The Government is considering increasing the housing numbers for Stroud District to find through its Local Plan.
Stroud District Council is therefore launching a focused eight-week public consultation from 21 October 2020 to 16 December 2020 on additional housing options and sites, which could be brought into the emerging Local Plan, if required.
They would like your views on whether and how a reserve housing supply should be identified, in case any of the Local Plan’s site allocations were to fall short on delivering the numbers of homes expected.
A pdf leaflet advertising the consultation is attached.
