What is the Local Plan for North Warwickshire
Supplementary Planning Documents
Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) expand upon, and support, policies contained within the North Warwickshire Local Plan and forthcoming Core Strategy. These perform the same role as Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG), which remain relevant unless revised or replaced by a SPD. The content of SPDs and SPGs concentrate on detailed issues, and are a material consideration in determining planning applications.
Adopted Supplementary Planning Guidance:
- A Guide for the Design of Householder Developments (2003)
- A Guide for Shopfront Design (2003)
- A Guide for the Design of Lighting Schemes (2003)
- Supplementary Planning Guidance for Water Orton (2003)

The North Warwickshire Green Space Strategy
The Green Space Strategy 2008-2018 sets out a ten-year framework to enable the Council and its partners to work towards meeting the recommended standards of provision set out in the Open Spaces, Sport and Recreation Study, as outlined above.
Whilst the Study identified deficiencies in the quantity of open space provision in some specific areas of the Borough, the overall evidence is that there is sufficient green space in North Warwickshire, but that investment is necessary to improve its quality and accessibility. The policies set out in the North Warwickshire Green Space Strategy include both Borough-wide service improvements and area-specific priorities.
The Borough Council does not deliver green space alone - other organisations, particularly Town and Parish Councils, also make provision in their communities. The priorities in the Strategy reflect this, and are intended to enable the Council to help other organisations to meet the priorities identified for their sites.
