Consultation on draft Housing Plan

Release date: 3 May 2016  

 Cotswold District Council wants to know what the public thinks about its new draft housing policy document, which includes the authority’s strategic priorities for the next four years until 2020.  Members of the public, organisations and partners are now being invited to submit comments on all sections of the draft plan. The consultation period began on Tuesday 3 May and the deadline for responses is midnight Tuesday 14 June.

The draft plan contains six main objectives:

  • Understanding the Cotswold market area.

  • Increasing the supply and access to all tenures of housing.   

  • Developing thriving, sustainable communities

  • Providing housing for our most vulnerable residents

  • Making best use of the existing housing stock

  • Prevent and respond to homelessness


To make public consultation easier, the draft plan document and an online response form are available to download on the Council Website at /about-the-council/having-your-say/consultations/ .  Members of the public are invited to submit their views and comments using an online form which contains a list of general consultation questions about the Housing Plan. The form can be submitted electronically or by post. 

Anyone wishing to see a paper copy of the consultation document, can visit the Council offices at Trinity Road, Cirencester or the Moreton Area Centre during their normal opening hours. Paper copies of the consultation response form will also be available at those locations.

The Council has a responsibility to consider the environment and will be limiting the number of printed copies of the draft plan.  However, for those experiencing particular difficulties accessing the document, for example if it is required in a format such as Braille, large print or in another language, please contact
