Parish Plan

The original Parish Plan for Warmington & Arlescote was based on a survey carried out in 2012, adopted by Stratford District Council in 2018. Much has changed since that original survey, a number of the original action points have been addressed, although some remain to be dealt with. Some of the original concerns or issues have disappeared with the passage of time and/or changes in technology, whilst a number of new issues have become apparent.

This revision was carried out during 2023 in order to update the findings of the March 2018 version and to take account of changes to the demographics of the Parish. The revision is based on two separate surveys, which were carried out simultaneously in April 2023.

The first, the Parish Survey questionnaire broadly replicated the questions used to compile the original Parish Plan, in order to ensure there was consistency wherever possible, and to provide a sound basis for comparing the survey findings. It is the results of this survey that have been used to inform this revision. A small working group was set up to analyse the results of the Parish Survey and to translate these into revisions to the original Parish Plan.

At the same time a new Housing Needs Survey (HNS) was commissioned to establish whether there is an identified local housing need, as defined and recognised, for any new housing in the Parish. A revised HNS report was provided by WRCC in May 2023, following their analysis of the HNS returns.

It is not the aim of this revision to reproduce the whole of the original Parish Plan. Instead, it is a stand-alone document that should be read in conjunction with the original Parish Plan. The original adopted document can be found on the Parish Council website using the link below.
