PLANS to build 82 one and two-bedroom apartments for some of the district’s ‘key workers’ have been given the green light.

The Warwick House building, which is owned by Stratford Town Trust, is a former headquarters of Stratford District Council but has remained empty for some years.

In December last year, the Orbit Group housing association submitted plans to provide the apartments at the site on the Birmingham Road for ‘key workers’ such as teachers, NHS staff and others to privately rent.

The town council had raised concerns it was a ‘modest’ commitment to targeting key workers, but on Tuesday (June 16) members of Stratford District Council’s planning committee agreed to give the application the green light subject to a number of conditions.
