Have a say in the future of your community!

The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group are conducting a survey to collect your views about the future of our parish.

South Gloucestershire Council will soon be publicising how many new homes will be allocated to Pucklechurch and Shortwood. Your views will shape the planning policies in the Pucklechurch Parish Neighbourhood Plan that will help guide what gets built and where. It is vital to get a large proportion of parish residents to take the survey.
