Housing Needs Survey - to complete or not to complete!


You will shortly receive a questionnaire as part of a "Housing Needs" survey being conducted by the Gloucestershire Rural Community Council (GRCC) who have stated that they are acting independently to identify the need for housing in Leonard Stanley. However, you need to be aware that this survey has been commissioned by a company called Terra Strategic which is a development organisation specialising in obtaining planning permissions for landowners (as did Gladmans in the case of Mankley Field). Once outline planning permission has been granted they receive their fee and hand over to another developer to obtain the detailed planning consent (known as "Reserved Matters") and actually build the houses. If the survey shows a "need" for housing, the initial applicant can sometimes use this as evidence to strengthen their case for obtaining the outline permission. Terra Strategic was behind the failed application for "Greenstiles" (refused by Stroud District Council and by a government inspector on appeal). Y ou may also wish to know that GRCC is funded by local authorities in Gloucestershire and their purpose is stated as follows: "GRCC is dedicated to enriching the lives of people living in Gloucestershire by supporting them through change and by enabling them to determine, shape and develop their own communities." Their current activity would appear to contradict these aims. GRCC's survey can only succeed and therefore be used by their "clients" if a sufficient proportion of residents in Leonard Stanley actually respond so please would you consider carefully what action you wish to take when the questionnaire arrives.

Note Leonard Stanley Parish Council has agreed to allow Martin Hutchings from GRCC to make a presentation at the September Parish Council meeting to be held on Tuesday 4th September, 7.30pm in Leonard Stanley Village Hall - Members of the Public are welcomed (encouraged to attend).
