The West Midlands Green Belt wraps around Birmingham, the Black Country and Coventry and extends to a ring of towns beyond the conurbation. Within Stratford-on-Avon District it stretches from the northern edge of Stratford-upon-Avon, along the A46 westwards and the A439 eastwards up to the District boundary with Redditch (apart from small areas of land to the west of Mappleborough Green), Bromsgrove, Solihull and Warwick. The settlements of Alcester, Henley and Studley are excluded from the Green Belt. Our current policy framework for the Green Belt can be found in Policy CS.10 of our Core Strategy.
In 2016 a Sub-Regional Green Belt review was conducted to undertake a comprehensive assessment of Green Belt land.
