Core Strategy

The Long Marston Airfield site (Proposal LMA) was identified as a suitable and sustainable location for new development in the Stratford-on-Avon District Core Strategy. The Core Strategy was adopted by the Council on 11 July 2017 following an Examination in Public held by an Independent Planning Inspector who considered all of the evidence and arguments for and against Long Marston Airfield and concluded that the proposal and the Core Strategy as a whole was ‘sound' i.e. fit for purpose.

The Evidence Report prepared by SDC and WCC sets out the background to the Core Strategy examination.
