Welcome to Finham Residents Association
The Kelly Plan Print E-mail

There seems to be a concerted push by Lynette Kelly to convince Warwick District Council to change their local plan (consultation now complete) to include 5,000 homes on Kings Hill.  There is even a website set up to gain support (The Kelly Plan).

This seems to be a cynical, politically motivated attempt to gain support for destroying Greenbelt around Coventry, with other plans afoot to build on Keresley Greenbelt too.

Coventry City Council will be publishing their new Local Plan in  September 2014.  We need your support to help save the Greenbelt and King Hill

Warwick District Council New Local Plan Print E-mail

Consultation to Warwickshire District Council New Local Plan comes to an end on 27th June. You can find al the details HERE.  There is also access to the plan in the Finham Library.

While the plan seems not to include Kings Hill, (see the map attached to this article), the news that Coventry City Council would sell their 190 acres on Kings Hill for development of up to 5,000 home would seem to suggest that it could be included in the plan even at this late stage.

At this stage, gather further information and talk to other residents.  At the moment, think in terms of getting ready to put in your individual return to the WDC proposals and give your views on the possible building on Kings Hill.

Think also how you can help with a campaign against the development of King's Hill should it be proposed.

Above all, make sure you register your opinion on potential development on Kings Hill.

Kings Hill Land for Sale Print E-mail

A 196-acre plot of land owned by Coventry City Council could be sold to make way for-up to 5,000 new homes between Coventry and Kenilworth.
Land at King's Hill, near Warwick University, has been offered to Warwick District Council as a potential development site.
The plot lies within Warwickshire's boundary and contains a large expanse - of green belt land.
A letter was sent to Warwick District Council this week confirming that Coventry City Council would not object to the sale of the land.
The news will come as a blow to hundreds of Finham residents who had previously campaigned against development on the land as it would erode the countryside between Coventry and Kenilworth.  Coventry Evening Telegraph Article

Merger of Maidavale & Phoenix Family Care Print E-mail

It is proposed that the Maidavale GP practice is merged with Phoenix Family Care. Dr Jagadeshwari will retire in the Autumn. The premises in Maidavale Crescent will for a short time become a branch of Phoenix Family Care. Patients have the choice of looking for another practice (there are two other practices within half a mile) or be automatically transferred to Phoenic Family Care which is some distance away without public transport links,

A45 Improvements Print E-mail

The Highways Authority have issued the revised plan of improvements to be made.

The HA appear to have listened to the comments raised by the FRA and others at the enquiry held in 2010. The changes are not significant but will make a difference. This does not affect the A45/Leamington Rd roundabout, which is included in the Gateway proposals. The details of the improvements can be seen HERE
