Housing Development update

Not this month!

 

I have checked the Warwick District Council’s Planning Committee website today (08.07.2019). The Agenda for next Tuesday’s meeting (16.07.2019) has now been published for planning applications.

Bovis’ two applications for the initial 7 dwellings (W/19/0322) and the Reserved Matters application for the overall development for up to 125 dwellings (W/19/0784) for our neighbouring fields are NOT on this month’s Agenda, so there will be no decision made.

The Club has submitted ‘neutral’ responses in respect of both applications but will be seeking specific conditions to be imposed on them, as we all accept that the fields will be developed for housing.

The next meeting of the Planning Committee is due to be held on Tuesday 13.08.2019.

I shall represent you and on the Club’s behalf at it, should I feel it is needed and will be of benefit to the Club so as to try to protect our interests for the future. Yet, it is still anticipated, that construction will commence in September.

I will also keep you all updated of matters regarding the Housing Development.

 

Andy Smith, Hon. Secretary.

 

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE TO PLAYERS REGARDING BALLS HIT FOR A SIX

NO ACCESS IS NOW PERMITTED INTO THE NEIGHBOURING FIELDS …… WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT

 

It will be noted and observed that Bovis Homes has recently erected heras fencing along the entirety of our boundaries with the fields which are subject of the forthcoming housing development that will commence in September.

The heras fencing panels have now been secured together with plates so that NO access can now be made into these fields from the cricket club for the recovery of any straying cricket balls that are hit into them.

Following a meeting with Bovis Homes on 21.06.2019 over these occasional occurrences (and when other matters were also discussed), they have declined to allow or grant us permission to enter and recover any such straying cricket balls from the fields, citing that sensitive ecological surveying work is now currently being undertaken by them and also for Health and Safety reasons.

 

As such, with IMMEDIATE EFFECT, NO ONE is now permitted to enter these fields  to recover such cricket balls. This is not negotiable.

 

This will undoubtedly cause major issues for the Club for the remainder of the 2019 season and for the sides playing at the Ground with the temporary loss of such balls, particularly on match days when games are taking place but this directive must be respected and adhered to, regardless of the fact that the ball stop netting has yet to be erected by Bovis Homes.

Latest update on the forthcoming Housing Development.

HOUSING TYPES & DESIGNS NOW PUBLISHED ON W.D.C. PLANNING PORTAL

 

The Warwick District Council Planning portal has been updated for the forthcoming Housing Development in the neighbouring fields that adjoin our Ground for the planning application for the approval of reserved matters (external appearance, landscaping, layout and scale) for the erection of 125 dwellings pursuant to outline planning permission.

It’s reference number is W/19/0784.

This planning application is the most detailed to date and can be accessed by clicking onto:  (** see bottom of article).

https://planningdocuments.warwickdc.gov.uk/online-applications/simpleSearchResults.do?action=firstPage

It shows the proposed design and types of the dwellings that Bovis Homes are applying for, as well as the proposed site layout of the Housing Development.

 

There are now 48 documents published on the Application under the ‘Document’ tab. They are well worth viewing, so you are kept abreast of Bovis’ intentions and designs, especially the overall layout, which can be found as a document at:

https://planningdocuments.warwickdc.gov.uk/online-applications/files/4D5C4F904F090E1B8C5BD18CB56FCFAB/pdf/W_19_0784-Boundary_Treatments_Plan.-1229872.pdf

 

There is no date yet for when the matter will be heard and considered by the Planning Committee. However, it is likely to be at June’s or July’s meeting.

Members will be kept informed of any further news of the Housing Development, as and when information is made available.

(** – there seems to be some issues with the above links working. They do one day, not the next! If that is the case when you try and the page says ‘Document Unavailable’ when the link takes you there, click onto the ‘search’ button above it and the type in ‘W/19/0784’ please or do a separate internet search for ‘Warwick District Council Planning’, then when the page pops up look for ‘simple search’ and type in ‘W/19/0784’ and submit to access the documents. Thanks).
