The Parish Council would like to alert Burton Green residents to a 9th September deadline for objections to the current “Reserved Matters” planning application from Crest Nicholson to Warwick District Council (WDC). This concerns the land to the south of Westwood Heath Road, where Crest flags are now flying.
In 2018 Crest received detailed planning approval from WDC for Phase 1 of the development (129 dwellings) and in principle approval for the rest of the development (a further 296 dwellings and convenience store). On July 2nd Crest Nicholson submitted their detailed planning application to WDC for the latter (what is known in the trade as the “Reserved Matters”). WDC has a planning backlog, so we have only just been advised of the application by them.
Your Parish Council will object to the application, on similar grounds to those we outlined in June’s Burton Green Bugle. We encourage residents to do likewise if they wish to, before the 9th September deadline. The planning reference is W/21/1280, and documents can be found under Planning on the WDC website https://planningdocuments.warwickdc.gov.uk/online-applications/
The best starting point there is Crest’s Design Compliance Statement (which re-christens the development as a Garden Village).
