Regeneration of Matson & Podsmead

In March 2017 we secured funding of £1.25m from the Government’s Estates Regeneration Fund. This was to create a master plan for the regeneration of the Matson and Podsmead estates.

We are 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.

There is also a Facebook group where updates are posted and residents can have their say.

In March 2017 Gloucester City Homes secured funding of £1.25m from the Government’s Estates Regeneration Fund. This allowed us to consult with both communities, partners and create initial master plans for the regeneration of the Matson and Podsmead estates.

The funding has been used to develop proposals to progressively regenerate these estates, with the aim of:

Providing additional new homes and facilities, designing places where people want to live and visit, supporting a thriving community and improving the quality of life for all residents.

Gloucester City Council, through its new City Plan 2016-2031 has made the renewal of Matson and Podsmead a priority. The first step of the process has been to produce Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) and indicative master plans for each neighbourhood. These SPDs will be used as a guide to development in Matson and Podsmead over the next 15 – 20 years and the master plans, GCH are working on, will provide a basis for any planning applications.
