The proposed housing site is near to the A429 bypass – with it being to the west. The eastern boundary of the site adjoins the Avonbridge Walk in Bremridge Close, developed by Taylor Wimpey.

If given the go ahead 35 homes, which would range from one to five beds, would be built on the site with 21 being open market and 14 being ‘affordable’ homes.

According to the plans, access to the site would be via Yew Tree Way.

As of October 30, 14 objection have been made to the plans with many raising concerns over traffic and parking on the neighbouring streets, amenities in the village not coping, no need for more housing and concerns about wildlife and biodiversity on the site.

An Environmental Health Officer at Warwick District Council has also submitted a ‘holding objection’ to the plans due to concerns about noise levels for some of the properties and the need for more information and assessments.

Comments can be made on the application until Friday November 3.
