Warwick District Council is planning community engagements events for housing developments in Kenilworth.
Warwick District Council (WDC) along with architects Atkins Global will be holding further community engagement events on Saturday 11 and Thursday 16 March 2023, for local residents to find out more about the planned redevelopment of the school sites at Leyes Lane and Rouncil Lane, Kenilworth.
These events will be held at the current school sites, with the opportunity to discuss both schemes at either events.
- Leyes Lane School: Saturday 11 March, 9.30am – 12.30pm
- Rouncil Lane School: Thursday 16 March, 5pm – 8pm
Both sites, which are allocated for residential development within the Warwick District Council Local Plan (2011 – 2029), aim to provide high quality, sustainable, energy efficient homes, with a blended mix of 1, 2, 3 & 4 bed properties, including affordable and open market homes, that meet future housing need.
The event gives residents the chance to look at the proposals and gain an understanding of WDC’s aspirations for the sites. It also allows attendees to discuss the process involved for the redevelopment and provide thoughts and comments on both sites before any planning application is submitted.
Councillor Jan Matecki, Portfolio Holder for Housing, said: “This is another early opportunity for local residents to discuss the development of this part of Kenilworth with us, and help us be confident that the development is both sympathetic to the area and sustainable for future generations.”
Atkins Global added: “As Warwick District Council look to develop the former school sites, following completion of the new Kenilworth Secondary School at Southcrest Farm, we will ensure that the District has the right amount, quality and mix of housing to meet future needs by ensuring new housing development is in locations which enable sustainable lifestyles.”
