Traffic Calming Consultation

In recent months Gloucestershire County Council have indicated that if we can show strong public support they will consider the installation of physical traffic calming measures. To demonstrate the community views (either for or against), we need to get a response from at least 20% of those on the electoral roll. Please take part in this important consultation: Would you support the installation of physical traffic calming measures (e.g. speed cushions, speed tables, pedestrian islands) in the 20mph zone along the A46 and B4073?

Stroud District Council Planning - Public Access online system

Stroud District Council Planning - Public Access online system

Painswick Parish Council wishes to make residents aware that the Stroud District Council's Planning Online Service is suffering from intermittent issues. Problems started in October, when the District Council introduced a new planning portal and issues occured when trying to access some of the documentation for plans. The District Council have stated that an update to the new system is being tested but can't yet provide a date for when the issues will be fully resolved. More »

The Parish Council wishes to apologise as there has been several instances where the Planning Committee, have been unable to undertake their statutory function as a Planning Consultee adequately, due to the unavailability of planning documentation. However, the Parish Council is working with Stroud District Council to minimise the disruption.

Please note that as written notices are no longer issued to neighbouring properties, we advise residents to register with the public access scheme (despite the issues) so that they be made aware of any developments proposed in their area.


For the latest advice from the Director of Development Services at the District Council, please see the link https://eur02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.stroud.gov.uk%2Fenvironment%2Fplanning-and-building-control%2Fsearch-planning-applications&data=02%7C01%7C%7C1d05901260214d695cf608d56d825208%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaa%7C1%7C0%7C636535328843820055&sdata=2OFGSVV1whsPRTtL6%2FWxg2xsPz%2BZ7I5XLj8giX3gkio%3D&reserved=0 » Less
