South Warwickshire Local Plan

The South Warwickshire Local Plan

Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils are working together to produce a new South Warwickshire Local Plan to cover our combined geographic area.

Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils have recently undertaken an Issues and Options Consultation and Call for Sites. Responses and submissions are available to view on the Issues and Options and Call for Sites pages respectively. The consultation statement is also now available to view. The Issues and Options consultation provided a second opportunity for residents and stakeholders to have their say on the emerging Local Plan and included different options for selecting preferences to several planning policy issues and the policy options to address them. It also set out broad options for consideration on where to best accommodate new development in the future.

Working Together

The Plan is expected to replace the strategic policies of the existing Stratford-on-Avon Core Strategy and Warwick Local Plan which are soon due for review. The South Warwickshire Local Plan will set out a long-term spatial strategy for housing, jobs, infrastructure and climate change for both Districts.

Both Councils are continuing to work on their other plans and policy documents.

Whilst 'South Warwickshire' is a new concept we believe there is a lot of merit in creating a plan that covers both Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick Districts. Aside from the common history of being within Warwickshire, Stratford-on-Avon District and Warwick District have similar economies, demographics and face common challenges.
