On behalf of residents, the Borough Council has arranged six drop-in sessions to consult on the Preferred Options stage of the Borough Plan Review.

These sessions have been arranged to give residents the chance to ask any questions they may have on the Borough Plan Review, as well as the opportunity to provide a response to the Preferred Options proposals. Further details about the Review and consultation can be found at: www.nuneatonandbedworth.gov.uk/consult 

The drop-in sessions will be held at various locations throughout the Borough:

Bermuda Phoenix Centre - Monday, 20 June. 5pm to 7.30pm

In addition to the in-person consultation events, from Monday, 27 June residents can participate by telephone in the BOROUGH PLAN BRIEFING ‘CALL A PLANNER’ WEEK.

You can speak to one of our Planning Officers about the Borough Plan, by calling 024 7637 6328 during normal office hours. Alternatively, you can book in to receive a call back at a time that suits you.

The Preferred Options stage of the Borough Plan Review sets out where housing and employment sites may go, and updates policies within the Plan.

The consultation is an important stage of the Plan making process and comments must be in written form and made within the consultation period.

Cllr Richard Smith, portfolio holder for Planning and Regulation said:

“This Preferred Options Consultation is an important stage of the Borough Plan Review, and it gives residents the opportunity to have their say in shaping the plan before it moves to the next stage.

"Planning officers have worked hard over the last year to build a solid evidence base which has shaped the emerging Plan to this point, and it is now time for residents to have their say on the work done so far.

"I would urge anyone with an interest in the future of housing and employment sites across the borough to get involved and give us your views”

The consultation period will run from Monday June 13 until Friday July 22.

Residents, businesses, and other organisations are able to respond via email or in writing, with the consultation documents available to view on the Council’s website at www.nuneatonandbedworth.gov.uk/consult as well as in paper form at the Town Hall, Bedworth Library and Bulkington Library upon request.
