North Warwickshire Borough Coucil is consulting on its revised Site Allocation Plan which gives housing numbers and locations included in the Core Strategy.

Due to  the Inspectors concerns about the proposed housing numbers in the previous site allocations document, it has been necessary to increase the numbers in a lot of settlements, of which Ansley is one.

Ansley Village

The number of new homes that are being proposed is now 57. which is 24 at the Village Farm site ( ref. ANS1) and 33 on land to the rear of the Chapel on the Birmingham Road (ANS4). The latter is expected to be a phased development over the plan period which is until 2028, and may well include improved parking facilities for the Church Hall. They are also recommending "Archaeological trial trenching" to be performed so there may be something of historical importance in the background to this, although we are not aware of what this is at the present time.


Ansley Common

Ansley Common has been linked to Hartshill as part of one service centre, as the Borough Council are of the opinion that they share a lot of common services eg shops, schools etc. The total number of proposed houses for this area has gone up from 400 to 440. 400 of these are proposed on land at Hartshill Quarry and 40 on land to the rear of number 16 to 127 Coleshill Road, Ansley Common. 


There is an opportunity for people to have a say on these proposals and drop in sessions have been arranged for people to speak to the planning team. The nearest to us is at Hartshill Community Hub and will take place on Tuesday 8th July 10.00 - 1.00 and 6.00 - 8.00 or Wednesday 9th July 2.00 - 5-00pm. Alternatively you can respond by post to The Forward Planning Team, North Warwickshitre Borough Council, The Council House, South Street Atherstone Warwickshire CV9 1DE or by E Mail to: planningpolicy@northwarks.gov.uk


The consultation period lasts from 26th June to 5pm on Thursday 21st August
