Community plan

In December 2012 St Peter’s and The Moors was selected as one of the 150 Big Local areas in England to receive at least £1 million from the Local Trust over 10 years! Our two year plan for the area was accepted by the Local
Trust in December 2014. Our long term vision for St Peter’s and The Moors is to be: “An inspiring community of supportive neighbours” The changes we want to bring about to achieve this vision are:

  • enabling residents to be supportive neighbours;
  • helping residents to make ends meet;
  • making the area safer and cleaner; and
  • developing more things to do and places to go in our community.
  • A lot of people enjoy living in our area and there’s a strong sense of community. However, unlike other areas in Cheltenham where there are concentrations of people living on low incomes, our area has not previously benefited from regeneration funding. This is therefore a great opportunity for local residents to decide what changes would improve the area for the future and how we can make our area an even better place to live and work.
