Matson Progress

The diagram below shows the timeline of events since the project started in mid 2017:

November 2021 Update​

GCH and Gloucester City Council remain committed to building on the progress made over recent years.

We have been working hard to identify suitable land to kick-start the regeneration process, allowing us to build new modern well-designed homes for residents and regenerate the area.

We are not alone in finding that our regeneration plans are taking longer than we would like. But we continue to work together to find a way forward with our plans.

Above all, we remain committed to consulting the community. In November 2021 residents received a letter advising that we are still  looking at every option and whilst that work is on-going we can confirm that we have agreed to purchase the old pub site next to Matson shops, which currently has outline planning permission for 6 flats and 4 houses and which could help us start to regenerate this part of Matson.

We encourage residents to get in touch if they have any concerns, queries or questions.
