THE FRONT PAGE OF KENILWORTH WEEKLY NEWS THIS WEEK

The front page headlines of this week’s Kenilworth Weekly News publicise changes ahead for the Club, with the impending Housing Development in the two fields surrounding the Ground following their initial report.

100 homes were originally designated in the Local Plan but 135 dwellings have now been submitted to Warwick District Council’s Planning Committee by the Planners and Developers for outline approval.

We have to accept that the Housing Development WILL happen soon but Health & Safety is paramount for all our new impending neighbours.

Housing Development Plans have been submitted by the Planners

Housing Development Plans submitted this week

To keep everyone updated, the Housing Development Plans for dwellings to be built on the two fields that surround our Ground have been formally submitted by the Planners to the Planning Authority.

The Club has formed a Housing Development Sub-Committee that has  met and  met with the Planners, Richborough Estates,  since our introductory meeting and  Presentation at the Club  to Members.

The Club wishes to assures the Membership it is working hard to protect the best interests of the Club and its Membership  over the proposed development and will continue to do so.

An article has been published in the Kenilworth Weekly News today (15th November) regarding the planning application being submitted which can be accessed via their website or on the link below:

It is a sad day for the Club but one we knew that was coming once the Local Plan was passed and published by the District Council, whose hands have also been tied by National Policies.

We, as a Club,  must work with the Planners to try to get the best out of a bad deal that will blight the Club’s aspect forever and try to remain positive. The Club will for its Membership and for those who use our fine facilities.

 

Down memory lane!
