Neighbourhood Watch Review

Tewkesbury Borough Plan - My mistake!

The original caption on the plan of the Tewkesbury Plan housing allocation for Maisemore was incorrect.  The plan does NOT include the 'restored landscape area' of the Rectory Farm site within the village boundary.

This has now been corrected.

Have your say on Tewkesbury's Plan

Tewkesbury Borough Council wants to hear from the public about a crucial planning document - the Pre-submission Tewkesbury Borough Plan - before submitting it to the Government for independent examination.

The Plan provides detailed and locally-specific planning policies on issues in Tewkesbury Borough, such as housing, employment, retail, the urban and natural environment and transport. It also includes smaller-scale sites allocated for housing and employment development.
The housing allocation map for Maisemore shows the Bell House Farm site as an allocation and the Rectory Farm site as having planning permission.  The settlement boundary has been drawn in accordance with the Parish Council's submission. 

The plan feeds directly in to the Joint Core Strategy - the over-arching strategic planning document for Gloucester City, Cheltenham Borough and Tewkesbury Borough which sets out how much growth needs to be accommodated in the three areas and the broad strategy for how that growth will be delivered. 
The consultation will run for just over six weeks until  5pm on Monday, 18 November - any comments received after the deadline cannot be accepted.

To read more about the plan, the consultation process and to make comments, visit 

The plan is also available to view at the Public Services Centre on Gloucester Road in Tewkesbury, or at libraries and advice centres throughout Tewkesbury Borough.

Death of Brian Knowles

It is with great sadness that Maisemore Parish Council announces the sudden death of Brian Knowles over the weekend. 

Brian and his wife, Jocelyn, who died a few years ago, enjoyed a long retirement in Maisemore at their house in Church Rise - nearly 25 years. 

Besides being Parish Clerk for a period, Brian organised The Grapevine, our newsletter, for many years only recently giving up its editorial. 

He will be sadly missed.
