stroud Water Canal.


The site can be viewed from the roadside during normal daylight hours taking care and at your own risk. An open viewing morning is being held from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm on Wednesday 27th April 2022. Please contact our Land Department on 01285 646770 to book an appointment.
