Warwickshire County Council push for higher Borough Plan target

The public inquiry into the Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Plan starts with 3 days of hearings on 30th August 2017. I have obtained a copy of the county council response to the Borough Plan produced for it by Amec Foster Wheeler in order to promote housing on WCC owned Top Farm.  It also includes may general comments on the plan.

What is most shocking in the response is the county council trying to push the housing target up to 15,064 homes. We already have no way to get the infrastructure needed for the existing target.


There is lots to worry about in the response from County council, including their desire to oppose reasonable requirements over sustainable design and consultation. Other parts of Warwickshire will have more sustainable homes than in Nuneaton & Bedworth. How can that be fair.

And Warwickshire County council want Nuneaton to be built right up to A5. They do not think we should even keep a strip of countryside or views of Mount Judd
