  • New Local Plan:  warwickdc.gov.uk/newlocalplan. This is the page that provides information on the latest situation with the Local Plan as a whole.  From here you can link to modifications consultation page, the examination pages and the evidence base page.

This page provides links to a whole range of studies and documents which have been used to underpin the Plan submitted in 2015 and the modifications now under consideration. There are three documents within this that I specifically referred to:
