City Plan


The Gloucester Partnership and City Council have published documents for consultation and we want your input!

City Vision

The City Vision will be a key strategic document for the City over the next ten years and is being prepared by the Local Strategic Partnership (Gloucester Partnership).  It sets out a clear intent for partnership working across the City in the public sector, private sector and voluntary sector.  When complete it will identify key issues to be overcome, a clear direction on where the City is going in the future and where its priorities lie.

City Plan
A key tool to deliver the physical elements of the Vision will be the City Plan.  When complete, the City Plan will set out the planning framework to guide the ongoing regeneration of the City to 2031, as well as policies required to support development and protect the City’s natural and historic environment.

Getting involved
Consultation documents and questionnaires can be downloaded from the following websites:

Two plots of land needed in Gloucestershire for an exciting new food project - 'Get up and Grow More!'

We need two plots of land to rent, if you can help please email or call 01242 224321. Please pass this on to friends, colleagues etc. 

Vision 21, Gloucestershire’s own Climate Change charity, has funding to set up three community fruit and vegetable growing spaces in different locations throughout Gloucestershire.  Each space would need to be available for three years and around 800 square metres per site is required. As well as providing a supported growing space for those without gardens/allotments the project will also co-ordinate free Grow your own’ training sessions each year for the community of growers and wider public. There will also be two events organised in Gloucestershire each year on the importance of local food as well as a food swap forum created!

This is an incredibly exciting project which is very much in line with the organisations aims and objectives and many of its recent projects. For example, Get up and Grow which was established voluntarily by Vision 21 three years ago has won two awards!  We also hope that by touring GrowVision, our new sustainable food exhibition, we can raise awareness of the importance of local food and growing your own. We are delighted that through this new funding we can now enable even more people to start growing. (For more details on where GrowVision is touring click here).

If you know of land that may be available for this project please let us know. Perhaps you are involved with a project/centre that has both spare land and existing users that may find the scheme of interest, or perhaps you know of a local farmer with land available to lease.  Please pass this email on and please keep in touch with our many projects via the Vision 21 website and facebook page.

Many thanks.
