Warwickshire County Council are seeking applications for a panel of citizens to be advisors and champions with a community perspective, working with WCC to improve health outcomes across Warwickshire. For more information click here.
Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils are working together to produce a new South Warwickshire Local Plan to cover the combined geographic area. The Plan will set out the planning policies that the Councils will use to assess applications for development, as well as identifying sites to meet future needs to support housing, jobs, infrastructure and open space. It will also address the important issues of climate change, wellbeing, connectivity and biodiversity.
A ‘Scoping’ and ‘Call for Sites’ consultation ran for 6 weeks in May and June 2021. A range of information relating to this consultation has been published on the South Warwickshire Local Plan website. There have been 555 sites submitted and all of these have now been mapped and are available to view on an interactive map. Guidance for how to use this map is available, along with a static pdf version of the map for those that prefer to view the sites in this format. For more information about the Local Plan process and to access the Call for Sites map please click here.

Click here to see the collection dates for waste and recycling over Christmas.
There will be no changes to the day that refuse and recycling collections take place; the teams will be working as normal on all bank holidays including Monday 27 & Tuesday 28 December 2021 and Monday 3 January 2022, so residents are advised to present their bins, boxes or bags at the roadside as normal by 7am on the day of their collection.
To ensure that the teams can deal with the increased recycling generated at this time of year, there will be no green bin collections from Monday 27 December 2021 to Friday 7 January 2022 inclusive.
Green bin collections will resume from Monday 10 January 2022. During this time, food waste can be placed in the grey bin. If residents wish to continue putting their food waste in the green bin, the advice is to wrap it in newspaper or use compostable caddy liners.
Any extra recycling that doesn’t fit in to the boxes or bags can be put in a sturdy bag or small box and placed next to the boxes and bags on the day of each collection; each material must be in its own separate container (e.g., paper in one container, tins/cans in another). Any extra cardboard must be cut down and flattened to no more than 1m x 1m.
If residents have bought real Christmas trees this year, these can be recycled in one of two ways:
1. In the green bin as long as it has been cut into pieces; these will be collected on the next collection date from Monday 10 January 2022. Or better still;
2. The Council are also supporting two local charities this year, The Myton Hospices and Pass the Smile, who offer a real Christmas tree collection and recycling service from the doorstep for a small donation. Volunteers will be out collecting and recycling real Christmas trees between 8 – 10 January 2022 and collections can be booked at www.charityxmastreecollection.com
