Following submission of the Cotswold District Local Plan 2011-2031 for examination in July 2017, hearing sessions were conducted by an independent Planning Inspector in October and November 2017. During the course of the examination, a series of Post-Submission Main Modifications have been prepared (“the Modifications”). The Modifications include changes to the Policies Map.

The Modifications are now published and the Inspector is inviting representations to be submitted through this formal consultation in accordance with the Council’s Statement of Community Involvement. Representations may only be made in relation to these Modifications and not on any other aspects of the Plan or ‘omission sites’. The Local Plan Inspector will consider all of the representations about the proposed modifications, before finalising his report.

To assist the Inspector your representation should relate to soundness and legal compliance issues, i.e. that the Council has properly observed all legal and national planning policy requirements, and the relevant modification reference number should be identified. Please read the explanatory note before making your representation to help ensure it is duly made.

To assist the consultation process, public drop-in Events will be held on:

  • Thursday 15th March 2018 from 2pm to 6.30pm at the Committee Rooms, Council

Offices, Trinity Road, Cirencester.

  • Wednesday 21st March 2018 from 2pm to 6.30pm at Moreton Area Centre, High

Street, Moreton-in-Marsh

Further supporting evidence documents, are available to view on the Council’s website at and the Examination Website at

Please note that as this is a formal public consultation, there can be no flexibility in accepting any representations received after the deadline of 5pm on Wednesday 4th April 2018.
