Shrub Hill Quarter Draft Supplementary Planning Document
On 29 January, the Council’s Place and Economic Development Committee approved a draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for public consultation.
The City Centre Master Plan and the South Worcestershire Development Plan have designated Shrub Hill as an Opportunity Zone for new mixed employment and residential development. Worcester City Council and Worcestershire County Council - which is now the owner of the Shrub Hill Industrial Estate - are working collaboratively to plan for the regeneration of this area, building on its heritage, natural assets and rail connections. We will be working with key landowners and occupiers and stakeholders to shape its future.
The draft SPD sets out a framework for future planning and investment decisions in more detail than the Development Plan and suggests how development when it comes forward should take place in several Character Areas within the Quarter.
Closing date: 15 March 2024
Community Infrastructure Charging Levy consultation
The draft updated Community Infrastructure Charging Levy document for the three south Worcestershire councils (Malvern Hills, Worcester City and Wychavon) sets out details of contributions towards the funding required to deliver the joint South Worcestershire Development Plan (SWDP), adopted in 2016.
A public consultation on the proposals in this document is being held between midday on 12 February 2024 and midday on 25 March 2024.
Interested are invited to read the documents and submit their responses to it in this consultation.
