Extra Ordinary Meeting of the Parish Council to agree actions in response to the SWDP consultation on the proposed development of 2000 (rising to 6000)  homes on and around the Throckmorton airfield.  To put this in perspective this would be a “new town” larger than Pershore is now.    7:00 – Tuesday 12th November – Upstairs Conference room – Bishampton Villages Hall.

There is a consultation event scheduled for  2:00pm – 8:00pm 26th November at Throckmorton Parish Rooms – which may be the only opportunity in our villages,  to hear the case being put forward for this development.

The current consultation period is for PUBLIC comment and whilst there is little to no detail available – we would urge concerned residents to register their opposition or support to this scale of development and it’s potential impact on our rural environment.

PLEASE ADDRESS ANY COMMENTS OBJECTIONS ETC, by the 16th December Making sure that you are referring to the Throckmorton Airfield proposals  to:

  • By POST
    South Worcestershire Development Plan Team, Civic Centre, Queen Elizabeth Drive, Pershore, Worcestershire WR10 1PT
