Attention land owners - council launches 'Call for Sites'
By Matt Hall | 14th October 2020
Cotswold District Council is looking for sites to help with a variety of accommodation and community needs.
The organisation wants to hear from anyone who can provide land or buildings for potential housing, renewable energy, commercial applications or which would be suitable for accommodating gypsies, travellers and show people.
Anyone who has previously submitted sites to the Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) should reconfirm their availability and inform the council of any recent progress in bringing sites forward for development.
The deadline for site submissions is November 13.
The SHELAA helps assess the development potential of sites across the district. Although separate from the Local Plan site allocation process, it will be used as evidence to help update the Cotswold District Local Plan 2011-2031.
Cotswold District Council say this is a routine update and is not related to any proposed changes to the planning system.
Cllr Rachel Coxcoon, cabinet member for forward planning, said: "It is extremely important that the SHELAA is up to date and as accurate as possible to help us address housing and other associated needs in the future.
"That way we can maximise the potential of available land for the benefit of as many residents as we can."
