A PUBLIC meeting in Northleach where residents could comment on a blueprint which will set out where the local community wants development to take place was a success.

Northleach Town Council clerk Cat Crompton said: “The meeting was well attended.

“People took the opportunity to comment on the site assessments that had been carried out by members of the steering group, councillors and some residents.”

Cotswold District Council had asked for feedback on four key development sites before the end of March, including Fortey House, a field at Bassett Road, a field to the east of Nostle Road and the Ferrari garage site.

“The town’s steering group decided it would be a good opportunity to assess an additional 10 sites which were previously identified as having potential for development but were listed as unsuitable by CDC,” continued Mrs Crompton.

“These extra assessments will not be submitted to CDC but will be used for the plan so we can look at the whole Northleach picture.”

Northleach Town Council has now put the plans, as well as the feedback, together and is displaying them at the Westwoods Centre and is still inviting comments from residents.
