Ideas start to blossom for Tewkesbury garden communities project

| News

Plans for a series of new garden communities are being developed and shared with local people to create inspiring new places to live, work and learn on the edge of the Cotswolds.

Bellway Strategic Land, in collaboration with Bromford and Mansfield LLP, are currently engaging on proposals for a series of new garden communities at North Ashchurch, Tewksbury. The new communities form part of a wider scheme which was awarded Garden Town status in 2019.

Working closely with key stakeholders including the Borough Council, Parish Councils, Homes England and Gloucester CC, a masterplan is being developed which will deliver up to 4,000 new homes with new schools, community facilities, public open spaces and other important infrastructure.

The plans are now being shared with the local communities with over 12,500 leaflets being sent out and three community consultation events being held in the local area. A dedicated website has also been set up to inform and engage with the community:

Robert James, Bellway Strategic Land Director, said:

“We want to create a vibrant, healthy, and happy place for people to live and work in this beautiful area, on the edge of the Cotswolds. We are keen to engage with the local community as the proposals evolve. We hope as many people as possible attend our events, share thoughts and challenges, as well as chat about everything from the name of the communities and types of facilities we should provide, to its look, feel and design. We look forward to combining the team’s extensive experience with local input and ideas.

We recognise that there are challenges, in particular flooding and highways, to deliver this project, but so far the proposals are being well received and we are gaining support for what is a significant project for Bellway both in terms of setting the standards for future development and delivering high-quality housing.”
