Planning consultations and news

This page carries a list of current consultations on key planning applications and strategic planning documents drafted by the Council and also any other useful planning news.


The Borough Council are now consulting on the Draft Submission Local Plan.  The consultation ran until 31st January 2018, but has now been extended until 16th March and will now include additional evidence based documents - please see below

Anyone that has already sent in representations to the consultation (and has given us their contact details) will be receiving a letter/email shortly with their unique reference number on asking if they want to amend/add to their submitted representations.

Everyone on our consultation database will also be receiving a letter shortly advising them of the extended consultation.

 All responses/comments must be made by this date as responses/comments received after this date will not be considered.

You can fill in a response form online or download one. Comments should be sent by email to or post to Forward Planning, North Warwickshire Borough Council, The Council House, South Street, Atherstone, Warwickshire, CV9 1DE

Further information, including the Evidence Base can be found on our Local Plan page

All information supplied will be made available for public inspection. The Council reserves the right not to publish or take into account any representations which it considers offensive or defamatory

At this stage you can only make comments on the “soundness” of the plan – to be sound a Local Plan should be positively prepared, JUSTIFIED, EFFECTIVE and CONSISTENT with National Policy

Positively prepared means that the document must

  • Seek to meet local needs for a range of uses including housing and businesses, which have been identified through the studies which make up the evidence base

JUSTIFIED means that document must be

  • Founded on a robust and credible evidence base

The most appropriate strategy when considered against the reasonable alternatives

EFFECTIVE means that the plan must be

  • Deliverable
  • Flexible
  • Able to be monitored

CONSISTENT with National Policy - the plan should enable the delivery of sustainable development in accordance with the policies in the Framework



Corrections for Policy LP39 - the Maps for Newton Regis, Shuttington, Warton and Wood End had the incorrect Policy numbers on them, these have now been corrected and can be seen below

The Forward Planning Team will be hosting a range of additional Drop in Sessions where you can pop along, view the new evidence/documents and ask them any questions you may have about the upcoming consultation
