How many houses are we required to accept?
At a meeting held on 11th July 2016, Stratford-on-Avon District Council resolved to adopt the Stratford-on-Avon Core Strategy (SDCS). With regard to housing development, Hampton Lucy has been designated a Category 4 Local Service Village (LSV) due to our limited facilities in the village based on whether a village has a school, a shop etc.
Across the District, 400 homes in total is the SDC strategic allocation identified for Category 4 LSVs, of which no more than around 8% should be provided in any individual settlement, that is, around 32 houses. This means that, following the Charles Church development of 25 dwellings in Hampton Lucy, we are expected to provide at least a further 7 houses between now and 2031.
SDC is committed to giving local people the opportunity to influence where homes are built in their communities and encourages Parish Councils to prepare Neighbourhood Plans that identify sites to meet or exceed the housing requirements set out.
