Members of the public are being asked to share their views on a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).

The SPD will provide a framework for guiding the level of growth of the campus at the University of Warwick as well as formalising design principles.

The draft masterplan prepared by Warwick District Council in partnership with Coventry City Council and the University of Warwick identifies a number of proposals up to 2033 based on the long-term vision and priorities of the University. These include plans for a new business school, social sciences quarter, science precinct and energy innovation centre and the creation of an eco-park.

The plans also address on and off campus transport infrastructure and the provision of additional student accommodation.

Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Place Councillor Chris King commented: “Our local plan acknowledges the important role that Warwick University plays in supporting the local economy and the need for it to grow and develop as a leading player in higher education, research and innovation both nationally and internationally.

“If adopted the Warwick Campus Framework Masterplan SPD will provide us with supplementary guidance which will assist the determination of future planning applications. I therefore recommend that interested parties take the time to review and comment on the document.”

The SPD is subject to a six-week statutory consultation, starting on Friday 24 May with the deadline for submissions Friday 5 July 2024.

Printed copies of the documents are available for inspection during normal opening hours at the following locations.
