Blog > Joint Core Strategy > Final JCS housing numbers

Some good news and bad news.

The houses to be built in Gloucestershire has now been dropped from 33,200 to 30,500.

This has meant some of the green belt ares where proposed development was to take place have been removed from the JCS, i.e. Twigworth and Up Hatherly. And some other areas the housing number has been reduced, e.g. North Churchdown.

Unfortunately many other areas including South Churchdown have seen the numbers of housing significantly increased!!

Here are the figures:

Innsworth: 1,250 homes (Twigworth half of development scrapped, was earmarked for 3,075 homes)

North Churchdown: 532 homes (down from 845)

South Churchdown: 868 homes (up from 639)

North Brockworth: 1,500 homes (down from 1,548)

North West Cheltenham: 4,785 homes (down from 4,829)

South Cheltenham Leckhampton: 1,124 homes (up from 1,075)

MOD site at Ashchurch: 2,125 homes (same as originally planned)

Total number of new homes to be built on new strategic sites: 12,184

Number of houses already in the pipeline: 18,885

Total number of planned houses 2011-2031: 31,069
