RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
We’re always looking for ways to partner with other organisations and combined forces on research. This can be really local or County-wide, and we have already teamed up with GCC, Stroud District Council and University of Gloucestershire to get engaged with our communities.
We are very keen to work with local groups involved in access and inclusion in your local area. GCRP is linked into Inclusion Gloucestershire and is taking part in the Better Links to Transport initiative. If any local organisation would kuke us to support a local access initiative or study, please get in touch
HAVING A VOICE IN THE TOWN PLANNING PROCESS
GCRP is always looking forward, and with major new development taking place in the county, influencing the planning process is an important priority for us.
Making sure that travelling by train is an option always considered within big planning decisions, as well as ensuring sustainable transport options are provided right from the start of any new development proposal.
We have set out a Development Prospectus, which explains to developers, consultants, local authorities and operators, how we would like to engage in the development planning process.
This covers Local Development Frameworks, Neighbourhood Plans, masterplans and individual planning applications, and sets out how we will provide independent evidence and professional input into the process.
We have a lot of ideas in the pipeline which we will be sharing in our plan once complete. In the meantime, we are always eager to hear of new possible project ideas, so do please get in touch if you would like to discuss any ideas you may have.
