Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils are considering a proposal to merge, creating a new District Council covering the whole of South Warwickshire (the areas currently covered by Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils).
The public consultation on the plans to create a South Warwickshire Council starts this week on Monday 6 September and runs until Sunday 24 October.
The consultation document and online questionnaire can be viewed and completed at: www.southwarwickshire.org.uk
The technical evidence below provides context for our planning policies in relation to flood risk and the water environment. These documents should be read in the context of the Development Requirements SPD and the Core Strategy, particularly Policy CS.4 (Water Environment and Flood Risk). Links to technical evidence on related issues are included in the "Find Out More" section below.
A Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) was created in 2019 with the purpose of supporting the production of the Submission Version of the District Council's Site Allocations Plan (SAP). This version of the Plan is now not being proceeded with, and a new version of the SFRA will accompany the new Preferred Options version of the Site Allocations Plan when this is published for consultation in autumn 2020.
The 2013 SFRA was jointly commissioned by Stratford District Council, North Warwickshire and Rugby Borough Councils, and Warwickshire County Council. The document and maps can be accessed via Rugby Borough Council's website. See the following appendices:
