The public consultation on the revised Warwick District Council Local Plan is live, but you need to get your comments in by the deadline of 4.45pm on Friday 22 April 2016.
There is a lot to wade through, but the main changes affecting the south of the district are:
- the inclusion of 900 homes at The Asps site (including a park & ride),...
- 620 additional houses south of Harbury Lane (including former sewage works)
- 50 additional houses west of Europa Way, plus new school and other facilities
- East Whitnash/South of Sydenham contingency reservation of 500 homes
- Additional 75 homes off Golf Lane bridle path/behind Fieldgate Lane development
- 630 homes at Gallows Hill
- 30 homes at Seven Acre Close, Bishops Tachbrook
