Redditch Editorial 21st Jan, 2020   0

A SIX-week public consultation has been launched by Stratford District Council into proposed changes to green its planning regulations.

The aim is to ensure new developments and extensions to existing properties meet its emerging requirement of achieving a climate change goal of net zero emissions by 2030.

When adopted,the policy will be used to make sure that planning decisions reflect as far as possible the authority’s aspiration to achieve that goal.

The consultation runs until Friday, February 21, 2020 and can be viewed at www.stratford.gov.uk/climatechangespd




It is also available to inspect at the District Council offices – Elizabeth House, Church Street, Stratford, CV37 6HX and at public libraries across the district.

Copies of the document can be obtained from the Council.


The District Council is also hosting a drop-in day when officers will be available to answer questions and provide more information. This will take place at Elizabeth House on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 from 3pm to 7pm.

Councillor Daren Pemberton, whose portfolio covers planning, said: “This consultation relates to how we will use our current Core Strategy to achieve our climate change emergency goals.

“This document will pay a pivotal part in achieving our climate strategy. It is the key tool in this Core Strategy to ensure our residents’ desire to address climate change is addressed.”
