Gloucestershire County Council is currently consulting on an improvement scheme around M5 Junction 10. The scheme aims to support an increase in local housing supply and economic growth by removing constraints on the highway network and providing an integrated package of transport infrastructure. The scheme elements include an ‘all movements’ junction at M5 Junction 10, complemented by a new link road to the west of Cheltenham, and improvements along the A4019 and at Coombe Hill junction.
Consultation to identify the best location for the upgraded motorway junction will be open for 6 weeks from 00:01 on 14 October until 23:59 on 25 November 2020.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in line with social distancing guidelines, all consultation information will be made available online: www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/J10.

In 2016 a group of local people gathered to
together with the hope of coming up with a plan to make Hesters Way a better
place to live. After hundreds of hours of conversation, discussion and debate
the Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is now taking shape. The Steering Committee would very much like
to thank everyone involved for their effort, goodwill, and encouragement
throughout the process.
Thanks for taking the time to read the Hesters Way Neighbourhood Development Plan we hope you agree that the NDP presents a fabulous vision for the future and offers the chance for every resident to thrive. If you would like to comment on the draft plan or attend a meeting please contact us here

Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Councils are working together to drive a world class development at West Cheltenham to be known as Cyber Central Garden Community. Their vision is to create a vibrant pioneering community integrating hi-tech business, residential and leisure uses. It will require the highest standards of environmental sustainability integrating exemplar homes as part of a thriving campus and garden community. https://democracy.cheltenham.gov.uk/documents/s31455/2019_12_17_CAB_West_Cheltenham_SPD.pdf
planning framework called a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) above will
provide a broad masterplan setting out important principles including
connections from existing neighbourhoods, the design of green spaces, new
homes, employment spaces and community facilities. This SPD follows on from the
allocation of this land for the development in principle through the adopted
Gloucester, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Joint Core Strategy (2017). Going forward
this SPD will inform future planning application submissions on the site.
It is not the most attractive piece of land in Lancashire. But for Janine Bebbington and her friends, Moorside Fields was where all the important things in life happened.
“It was our playground, it was where we went and climbed trees, used the running track from the nearby school, played rounders, explored, kissed people in the bushes, drank cider, did all the things that people get up to in green spaces.”
Sitting in the middle of three estates in south Lancaster, the five fields have been enjoyed by locals for more than half a century. But plans to ensure that future generations will find delights there have been scuppered by the supreme court. On Wednesday, the court stripped Moorside Fields of its village green status, a ruling that campaigners predict will have major implications for the protection of open spaces across England and Wales.
