The next meeting of the Parish Council is Tuesday 3 December at 7.30pm (change of date) at the URC Church on Bennetts Road. All welcome. The agenda is here
Save Keresley Green Belt
Pegasus Planning Group have plans to build 800 houses on the green belt in Keresley. The Parish Council is trying to stop this.
The Joint SHMA, the assessment of housing needs for Coventry and Warwickshire, has now been published. This is it. It suggests 23,600 houses for Coventry up to 2031 - more than can be built on brown field sites alone.
There will be a walk on New Year's Day at 11am for an 11.15 start, from the Hare and Hounds. There are alternative routes of one mile to three miles. This is the route.
Thanks to everyone who attended the meeting at the Hare and Hounds on 16 November.
