A Genuinely Sustainable Neighbourhood in Cheltenham


Welcome to our updated website about Elms Park, a new, genuinely sustainable neighbourhood which will deliver a thriving community and become a distinctive gateway to Cheltenham. 

Here you will find everything you need to know about the plans for Elms Park at Northwest Cheltenham, a mixed-use development located on land north of Tewkesbury Road (A4019) between the Kingsditch Trading Estate and Uckington.

As a result of refinements to the proposals following ongoing discussions with local stakeholders, as well as responding to changes in regulations since the outline planning permission was submitted, the Consortium (Persimmon Homes and Bloor Homes) has submitted an addendum report and supporting documents to the relevant planning authorities.

The core elements of the Elms Park application remain unchanged; the Consortium is still proposing a new mixed-use development which will comprise 4,115 new homes, a modern 10-hectare business park, three new schools (one secondary and two primary), multiple upgrades to offsite cycling routes, extensive green infrastructure and a new transport hub with links into central Cheltenham and Tewkesbury. 

You can find out more about the minor changes covered in the addendum package of reports in the ‘Recent changes’ section of this site.
