2010 Revision
 

1.5. The economic slump and other factors have led to questions as to whether it is possible to effectively deliver the North Place and Portland Street Development Brief - a Technical Appendix to this SPD adopted as part of it in July 2008. This is a conclusion which has been reached by the Cheltenham Development Task Force which was set up by the Council and its partners to drive forward the Civic Pride programme and bring key regeneration sites forward for Cheltenham.

1.6. While there is a commitment to retain the principles embodied within the 2008 document the fixed interpretation - particularly the range of uses - needs to be made more flexible in the light of changing circumstances.

1.7. In order to incorporate the changes into the statutory planning framework, this Cheltenham Civic Pride Urban Design Framework SPD and its Technical Appendix - North Place and Portland Street Development Brief are being amended and readopted. They are being put through the adoption process jointly.

1.8. The draft revisions were approved for consultation by Cheltenham Borough Council Cabinet on 27th July 2010.

1.9. Comments on 2010 revisions to this SPD document will only be accepted in respect of changes made in the following schedule.
