As you may or may not know, Stratford on Avon District Council is currently finalising its Proposed Submission Core Strategy, the plan which once adopted will manage future development in the District.
Before the remaining formal stages of the Core Strategy process can be undertaken, the District Council has decided to carry out a further period of consultation on a small number of specific but important matters which are:-
- changing the plan period to 2011-2031
- changing the housing requirement to 10,800 homes over this period: and
- various options for meeting the proposed increase in the housing requirement
At this stage the District Council is seeking views on the principles for each of these options and their impact rather than the detailed nature of specific development schemes and what they would compromise.
As this 6 week consultation falls short of our original community forum meeting on Wednesday 19th March, it has now been agreed via Cllr Stevens, the Chair of the Community Forum, that the next meeting will now take place on Wednesday 12th March, 6.30 pm at Dallas Burston Polo Ground.
