To the east is Priors Norton and St Mary’s Church; to the west Cold Elm and Bishops Norton on the road to Wainlodes.

The Neighbourhood Development Plan was formally accepted by Tewkesbury Borough Council at their Executive meeting on the 16th of January.

It will now move on to a referendum in the three parishes and if it successful it will become part of the Borough Plan.

The final plan can be downloaded by clicking here . Shortly we will be publishing presentations, on this site, explaining the role of the NDP in the big scheme of things. We will also be holding open evenings to brief parishioners on its important role in the future of the parishes. Watch this site for dates and more information on the referendum.
