  • Welcome to the Coleford Town Plan. A chance to have your say on the future of your town

Welcome to Coleford Town Plan

Coleford is forming its first Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP).

After thorough consultation and numerous painstaking drafts, the Plan was submitted to the Forest of Dean District Council on 1st March 2018. This will be followed by a further consultation, examination and referendum.

The NDP process is being steered by a group of  local people and councillors who live and work in Coleford.

As part of the changes that have been brought in through The Localism Act and Neighbourhood Planning Regulations communities have the right to produce their own NDP for their own community.

The Plan is a document made up of policies with supporting maps, lists and information, all of which will focus on shaping new development and conservation in the area.

The Plan has to be in line with the Local Plan and National Planning Policy Framework but with a view to conserving the character and most valued elements of the town. Coleford has always changed, but this is a chance for the people who live, work and use Coleford as their centre, to have their say in the town’s future.
