Kenilworth Neighbourhood Plan
Decision Statement published pursuant to Regulation 18 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General)
Regulations 2012

The Kenilworth Neighbourhood Plan was subject to independent examination. The Examiner’s report was received in August 2018. The report recommended that the Kenilworth Neighbourhood Plan should proceed to referendum, subject to a number of modifications.

The Council has considered each of the recommendations made by the Examiner, and is satisfied that subject to each of the modifications being made for the reasons given in the report, the Kenilworth Neighbourhood Plan can proceed to referendum for the following reasons:

  • The Neighbourhood Plan meets the Basic Conditions;
  • The Neighbourhood Plan has been prepared and submitted for examination by a Qualifying Body, Kenilworth Town Council;
  • The Neighbourhood Plan has been prepared for an area properly designated, the Parish of Kenilworth;
  • The policies relate to the use of land and development for the designated neighbourhood

Warwick District Council agrees with the Examiner’s recommendation that the referendum of the Kenilworth Neighbourhood Plan should be based on the designated Neighbourhood Area, as identified within the Plan, and approved by Warwick District Council on 17 August 2015.
