Planning

A large building being re-roofed

There are more than 250,000 residents in South Gloucestershire and, as the fastest growing area in the South West, we are committed to creating more and better places to live and work. 

When deciding what should be built in the area the council is guided by central government and community consultation in drawing up policies, such as the South Gloucestershire Local Plan, which focuses new development on the fringes of the built-up area as well as considering access and transportation.
