Proposed Waiting Restrictions in Kemble

At the Parish Council meeting of August 23, 2021 it was resolved that the Parish Council would seek to delay the implementation and ask GCC to consider a phased approach. If this were not possible it would request that GCC revert to the drawings provided January 2021 with the omission of Old Manor Gardens and Clayfurlong Grove.

Following the meeting, GCC were contacted regarding the above but advised that they were unable to delay having already arranged an advertisement in the local newspaper for 26th August and would be going forward with the Public Consultation. As such, you may now have seen the details advertised by GCC.

A copy of the 2017 Order, the draft Variation Order and the consultation plans together with a copy of the Statement of Reasons, may be viewed at or . Reference CB73299.

Any objections or representations in respect of the above should be sent in writing addressed to the Assistant Director of Legal Services, Shire Hall, Westgate Street, Gloucester, GL1 2TG or emailed to (please quote reference CB73299) no later than the 17th September 2021.

Any comments that you make concerning this proposal cannot be treated as confidential. For further details about how GCC deal with your comments and personal details can be found at
