• New outline planning application for Elms Park due for submission Friday, September 09, 2016

     

    As a result of extensive consultations and project development, the Elms Park Consortium will submit an outline planning application for Elms Park at North West Cheltenham on September 9th 2016.
    The consortium, led by national house builders Bloor Homes and Persimmon Homes, is proposing a new mixed use development to deliver up to 4,115 new homes, new primary schools, an ‘all through’ school, a modern business park and new transport links into central Cheltenham and Tewkesbury.
    The proposed development is aimed at not just building houses, but at helping to create jobs as well as preserve and enhance vital green spaces for the whole community. More than forty per cent of the development consists of green space, with extensive landscaping, and the planting of hedgerows and trees aimed at conserving important habitats.
    With a strong focus on local employment, the proposals include substantial employment space to generate around 5,000 direct new jobs in a 10-hectare modern business park, retail outlets, schools and care facilities, meeting the demand of regional businesses while also helping to attract new employers. The whole of Elms Park, homes, schools and business premises will also benefit from superfast broadband.
    In addition, the creation of over 300 apprenticeship places, during the 15-year construction period will provide significant benefits to the region’s job market and skills base.
    A spokesperson for the Elms Park Consortium says: “It has taken many years of hard work, detailed planning and consultation to get us to the point where we can formally submit these proposals.  We are very proud of this project and the way it is developing, it will bring significant benefits to the existing community and businesses in North Gloucestershire.”
