Tewkesbury Borough Council - Ashchurch Concept Master Plan
There was a public meeting on the 10th December organised by Ashchurch Rural Parish Council to provide information to the parish residents and to get feedback on views in order for ARPC to make an informed response to TBC regarding the plan. Annette Roberts, Head of Development Services, TBC, was in attendance. The full report on this Question & Answer session can be viewed here. Clearly the responses have been ignored and so far as it is possible to tell none of them have been published by either TBC or the JCS team. Despite the obvious flaws with siting such a development at this location an announcement has been made that this plan has now been approved by the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government.
