Cinderford Northern Quarter Area Action Plan (CNQAAP)

Area Action Plans set out planning policies and masterplans to show how areas will be regenerated.

This includes areas where opportunities to improve the area need to be balanced with concerns about the environment and history. The plans make sure that development is the best scale, mix and quality for the area.

What is the Cinderford Northern Quarter Area Action Plan?

The Cinderford Regeneration Board started working on an Area Action Plan for Cinderford's Northern Quarter in 2008. The plan was adopted by the District Council on 23 February 2012.

It now provides the structure for regeneration so it can improve the area for residents and business, and attract investment.

The AAP was subject to a legal challenge in May 2013. The challenge was successfully defended by the District Council. A copy of the judgement is available to download in the documents list below.
