From the Severn Ward viewpoint, Robert Hitchin Ltd has put forward two parcels of land to be included in the next Local Plan, in Whitminster Parish. These parcels of land run from the A419 northwards to Grove Lane, then from Grove Lane northwards to the parish boundary with Moreton Valence, all within the M5/A38/A419 triangle.

These were put forward too late to be included in the Local Plan consultation, which ended on January 22nd.

Proposed are 2250 houses, Employment land, Community and Leisure facilities, and a Primary School.

Whitminster Parish Council will be vigorously contesting this proposal when further consultation takes place, as well as to a small parcel of land off Hyde Lane in the village

Both Cllr Stephen Davies and Cllr John Jones hope you all stay safe and well.  Keeping to the advice given out daily by the Government, hopefully this virus will be beaten soon.
