Dalcour Maclaren have provided an independent planning appraisal for the site that can be downloaded from the legal pack.  Part of their Executive Summary states:

Three potential uses have been identified:

  • Creation of residential dwellings (either large single or small multiple) or live/work units, through construction of new builds.
  • Re-use for commercial or agricultural purposes in line with other local businesses.
  • A site for a renewable energy enterprise.

The site is considered suitable for redevelopment allowing for varying options given the generous space available.

The existing structures afford the site the benefit of the status of previously developed land (PDL) within the Green Belt.  Green Belt policy supports the partial or complete redevelopment of previously developed land where the openness of the Green Belt is not harmed, which is positive for options for this site. The potential land use options  considered within this appraisal have been identified as according with Green Belt policy and also accord with several of the local plan policy objectives covering environmental, social and economic targets.

The above is for information purposes and should be read in conjunction with the full report contained within the legal pack.  Further enquiries should be directed to: Warwick District Council
