What We Do

The Planning Policy team is responsible for the policy framework that guides development in Stratford-on-Avon District. Our work includes:

  • Developing the Council's planning policies about the scale, type and location of development, protection of the environment and provision of infrastructure
  • Helping local communities to produce community-led plans (including neighbourhood plans, parish plans, and village design statements)
  • Monitoring housing, business, and commercial development within the District and the infrastructure required to support future development
  • Maintaining a sound evidence base to support future policies
