Bishops Cleeve, the largest village in Gloucestershire has for many years been developing hugely since 1930 and now with a population of 12,000 these two developments are going to give a lasting impact forever. But with the last two develments near completion (Homelands 1(near completion) & Deans Lea (completed)) it is very likely that the Highcourt who's decision it is to decide whether these two developments should go ahead is going to agree with the developers as Tewkesbury borough council are not meeting there construction targets. There are plans in these new developments for quite a few shops, workshops, large playing fields, sports facilities including a proposal for a ice rink, swimming centre or a bowling alley. This is definitely needed for the village of Bishops Cleeve and will boost the local economy. An extra 3000 people will be living in the village after the developments. Tewkesbury borough council are hoping the developments won't happen as well as Bishops Cleeve Parish council. Gotherington didn't even want the first homelands development to go ahead due to believing the traffic will be too much for Gotherington lane, there isn't any traffic now that homelands 1 is almost finished.
The developments include
- 1000 homes
- 5 - 10 shops
- Proposal for leisure centre
- New village hall
- Extension to original allotments
- Woodlands and orchards including Playing fields as well as many other facilities
