URGENT - Wolds Lane
Rural Character under Threat

There is currently a planning application for Wolvey House Farm, Wolds Lane to convert the barns to 5 residential dwellings with a new build garage block (this is the first farm on the left as you leave the village along Wolds Lane)

The Parish Council is sending a strong objection to Rugby about this application because it believes that the proposed development will have a detrimental effect on the rural character and identity of Wolvey as a rural village and on the identity and use of Wolds Lane as an important village amenity. The Parish Council knows that most Wolvey residents value the green belt and open spaces around Wolvey and that Wolds Lane is particularly highly regarded and used as a recreational amenity , for leisurely walks by a large section of the community.

I know it is a busy time of year for everyone, but unfortunately the time to respond to the planning department is not increased because of the Christmas holidays. It is likely that this is a deliberate ploy of the applicants’ agents to submit such an application at a time when most people have other things on their minds.
Comments or objections need to be sent to Rugby by 30th December.

The planning application number is R10/0383 and is available to view on the Rugby Borough Council Website:

If you agree with the Parish Council that this is important then responses should be sent to:

Mr Owain Williams
Development Team
Rugby Borough Council
Town Hall
Evreux Way
C21 2RR

Email: owain.williams@rugby.gov.uk  BY 30th DECEMBER

If you agree with the Parish Council’s objection you can simply say that.
