The Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led planning document, overseen by the Town Council, which will have the ability to influence development in Leamington Spa over the next nine years. It is linked to and bound by the constraints of the Warwick District Council Local Plan.
The Plan has been independently examined by a planning inspector and, subject to some modifications, the inspector has recommended the Plan goes to referendum. Warwick District Council as the Local Planning Authority have agreed and the decision notice can be found here:
The post-examination version of the Plan is here: RLS NDP Post Examination Draft 19.05.20
The Policies Map to accompany this version is here: RLS Policies Map
No referendum can be held for the foreseeable future given the current public health situation so we are unfortunately unable to set a date as yet. As soon as restrictions are lifted and we are able to agree a date, we will publicise it widely across Leamington Spa. Anyone who is registered to vote in Leamington Spa will be able to vote in the referendum.
The Plan now carries significant weight in the consideration of all planning applications which come forward in Leamington Spa and is referred to as the "emerging" Neighbourhood Plan for Leamington.
Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to Leamington's Neighbourhood Plan in any way, small or large, over the last three and a half years.
