RBC Local Plan Consultation

Residents should be aware that Rugby Borough Council has recently published its draft local plan for consultation.

The full plan can be found here: https://www.rugby.gov.uk/directory_record/935/local_plan

The draft local plan contains a number of proposals that could affect residents of Binley Woods, including:

  1. 100 new houses to be built in Binley Woods on Green Belt land on the edge of the current built-up area within the next five years
  2. A new village of 1500 houses to be built to the north of us – an area immediately to the north of the Coombe Abbey lake bordering the A46
  3. Development of ‘brown field sites’ for housing that could include the speedway site

The Parish Council has arranged a public meeting where residents can hear details of the RBC plans from planning officers, ask questions and make your views known.

The meeting will be held on Friday, 12th February 2016 at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. All residents are encouraged to attend.

Further details of the meeting can be found here: Consultation Meeting

  1. Where is the greenbelt land that the 100 houses are planned for?
    Is it the farmers fields that are planned for development at the back of Rugby Road? Please could someone let me know; this is very concerning!

  2. Come along to the public meeting and find out!

  3. Ok I myself attended the meeting at the village hall which was a waste of time as nobody really wanted to confirm/deny anything, I’m sure the parish council are aware of the plans and should be straight and let everyone know! I think the resident of rugby road will be fine, the field at the end of Birchwood is where all the houses will be built, turning Birchwood road into a main road!
