The Council is advertising a contract for the provision of improvement works to the M5 Junction 10. The planned commencement date is July 2022 and the planned completion date is November 2025. Gloucestershire faces significant challenges to achieve its vision for economic growth. A Joint Core Strategy (JCS) - a partnership between Gloucester City Council, Cheltenham Borough Council and Tewkesbury Borough Council was formed to produce a co-ordinated strategic development plan to show how the region will develop during the period up to 2031. This includes a shared spatial vision targeting 35,175 new homes and 39,500 new jobs by 2031. Major development of new housing (c.9,000 homes) and employment land (c.100ha) is proposed in strategic and safeguarded allocations in the West and North West of Cheltenham, much of which lies within Tewkesbury Borough Council. This, in turn, is linked to wider economic investment, including a government supported and nationally significant Cyber Park adjacent to GCHQ, predicted to generate c.7,000 jobs. The M5 J10 improvement scheme (Scheme or Project) is critical to achieving the vision set out above. The Scheme was also identified by Highways England in the Birmingham to Exeter Route Strategy as being critical to: (a) maintaining the safe and efficient operation of the M5 corridor; and (b) enabling the planned development and economic growth around Cheltenham, Gloucester and Tewkesbury. A Business Case for the Scheme was submitted in March 2019 to the Housing Infrastructure Fund, wherein the investment case was made. Funding was awarded successfully by HIF in March 2020.
