Blockley Conservation Area Review
Blockley Parish Council has commissioned from RPS – one of Europe’s leading environmental consultancies – an independent review of the Blockley Conservation Area. This is part of the Parish Council’s initiatives designed to help protect vulnerable sites from unwelcome development. This comprehensive review has now been completed and sent to Cotswold District Council for their consideration. The Parish Council’s aim is to get CDC’s agreement to the recommendations regarding revised Conservation Area boundaries, as a matter of priority. The review forms part of the evidence that BPC will be submitting to the District Council concerning its development strategy.
The review comprises a ranging survey looking at historical and cartographical evidence, and a site survey of the existing Conservation Area and its setting. A summary of the results of these surveys is attached as annexes to the report, and reference to these explains the reasons behind the proposed boundary changes.
The review is available to read on the Parish Council website

“Update on CDC Local Plan Documents
The Parish Council has received a hard copy of CDC’s Evidence Paper on Housing and Employment Site Allocations. This Paper, and its Appendices, are now available on-line, and will be considered by the CDC Cabinet on 4th December. The recommendations in this Paper have been used by CDC to inform the Local Plan Development Strategy and Site Allocations document that will be out for public consultation for 6 weeks during January / February 2015.
An initial skim of the Evidence Paper reveals three “preferred sites for housing development” in Blockley:
1. Little Shoe Broad (BK5) : 22 dwellings.
2. Sheafhouse Farm (BK8): 13 dwellings, and -
3. Station Road (BK14A), opposite the allotments site : 16 dwellings.
Total: 51 dwellings.
The allotments site (BK11) is shown as a “reserve site” with a potential for 36 dwellings. CDC has shown it as a reserve site because it meets all the criteria necessary for designation as a Local Green Space, (following the application made by the Parish Council) so the site is now continuing through the Local Plan designation process, apparently.
Further updates to follow, but BPC wants to make this initial information available to Blockley residents as soon as possible. “
