BEAUDESERT & HENLEY IN ARDEN & THE SOUTH WARWICKSHIRE LOCAL PLAN
Beaudesert & Henley in Arden, nestled in a valley; a wonderful mix of history and culture; home to around 3,500 folks, a settlement that dates back to the Norman Conquest. Little change has occurred here in 800 years, expansion restrained by its topography and boundaries formed by a railway track to the west and a river to the east. Surrounded by a green belt supporting delightful walks and vistas.
Do we hear the rumble of earth diggers approaching these hitherto eye-watering pasturelands and woodland?
No, not yet, and not until the people of Henley have control over what and where ANY development will take place!
So how does the settlement plan to protect itself against unwanted and errant development from outside?
Led by the JPC, and more specifically, a team of dedicated members within the Council, supported by an NDP Consultant, with over sixty successful NDPs in his portfolio, at no cost to the community thanks to government grants the JPC have secured, this opening page in our future as a free-standing settlement, is where it will begin and end. The JPC will drop letters through your door, will deliver newsletters with the Focus, will seek publicity in the local press, will nail notices up in notice boards around the town, will organise public open consultancy meetings, will encourage rhetoric from all that want to be heard and will submit the collective opinions of all in the response to the SDC-WDC Cabinet questionnaire on or before the 6th of March next.
Please make a note of this page on your PCs and phones and VISIT IT REGULARLY, your comments count!
The JPC will publish your words as a component part of a dossier they are building, supporting their right to have a say in this process. Updates will be delivered on this page along with links to relevant websites and platforms – see below.
