Members of the public are being invited to have their say on a Tewkesbury Ashchurch concept masterplan.

The plan, which has been developed by Tewkesbury Borough Council and supported by Homes England, reviews the housing potential in Ashchurch to help meet the housing need in Tewkesbury.

Carrying out a review to meet the housing need in Tewkesbury is a formal requirement following the 2017 adoption of the Joint Core Strategy (which sets out the need and location for employment and housing sites across Gloucester City, Cheltenham Borough and Tewkesbury Borough up to 2031).

As well as considering housing potential, the masterplan also identifies the necessary infrastructure needed to support this development, including a new bridge over the railway, new schools including a secondary school, and the provision of number of neighbourhood centres.

The public can have their say on the concepts within the plan at a drop-in event at Ashchurch Village Hall on Friday, 23 November from 3.30pm to 7pm.

Leader of Tewkesbury Borough Council, Councillor Rob Bird, said: “This is an opportunity for anyone with an interest in Ashchurch to have their say about the best way to provide for the needs of the community, and influence the outcome. This is a concept, which needs to be shaped by the people it provides for, and this is how you can influence it. Whether you’re a resident or you work in the area, or may do in the future, please come to the drop in sessions to find out more, ask questions and tell us what you think.”
