What is the Neighbourhood Development Plan? “A neighbourhood development plan establishes general planning policies for the development and use of land in a neighbourhood, like:
- where new homes and offices should be built
- what they should look like
The plan can be detailed or general, depending what local people want. Neighbourhood plans allow local people to get the right type of development for their community, but the plans must still meet the needs of the wider area. In most cases we expect this will mean that neighbourhood plans will have to take into account the local council’s assessment of housing and other development needs in the area.”

Following the Examiner's Report, the NDP has now been amended and is now ready for Referendum. The final NDP is available here:
The submission version and subsequent Examiner's Report are available to view on the Neighbourhood Plan page.
The date of the referendum is yet to be confirmed by Warwick District Council, but is suggested this will be after Easter. The Parish Council will be organising a public meeting before Easter.
Examination of the NDP is now complete and the Examiner’s final report is available to review here:"The Council believes that it is crucial that it should continue to have a voice in this process and formal ratification of the NDP is therefore paramount, in order that the NDP can have formal standing under the Localism Act. Having a “made” NDP in place also has important implications in terms of future access to the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), which will henceforth apply to all new developments. "Acceptance of the Examiner’s recommended modifications is thus an essential precursor to the formal referendum, which we now expect to take place in mid-March. "The Council will issue an explanatory note and will hold a public meeting to explain the implications of the Final NDP, as well as the importance of the referendum and the CIL to our community. The public meeting will also provide an opportunity to discuss future traffic management through our parish. Further information on actual dates will follow in February."
