The Burton Green Neighbourhood Development Plan was 'made' (i.e. adopted) by Warwick District Council on 29th March 2022. This followed a referendum on 24th March 2022, in which 96.6% of the votes cast were in favour of the neighbourhood plan. The Burton Green Neighbourhood Development Plan will now be used in the consideration and determination of planning applications within the Neighbourhood Area.


The independent Examination of the Burton Green Neighbourhood Development Plan is now complete. The Examination Report was received on 15th May 2021. The report recommends a number of modifications to the Submission Version of the BGNDP. Subject to these modifications being made, the Examiner has recommended that the neighbourhood development plan may proceed to referendum.

Following publication of the Regulation 18 Decision Statement, Warwick District Council and the Qualifying Body agreed that the NDP would not proceed to referendum on the original planned referendum date. The referendum date of 24th March 2022 supersedes the date given in the Decision Statement.
