Stratford District Council and Stratford Town Trust are hosting a Riverside Scheme exhibition at The Crowne Plaza Hotel on 15th October, 11am-7pm. The project was resubmitted for planning on 1st October following additional contamination and ground water testing at the site and the forthcoming exhibition provides an opportunity for local people to look at the plans in detail and find out more information.
As well as additional testing to meet the requirements of the Environment Agency and Environmental Health, the project team have been liaising with Natural England to progress the process of designating the area as a Local Nature Reserve.
Tony Perks, Deputy Chief Executive at Stratford District Council said: "As part of an ongoing consultation process, we hope as many people as possible will come along to the public exhibition so they can find out about the latest developments and talk to the project team directly."
If members of the public would like to ask questions relating to specific aspects of the scheme, they are invited to attend at the following times:
11.00-14.00 Project Management
12.00-15.00 Landscape Design
17.00-19.00 Project Management
The planning application can be found on the Stratford District Council's planning portal, ref: 21/03126/FUL
