What is planned?

Area Covered: The South Warwickshire Local Plan (SWLP) covers the administrative
areas of Stratford-on-Avon District Council and Warwick District Council.

January – 6 March 2023
Area Covered: The South Warwickshire Local Plan (SWLP) covers the administrative
areas of Stratford-on-Avon District Council and Warwick District Council.
Subject Matter: Stratford-on- Avon and Warwick District Councils have chosen to
work together to produce a new, joint Local Plan. The SWLP will be a Development
Plan Document that will set out the planning policies that the Councils will use to
assess applications for development, as well as identifying sites to meet our future
development needs, including those in relation to housing, jobs, infrastructure and
open space. The Plan will also address the important issues of climate change, design,
wellbeing, connectivity and biodiversity.
The two councils have prepared an Issues and Options Consultation which is the
second stage in the preparation of this new Local Plan. The consultation follows on
from the Scoping and Call for Sites consultation that took place in May 2021, and
seeks to address some of the issues raised. The Issues and Options consultation
document presents a number of options to various planning policy issues and seeks
views on which option is the most appropriate for South Warwickshire.
Alongside the Issues and Options Consultation, the two Councils are also running a
second ‘Call for Sites’ exercise inviting suggestions for potential sites to be allocated
for a variety of land uses, particularly those which align with the contents of the
consultation document.
In accordance with the relevant regulations this document is now subject to a period
of public consultation for eight weeks, running from Monday 9 January to Monday
6 March 2023. Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils are inviting
representations on this consultation document and its supporting evidence.
How to view and comment: The best way to view the consultation document,
associated evidence and to have your say is online at http://www.southwarwickshire. This webpage also includes short videos explaining in
