South Warwickshire Local Plan – Issues and Options Consultation
Residents, businesses and other stakeholders are invited to have their say on the next stage of the new South Warwickshire Local Plan, which will cover the combined geographic area of both Councils for the next 25 years.
Once adopted the Plan will set out how both Councils ensure delivery of the infrastructure, open spaces, employment sites and homes meet our needs up to 2050. The plan will be the basis upon which all planning applications will be determined in a way that supports those needs and how we address the pressing issues around climate change, biodiversity, connectivity, and resident wellbeing.
The ‘Issues and Options’ Consultation which runs from 9 January to 6 March 2023, focuses specifically on the options for how and where development should take place. This is a critical phase of the plan making process.
Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Place and Economy, Councillor John Cooke commented:
“This is another crucial step in the development of our combined Local Plan, which will determine where we should locate the homes and employment land that we need in the coming decades and ensure that this development happens in the most sustainable locations – places that work best for people, for businesses and for the environment. The ‘Issues and Options’ consultation will give local people the opportunity to look in more detail at the topic areas identified and responses received to date, get an overview of the key development issues faced in South Warwickshire and examine the evidence received during the process from experts and specialists and through in-house research.”
