"Notice of Publication of the Pre-Submission Joint Core Strategy for Gloucester, Cheltenham & Tewkesbury

I am writing to inform you that between 30 June and 11 August 2014, Gloucester City, Cheltenham Borough and Tewkesbury Borough Councils will be formally publishing the Pre-Submission version of the Joint Core Strategy (JCS) for Gloucester City, Cheltenham Borough & Tewkesbury Borough.

This is a key stage in the plan production process and is the first stage of the statutory submission process to the Secretary of State and the subsequent Examination which is timetabled for early 2015.

This publication stage of the JCS is different to previous consultations which focused on the content and strategy of the JCS. The Pre-Submission documents are being published to seek public representations in respect of issues around legal compliance and soundness.

Documents and consultation material will be available via the JCS website ( and at all of the deposit locations listed with this letter.

Representations on the draft JCS should be made via:

The online consultation at:

By email to:

By post to: JCS Team, Municipal Offices, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire,GL50 9SA

Representations must be received no later than 11 August 2014. Following publication, the three JCS Councils will consider representations received and where appropriate may make minor changes to the JCS prior to Submission to the Secretary of State for independent examination.

Any person may make representations on the JCS and those made in accordance with the representations procedure, relating to the tests of soundness and legal compliance will be considered at the independent examination.

Please note that anonymous comments or comments made outside of these dates will not be accepted.

In addition, as part of the publication process, officers from the JCS local authorities are holding four ‘drop in’ events across the JCS area. JCS staff will be on hand to answer questions and advise on the representation process. At all events an exhibition, the publication documents and response forms will be available for you."
