Tewkesbury Borough Council is asking the public for feedback on how it enforces planning regulations.
An enforcement plan has been drafted which explains the council’s approach, outlines its powers and details the ways in which planning breaches can be reported. It also summarises what can be expected of the council throughout the enforcement process. Officers are now asking for the public’s view on the enforcement plan and are keen to hear suggestions about how the service should operate and how improvements could be made.
Following a bid to the Government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund, Tewkesbury Borough Council has been awarded £8.1 million to help improve transport links to Tewkesbury Ashchurch Housing Zone (north of the MoD site).

The Proposed Main Modifications have now been agreed by all three JCS authorities for public consultation which will be undertaken from Monday 27th February 2017 to end of day on Monday 10th April 2017.
Council gives the green light to transform Spring Gardens and Oldbury Road to further rejuvenate Tewkesbury. A £5m project to revive an important but long-neglected part of Tewkesbury town has been given the go-ahead by councillors.
