Culm Garden Village
Culm Garden Village is one of only 14 areas awarded Garden Village Status by the Government in January 2017. Located to the east of Cullompton, the Garden Village has the potential to deliver up to 5,000 sustainable new homes in a country park landscape, with jobs, community facilities and transport, all integrated with Cullompton itself.
Shapley Heath Garden Village (at Murrell Green) is one of only 19 successful bids to the Government’s Garden Communities programme in 2019 and will receive a proportion of £3million grant funding to help develop design and layout proposals.
The West of England Authorities including South Gloucestershire have all withdrawn the West of England Joint Strategic Plan from Examination. The JSP process will be started again and once adopted, a Local Plan specific to South Gloucestershire will be prepared. The removal of the site from the Green Belt site and its allocation for development will be promoted through this process.
Located on the A120 between Braintree and Colchester, Monks Wood comprises over 2000 acres in a single ownership providing the opportunity for the delivery of in excess of 5000 homes, primary and secondary schools, community facilities, and public open space.
Sandridgebury Farm is located to the north of the city of St Albans and presents a competitive strategic opportunity between the urban edge of St Albans and Heartwood Forest. It will be promoted through the Local Plan Review which is likely to be restarted as a result of serious legal compliance and soundness concerns with the current draft Local Plan.
