A PROPOSAL to build 90 new houses on Greenfield land to the north of Kineton was given the go-ahead last night (Wednesday).
Barwood Development Securities Ltd also plan to build office space, creating up to 125 full-time positions, on the 22-acre site off Southam Road.
Stratford District Council received 38 letters objecting to the plan, and three letters in favour.
However, the case officer from the council, Neil Hempstead, told the committee making the decision to grant planning permission.
He said that in light of Eric Pickles' recent decision to say 'yes' to 800 new homes in Shottery, Stratford-upon-Avon, he had to recommend the development.
"I give significant weight to the Secretary of State's view that there is a lack of 5-year housing supply for the district," he said.
Stratford District Council's east area planning committee voted in favour of the development by five votes to three.
The developers however, must provide £75,000, to set up a new Sunday bus service between Kineton and Leamington Spa for five years.
They must also return to the council with a full application, because on Wednesday, only the outline plans were passed.
