Settlement at Stratford-On-Avon given the go ahead

Outline planning permission has been granted by Warwickshire council for the largest scheme they are yet to consider, a 140-hedtare development.

The largest ever contemplated scheme by Stratford-On-Avon District Council have obtained a resolution which will enable them to grant online planning permission by Nexus Planning.

Included in the proposals on behalf of Commercial Estates Group (CEG) and the Bird Group are:

  • “a new settlement of up to 2,000 new homes (roughly 35% will be affordable)”
  • “a village centre with supermarket and retirement accommodation,”
  • “a new primary school,”
  • “community hub, health centre,”
  • “sports and recreation facilities,”
  • “a 47-hectare managed ecological reserve.”

The site will be bordering the village “Lighthorne Heath”, which is near Gaydon. The 140-hectare site will be the first stage of a 300-hectare strategic allocation identified in the council’s emerging Core Strategy. This is allocated for the following:

  • “a development of 3000 new dwelling”
  • “100-hectares of land for the expansion of Jaguar Land Rover,”
  • “4.5-hectares of land for the expansion of Aston Martin Lagonda.”

The area proposed for the “Garden Village” is situated down the M40 corridor, which is inside a high value area due to automotive related research and development. Jaguar, Land Rover and Aston Martin Lagonda have roughly 7000 employed staff members in their research and production facilities, which happens to be directly next to the proposed site.
