Call for sites 2020

Local Plan Call for Sites (July 2020)

In May we informed stakeholders that we had commenced the preparation of our Local Plan 2020 and that we would be undertaking a ‘call for sites’ in the coming months.

One of the key aims of the 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 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 Local Plan 2020.

The ‘call for sites’ is open and runs from 7 July 2020 to 20 October 2020.

Information on the process for submitting sites, including a downloadable call for sites submission form, as well as the status of sites which have been submitted through previous calls for sites can be found in our FAQs below.

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.
