The South Warwickshire Local Plan

Issues and Options Consultation

The Issues and Options Consultation and accompanying Call for Sites ran from 9 January to 6 March 2023. Comments made after this date will not be considered.

Consultation responses are currently being processed, and will be published in due course.

The consultation document contains a number of issues that the South Warwickshire Local Plan seeks to address. These issues have been identified using the responses to the 2021 Scoping and Call for Sites consultation and ongoing conversations with key stakeholders. The technical evidence has also been used to help inform the issues and the consultation document. In response to the issues identified, officers have formed various ‘options' to overcome these, and respondents were asked which options they thought were most appropriate.

The consultation document can be viewed on the South Warwickshire Local Plan website.


Stratford-on-Avon District Council and Warwick District Council are working together to prepare a new Local Plan for South Warwickshire. The Plan is expected to replace the strategic policies of the existing Stratford-on-Avon Core Strategy and Warwick Local Plan which both run to 2031. The South Warwickshire Local Plan will set out a long-term spatial strategy for housing, jobs, infrastructure and climate change for both Districts.

Both Councils are continuing to work on their other plans and policy documents. More information on these plans can be found on Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Council websites, respectively.
