Neighbourhood Plans Local Offers

Launched in October 2019, the Neighbourhood Plans Local Offers represent a five-year community investment plan for each area of Gloucester and were based on two years of consultation with our customers to identify their priorities.

The Covid pandemic in 2020 affected much of the work that GCH was able to complete and resulted in a worldwide shortage of materials and labour. In addition, the restrictions enforced during 2020 and 2021 meant that much of our work had to be carried out in a new way in order to keep everyone safe.  

In 2022, the Social Housing White Paper was launched and contained seven commitments that social housing tenants should be able to expect from their landlords. It makes sense in these circumstances to look at what we have been able to achieve and what we will continue to work on, in this, our final update of these five-year plans.

Updates are continually provided in all of our Tenant publications.
