[27 NOV 98] STRATFORD ON AVON TOWN COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
Public Show For Homes Plan

A proposed housing scheme by Wilcon Homes on the Paddock Lane site next to Stratford's racecourse, will be on show next Saturday, 5 December. Wilcon propose to build around 150 homes on the 11 acre site, which is being reclaimed after years of use as a rubbish tip.

The public presentation will allow residents the opportunity to see a model of the development in detail and raise any concerns with the developers. 450 households around the site have each been notified through a newsletter of the presentation, which will be in the Parish Hall in Old Town, between 10.00am and 12.00noon, Saturday 5 December.

Stratford District Council who presently own the land, has spent 3.4m on removing 150,000 tonnes of contaminated domestic waste from the site, and is about to complete the operation to refill it with clean material. The clearance operation was carried out by AIG Remediation Ltd, under the supervision of AIG Consultants Ltd who managed the project on behalf of the Council.

Residents in the area are warned that, inevitably, there could be some disturbance during the three year construction period, although Wilcon, who will own the site once works house building starts, have advised that any disturbance will be kept to a minimum.

The proposed development is subject to planning permission by the Council's Avon Area Planning Committee, where it is due to be considered sometime early next year.

Notes

In February of this year, Northampton-based Wilcon Homes (Midlands) Ltd agreed to pay the Council 5.28m for the reclaimed site, after outbidding two rival house builders, including Wimpey Homes whose original bid of 3.25m initially agreed by the Council through an open tendering process, was challenged by Prowting Homes who offered 4.02m.
