Council to report back on Local Plan


Published Wednesday, 15 March 2017


Coventry City Council is set to report back to local people about how it plans to respond to the inspector’s comments on the city's Local Plan.

Following seven months of hearings where local people also had the opportunity to make their points to the inspector, a number of changes have been suggested. These include a review of the drainage and flood risk policies, strengthening of the plans’ approach to infrastructure and a new master planning policy to steer major developments with the involvement of local communities.

New threat to Kings Hill 2 Print E-mail

On Friday the 30th October 2015 an article appeared in the Leamington Courier about plans to build possibly as many as 7000 homes in a new village on Kings Hill next to Finham. The following is a summary of the article.

It is reported that Warick District Council (WDC) has recently agreed to take Coventry's "shortfall" of 7008 homes into their original local plan for 12800 homes by 2029. The Government's planning inspector agreed in the last week of October to suspend the local plan while the Coventry surplus is added to WDC's total. This inspite of it being Green Belt land and strong opposition to the loss of open countryside within Warwickshire.

Kings Hill 2/Gibbet Hill/Finham Print E-mail

You need to be aware that the land marked for development by Warwick District Council no longer centres just on Kings Hill.  It now extends from Green Lane in the north to Stoneleigh Road in the South and from the railway line in the west to the A46 in the east.

The proposal appears to include Wainbody Wood but this does not necessarily mean that they will be able to remove the woodland, it is just showing the parcel of land under consideration.

The full details of the New Local Plan can be found on http://www.warwickdc.gov.uk/info/20410/new_local_plan
