THE building of 500 homes on land at Bishopton in Stratford-upon-Avon was given planning permission last night, Wednesday.

Members of Stratford-on-Avon District Council's west area planning committee unanimously approved the application for the 61-acre site between the A46 and Bishopton Lane.

The land is in Stratford's core strategy and therefore had already been endorsed by the council for housing. It will be developed by Miller Homes and Taylor Wimpey.

Also among the plans are land for a school, roads into the site would be from Bishopton Lane and The Ridgeway, and traffic lights would be put on the canal bridge to control traffic.

There were objections from several councillors, Stratford Town Council and protest group, Bishopton Residents’ Action Group.

REACTION TO FOLLOW.
