Adoption of Warwick Local Plan Imminent
Warwick District Council has received news from the Government’s Planning Inspector that their Local Plan, which sets out the planning policies for the area for the next 12 years, provides an appropriate basis for the planning of the District, provided that a number of main modifications are made to it. It is anticipated that the Council will consider a report on 20th September with a recommendation that the Local Plan be adopted.
Once the Local Plan is adopted, the Council can progress with the delivery of the proposals set out in the document, with the aim of providing approximately 13,000 new homes in the district between 2017 and 2029, of which up to 5000 will be affordable. The Local Plan will also strengthen the local economy and will enable thousands of new jobs to be created with the allocation of around 135 hectares of land for employment
