Joint Core Strategy - Issues and Options


List of answers to the specified question

4.1.43 As Tewkesbury Borough Council are aware, Gladman have identified a potential site for a new garden village. We consider that the site presents an excellent opportunity to work in partnership with the Councils, County Council, local community and stakeholders to create a, sustainable, distinctive and attractive new settlement which will help to meet the needs across the plan area.

4.1.44 At present Gladman consider that the proposed new Garden Village has the potential to deliver in the region of 3,000 new homes alongside business/employment land, community uses and extensive greenspace.

4.1.45 The site is located in a sustainable location west of the A38, and approximately 4.5km from Tewkesbury town centre. Frequent bus services run along the A38, providing sustainable transport links between Tewkesbury, Cheltenham and Gloucester, ensuring access to employment and higher order retail and leisure opportunities across the local area.

4.1.46 It is envisaged that any new settlement will be delivered on a phased basis, with a master builder delivering key infrastructure including a local centre, schools, community facilities and landscaping. Our plans are at an early stage and further technical and environmental evaluation is required, however evidence produced to-date confirms that the land is relatively unconstrained and is entirely suitable for the scale and form of development being proposed.

4.1.47 Alongside this representation, Gladman have also completed and submitted a site proforma, providing further details regarding the proposed new Garden Village.

4.1.48 A plan identifying the broad area of growth can be found at Appendix 1.
