Jury Out On Future Of Cattle Market

People being asked their views on the future of the cattle market in the centre of Stratford ahead of a major redevelopment scheme.

A draft development brief has already been prepared by the council planning department to highlights future uses of the site in Alcester Road.

It is allowing the land to be used for new offices and houses or by commercial leisure companies.

Stratford-on-Avon District Council has prepared the development brief in partnership with the current owners of the cattle market site, as well as Warwickshire County Council, Rail Property Board, Central Trains, the Warwickshire NHS Trust, and Birmingham Railway Museum.

Cllr Chris Williams, the district council's chairman of planning and regulation, said:

"It is good news that the redevelopment of the cattle market site has taken a significant and positive step forward.

"The development brief will set the principles against which any planning application for the site will be considered.

“This development provides for new offices to create jobs and much needed housing for local people.

"Situated next to the railway station, this site provides for far better co-ordination between buses and trains enabling a greater use of public transport.

“With this mind, it is essential that the views of the public are taken into account before deciding the final version of the development brief."

The development brief will be published for public consultation for a six-week period running until 16 April.

It is anticipated that it will be adopted by the council in June this year, after the views of the public have been fully taken into account.

Anyone wishing to see a copy of the draft proposals or to make any comments should contact Ernest Amoako, planner, at the district council on 01789 260399.
