Summary and Guide

Of necessity this Neighbourhood Plan is quite a complicated and detailed document. The purpose of this page is to explain the structure and help you find your way around.

It may be useful to clarify what the Neighbourhood Plan cannot do. It cannot modify the strategic policies of the recently adopted Warwick District Local Plan. These include allocations of land, some of which was previously in the Green Belt, for housing and school relocation and of land for outdoor sports facilities. What it can do though is to apply policies to influence and manage such allocations and also control more of the money arising from development for the benefit of the town.


  1. Background This section explains the background to the Kenilworth Neighbourhood Plan.

  1. The Neighbourhood Area This section details many of the features of the Town and its facilities together with many of the issues which have been raised during the various Surveys and Consultations. It is supported by a Series of maps. Some of these are included in the text but the main maps are 2.1 to 2.8 at the back.
  1. Planning Policy Context This rather technical section relates this Plan to the National Planning Policy Framework and the Warwick District Council Local Plan.

  1. Community Views on Planning Issues This section explains the extensive Community involvement there has been over the last few years and summarises the main issues.

  1. Vision, Objectives & Land Use Policies This is the key section. Following a statement on Vision and Objectives it details 22 Policies from the Town Centre to Flooding which are proposed to address the issues raised. These Policies are listed opposite. There are two main maps, 5.1 and 5.2 at the back and a number of Local Character Area Maps in Appendix A relating to Policy KP14. The Policy KP 15 which proposes a Local List of properties refers to the List in Appendix B.

  1. Implementation This section sweeps up several matters. It explains how the Plan will be implemented and future development guided and managed. It suggests projects which might be supported by the Community Infrastructure Levy which the Town Council will have some influence over. Finally it deals with a number of issues from Charity Shops to HS2 which although relevant are outside the scope of a Neighbourhood Plan.
