Inspector To Decide On Houses Scheme
government inspector is to hear the arguments over whether 400 new
houses should be built on a greenfield site in Alcester.
District Council has turned down two related applications by J S
Bloor Ltd for the development on land north of Allimore Lane, near
the western bypass at Alcester.
decided to reject the applications because government policy and
the county plan promote the use of “brownfield” sites over
also argued that the development would have a large impact on
local roads and transport services.
land is earmarked for residential use in the current district
plan, but it conflicts with another policy of directing new houses
in the district to Stratford itself.

Alcester, starting at 10am. An evening session, starting at 7pm,
is scheduled for Wednesday 1 November to allow residents who
cannot attend during the daytime to express their views.

adjourn and then reconvene on 12 December at the district council
offices at Elizabeth House, Church Street, Stratford.
