- Coventry & Warwickshire Gateway Development: -
- See the Gateway Public Inquiry section for the latest news and Proofs of Evidence. View the timetable for the Inquiry, but note that this is subject to change at the Inspector's discretion. As of the end of Wednesday 16th April, the Inquiry was running one day behind schedule.
- The planning application for this proposed development was submitted to Warwick District Council (WDC) on 12th September 2012. The application reference number was W/12/1143. Baginton Parish Council objected to the planning application and made representations at the Planning Committee meetings on 19th December 2012 and 12th June 2013. The Planning Committee voted 7 to 3 in favour of approving the application at the June meeting. The Parish Council wrote asking the Secretary of State, Eric Pickles, to call-in the application, as the decision by WDC was against National Planning Policy. Mr Pickles has decided to do this and has instructed WDC not to grant planning permission pending a Public Inquiry, which is due to commence on 8th April 2014.
- The date and venue for the Public Inquiry were confirmed at the beginning of January 2014. The Inquiry will be held at Leamington Town Hall and will begin at 10.00am on Tuesday 8th April 2014. The Inquiry is expected to last approximately 16 days and will sit on 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 15th, 16th, 23rd, 24th, 29th and 30th April and 1st, 2nd, 7th, 8th, 9th and 13th May 2014. There was a pre-inquiry meeting at the Town Hall on 22 January 2014 at 2.00pm, to discuss procedural and other arrangements. Although the latter was a public meeting, it was principally for the benefit of the Inspector, applicant, Councils and Rule 6 parties.
