Matson, Robinswood and White City Community Economic Plan backed by Bishop

A community economic strategy for Matson, Robinswood and White City was launched at Gloucester Services, with the Bishop of Gloucester, the Right Rev Rachel Treweek, praising the plan's co-operative approach.

The ‘Power of 3’ plan is the result of a major consultation in the local communities involving community organisations and residents, and highlights the following issues:

  • The area’s reputation
  • Local leadership
  • Childcare and education provision
  • Improving local transport
  • Linking housing development to local needs and employment opportunities

Now the priorities are agreed, the next step is to build new strategic partnerships and find solutions to the issues raised.

Growing Project at Gloucester Services

The Growing Communities Project at Gloucester Services Northbound will soon have an interpretation panel so the motorway services customers can understand a little more about the unique charitable partnership between the Services and Gloucestershire Gateway Trust.

This Gloucestershire Gateway Trust project is creating a productive landscape, planted and maintained by local residents on Gloucester Services site, providing opportunities for local residents of all ages to visit, have fun and gain work skills while learning more about wildlife, our local landscapes and growing food.
