Some of these projects include; the delivering of a packed summer of sporting events to celebrate the 2012 Olympic Games. Including, the Community it's a Knock Out events which took place across the City.
More than 400 people were involved and the events weren't just fun but also gave those who attended the chance to benefit from health advice.
More than £1 million of investment has been secured for Podsmead from the Big Lottery to help support initiatives and social enterprises in the area. And around £26,000 worth of grants were awarded to local charities to deliver Olympic legacy projects. These ranged from new sensory rooms, wheelchair basketball and first aid training.
Jennie Dallimore, Cabinet Member for communities and neighbourhoods, Gloucester City Council said: "As part of the City Vision we've already managed to achieve so much, including the projects above.
"We've also managed to adopt an Asset Based Community Development Approach for the City, making it the largest 'learning' site in the County. This is will mean working with individual communities to help deliver their needs, which is currently being piloted in Matson and Podsmead.
"The City Vision doesn't just focus on the people in the communities, but also looks at our economic growth. We've held a successful Night Market which celebrated the City's, music, dance and crafts and plans are underway for another before Christmas.
"And who can forget that we've signed an historic deal for Kings Quarter which will help regenerate the city centre.
"All this has been achieved in six months, so just think what can be achieved over the project in the next ten years."
