Kingswood is a modern community on the northern edge of the city. Work to provide new housing, retail, leisure and employment facilities started in the 1990s and Kingswood continues to thrive and grow today. So far over 3,600 new homes have been built and land is available at Kingswood for approximately 3,100 more homes.
The Kingswood area action plan provides the vision and planning framework of this area of major change for the next 15 years. The plan was adopted on Thursday 15 September 2016 after an independent examination which took place in spring 2016. You can view the inspector’s report (and appendix) below.
The adopted plan contains policies and their justification, and should be read in conjunction with the Policies Map, which shows the different land uses and designations in the action plan area.
A sustainability appraisal of the plan has been carried out. The appraisal dated May 2015 is the version of the plan submitted to the Secretary of State in November 2015 and the addendum is an appraisal of the final plan which takes into account the modifications brought by the examination of the plan in spring 2016.
