What is the Neighbourhood Plan?

Sponsored by the Town Council, the Southam Neighbourhood Plan was initiated in 2016. It is a statement by the community within a defined boundary as to their wishes for land use, the built, and the natural environments in their area. It helps inform local planning decisions and infrastructure projects, and gains its power from the fact the community has voted for it in a special referendum and therefore it reflects a democratic view.

“Southam’s Neighbourhood Plan was adopted (‘made’) by the District Council on 11th July 2023 following overwhelming support from residents in the special referendum.

Full details, including the official version of the Plan and supporting documentation can be found on Stratford on Avon District Council web site link below

South Warwickshire Local Plan


Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils are working jointly to create a new Local Plan for South Warwickshire.

A Local Plan sets out the planning policies that the councils will use to assess applications for development as well as identifying (allocating) sites to meet our future development needs for housing and job growth.
