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

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.

Avison Young who are running the consultation and preparing initial designs have suplied the following background information. The map may be concerning but its “indicative” and clearly not inspired by our Forum masterplan!
