Five Acres Update from Leader of the Council Tim Gwilliam

We have been provided with Gloucestershire Rural Community Council’s (GRCC) report on the recent consultation activity undertaken in respect of the Five Acres site. GRCC were commissioned by the project Design Consultants, Pick Everard (PE), to undertake the consultation, a key strand of the work that PE have been asked to complete. Looking at that report and the comments made by individuals and organisations it is clear that while we can have confidence that the proposals we are working on are sound and in line with community aspirations.
