Junction 9 and A46 (Ashchurch) improvements

A wide variety of route options are currently being considered and technically assessed for suitability.
This programme of work is being lead by Gloucestershire County Council, please visit their website for more detailed information.
Strategic and Local Plan (SLP)
The Strategic and Local Plan (SLP) is a review of the Joint Core Strategy (JCS) which was adopted in December 2017. It’s a joint plan with Cheltenham Borough and Gloucester City councils which sets out how the local areas will be developed between 2011 and 2031. It sets out the planning policy and site allocations to deliver development needs, whilst protecting the natural and built environment.
The area identified for the garden town will be considered for development in the SLP.
