Public inquiry into plans for homes in Bishops Itchington

Stratford Editorial 19th May, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A PUBLIC inquiry into plans to build up to 84 homes in Bishop’s Itchington begins next week.

It follows an appeal by Gladman Developments Ltd against Stratford District Council’s decision to reject its proposals for the homes on land at Knightcote Road.

The plans were refused by council officers under delegated powers at the end of July and the appeal was originally set to heard at an informal hearing in January but it was subsequently decided it would follow the public inquiry procedure.

Proceedings get under way from 10am on Tuesday (May 24) at Stratford Town Hall in Sheep Street and the inquiry is expected to last three days.

The public can attend inquiry and voice their opinions at the discretion of the government planning inspector, who will then decide whether to accept or reject the appeal.
