SHELAA call for sites

We are undertaking a further Call for Sites to identify land that could help to deliver a variety of accommodation and community needs.

We want to hear from anyone who can provide land or buildings for potential housing, renewable energy, commercial development. Or which would be suitable for accommodating gypsies, travellers and showpeople.

Anyone who has previously submitted sites to the Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) should reconfirm the availability of land. You should also let us know of any recent progress in bringing sites forward for development.

This is a routine update to our SHELAA and is not related to any proposed changes to the planning system. The SHELAA helps assess the development potential of sites across the District. Although separate from the Local Plan site allocation process, it will be used as evidence to help update the Cotswold District Local Plan 2011 to 2031.

Submit a site to the SHELAA

Submit a site by completing a site submission form with:

  • a brief description of the proposal
  • details of site ownership
  • a map (preferably 1:1250 scale) with the site area outlined in red

The deadline for site submissions is Friday 13 November 2020.

 Please send in the form by email where possible. Submissions can be made by:

  • emailing (email limit is 10 MB)
  • posting them to Forward Planning, Cotswold District Council, Trinity Road, Cirencester, GL7 1PX
