Closed: Public Consultation on the Cotswold District Local Plan 2011-2031: Submission Draft Reg. 19 (June 2016) ended at midnight on Monday 8th August 2016.

The consultation document sets out the Local Plan which the District Council proposes to submit to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. The Local Plan relates to the whole District and provides a strategy for delivering growth for Cotswold District up to 2031. The document provides the vision, objectives, strategic policies, development management policies and site specific allocations for delivering new homes, jobs, services, facilities and infrastructure.

Cotswold District Council considers that the Submission Draft Local Plan represents the most appropriate and sound strategy to guide development in the District up to 2031.  Representations made on the Submission Draft Local Plan will be forwarded, along with the Submission Local Plan itself and other supporting evidence, to the Planning Inspectorate who will appoint an inspector to undertake an examination to test the ‘soundness’ and legal compliance of the Plan.  This means checking that the Council has properly observed all legal and national planning policy requirements.

7.2.5 Upper Rissington (POLICY S14)

7.2.5.1 Upper Rissington is part of a former air base (RAF Little Rissington).

7.2.5.2 Despite its current poor level of facilities, Upper Rissington is identified as a principal settlement in the Development Strategy. This is because of the large number of outstanding housing commitments which will effective double the size of the settlement.

7.2.5.3 The Victory Fields development will help to meet the housing needs in the district, particularly for affordable housing. No other sites are therefore allocated for development at Upper Rissington during the plan period.

7.2.5.4 The existing employment area of Upper Rissington Business Park will be protected. The redevelopment of derelict buildings on the Business Park for employment uses is supported.
