Call for sites 2020

Local Plan call for sites (March 2022 update)

This page displays the call for sites which have been submitted to the council since 2018 and also a Frequently Asked Questions document setting out what the call for sites is and is not.

As part of the Local Plan Phase 2 consultation we are currently accepting new and updated information on Call fir Sites. Please see a blank form below under the useful links below. We will be accepting Call for Sites forms until the 4 April 2022

During the Local Plan Phase 2 consultation we are also calling for sites which may be suitable for renewable energy. A Renewable Call for Sites form can be found under the useful links section below. Before submitting your site, please see the interactive maps below which indicates areas the council believe would be suitable for certain types of renewable energy generation based on our published evidence.

One of the key aims of the new Local Plan will be to allocate sites for the new homes, jobs, infrastructure, services and facilities that will be needed in South Gloucestershire.

The purpose of the ‘call for sites’ is to provide an opportunity for people to identify sites they think may have the potential for development (for housing and economic purposes) through the new Local Plan.

We have prepared some frequently asked questions (FAQs) to provide more information about what the ‘call for sites’ is, what it is not, and how it fits into the overall process of preparing the new Local Plan.

Please be aware that submission of a call for site and its display on the interactive map below does NOT infer that the council supports the site for allocation in its new Local Plan, or development through a planning application. Submitted sites will be subject to assessment and future consultation. 

There is also an updated online map which displays sites submitted during the 2018 and 2020 Call for Sites which can be found here.

If you have any questions about the Local Plan call for sites please contact us by email to and we will endeavour to respond in a timely manner.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
