We are encouraging people to have a say on our Policies Sites and Places Plan during a period of formal consultation which opens today, Friday 22 May.

The plan sets out new planning policies for South Gloucestershire and looks at how we will manage new development and growth in the area as well as allocating and safeguarding land for various types of development.

Working alongside our adopted Core Strategy to form the new Local Plan for South Gloucestershire, it will be used to determine planning applications over the lifetime of the plan up to 2027. It replaces the Minerals and Waste Local Plan (2002) and the South Gloucestershire Local Plan (2006).

You can find details of all the documents related to the Policies Sites and Places Plan online at or visit our consultation pages for more information

In addition, copies of the consultation documents are available at the following council One-Stop Shops:

  • Thornbury Library, St Mary Street, Thornbury, BS35 2AA
  • Yate, Kennedy Way, BS37 4DQ (access via West Walk)
  • Kingswood Civic Centre, High Street, Kingswood, BS15 9TR
  • Patchway Hub, Rodway Road, Patchway, BS34 5PE.

You can also view them at libraries across South Gloucestershire. Find your nearest library including information on opening hours at

Once the formal period of consultation has ended the plan will be submitted to the Secretary of State before it is examined in public by an independent Inspector.

Consultation runs from today, Friday 22 May until close of business on Friday 3 July.

If you have any questions, or would like further information about the consultation, please contact the Strategic Planning Policy Team by email or telephone 01454 863469.
