Stonehouse Neighbourhood Development Plan

Stonehouse Neighbourhood Plan takes the opportunity offered by the  Localism Act 2011 to create a statutory plan which will shape, protect and enhance Stonehouse for the next decade and a half.

Stonehouse Neighbourhood Development Plan 2016-2031

The Neighbourhood Plan aims to ensure that the development of the town will contribute to what residents most value about Stonehouse; a strong, friendly community, a distinctive thriving town in a beautiful rural setting with excellent transport links and employment opportunities. All planning applications will have to pay regard to and conform with this Plan through to 2031.

Stonehouse Neighbourhood Plan is based on extensive public consultation; it was prepared by an independent group of volunteers including both residents and town councillors, the Stonehouse Neighbourhood Plan Working Group. The Neighbourhood Plan Progress page gives more information on how the plan was developed. You can also view information on the submission of the draft Plan to the District Council, consultation undertaken for the Plan and the Neighbourhood Plan evidence base on this website.

Work to develop a plan for Stonehouse took place between September 2013 and March 2016 and concluded with a referendum on 23 November 2017 when 85.2% of electors casting a vote, voted to accept the plan. 

Stroud District Council formally adopted the plan on 22nd February 2018. It now forms part of the statutory Development Plan for the District of Stroud. It will be used when the District Council decides planning applications within Stonehouse. Please see Stroud District Council's Made Neighbourhood Plans web page for further information on the adoption of Stonehouse Neighbourhood Plan and its progress through the neighbourhood planning process.

Stonehouse Town Council's Regeneration and Environment Committee is responsible for monitoring and reviewing the Neighbourhood Plan.
