Regeneration of Matson and Podsmead

In March 2017 we secured funding of £1.25m from the Governments newly established Estates Regeneration bid to create a master plan for the regeneration of the Matson and Podsmead estates.

Working with Matson and Podsmead residents, local agencies, Gloucester City Council and a range of partners, we will use the funding to develop proposals to progressively regenerate our two largest estates. This is with an ambition to provide a longer term offer of new homes, additional investment and designing places where people want to live, supporting a thriving community and improving the quality of life for residents.

Help Shape The Future of Matson and Podsmead LogoGloucester City Council, through its current City Plan has made the renewal of Matson and Podsmead one of its priorities. Working with us the first step of the process is to produce a plan for each area. The plan will identify the future layout of the neighbourhoods showing existing and proposed housing, streets, open spaces and public buildings. It is a detailed document that gives a long-range view to guide development over the next 15 – 20 years.

Community Design Workshops – November

We have just completed the second stage of community consultation with early design workshop events.
