Things are getting back to normal (if there is such a thing) after the Christmas period.

Thursday 23rd Jan
There has been quite a bit of speculation and mis leading information circulating recently with reagrds to THE KINGS HILL DEVELOPMENT in our area and therefore Cllr Pam Redford & Cllr Trevor Wright had a series of meetings to clarify the ACTUAL current position.
We are very aware of the sensitivity around this development and more significantly the impact on our area in terms of traffic, disruption and other related issues.
Kings Hill Highways Briefing Note
Development at Kings Hill would be possible from the two access points, one at Stoneleigh Road and the other at Green Lane. The amount of development is capped subject to certain works occurring, which has been set out below;
No dwellings can be occupied until one of the following has become operational;
The completed spine road linking the access points will be required prior to the 701st occupation. It will be built to the following specification;
There was significant question with regards to the 15-year duration of the conditions, now these conditions apply to the overall outline plan and it has been put in place to protect the Community Infrastructure Levies and 106 monies during the duration of the development.
These conditions DO NOT apply to the overall development of the housing as these will be covered under reserved matters WHEN and only WHEN the full development plan is submitted for planning permission.
In summary the 15-year conditions imposed will ensure that the financial obligations are committed irrelevant of when they start to build. Additionally, it prevents any costly consideration and restructure of the outline plan and community commitments.
The development conditions (i.e. housing etc) will be dealt with separately under reserved matter.
They can not start construction of the housing until the Signalisation of the A46/Stoneleigh Junction; or A46 Stoneleigh Junction Scheme; or an equivalent scheme of highway improvement has been completed.
Elements of this are also partly dependent of the HS2 work being completed should it continue following the current review.
Be assured Cllr Pam Redford & Cllr Trevor will continue to monitor the situation intervening where necessary.
Over the Christmas period during one of Cllr Trevor Wrights drive around the rural areas he covers he cam across one of the most extreme examples of fly tipping of 2019 on the Birminigham Road at Stoneligh.
There were bags and bags not just thrown on the highway but into fields as well and most of it was normal DOMESTIC waste that can easily be disposed of at one of the recycle centres we have.
This abuse cost YOU the tax payer THOUSANDS to clear up and is very damaging to the countryside and wild life in our area.
Action is in place the "Clean it up" and if we can identify the perpetrators WE WILL PROSICUTE them.
We need to stamp this out so here are some guidelines...….
If you come across FLY TIPPING please do not touch it or clean it up, instead please report it to our Neighbourhood team at www.warwickdc.gov.uk/info/20465/rubbish_waste_and_recycling/283/flytipping
Or call 01926 456128
Its important that you don't touch it as it could be hazardous and it may contain vital evidence for us to prosecute.
We are working hard to stamp this out but we need your support.
Like many people its back to work continuing where we left off.
During the break we have continued to be active in dealing with issues such as extreme "Fly tipping" issues with HS2, Plans around Kings Hill to name but a few.
As always we have a full schedule of meetings starting tonight with...
Thursday 9th January
As always we look forward to meeting you , and if you want to know what's happening locally why not join us.
In the meantime happy new year and we hope you first week back is as painless as possible.
