Consultation Core Strategy 2010

Directions for Stratford-on-Avon District

Stratford-on-Avon District Council is preparing a Local Development Plan to guide development and change in the area up to 2031. This will decide where new homes are built, where new jobs are created and how to improve services.

The Core Strategy is the first and most important part of the Development Plan. It will set the overall vision and a set of key objectives which we are striving to achieve. It will also establish where development should take place in the future and how this should be delivered.

  • A first draft of the Core Strategy was published in October 2008. Since that time a great deal of technical assessment has been carried out, including input from a wide range of agencies.
  • The Council also had to take into account the prospect of an additional amount of housing development as required at the time by the West Midlands Regional Spatial Strategy (now revoked by the Coalition Government).
  • As a result of this work, a second draft of the Core Strategy - Directions for Stratford-on-Avon District - was produced for consultation and comment between February and April 2010.
