Join ‘Voice of Warwickshire

Voice of Warwickshire is a residents panel which aims to provide people who live in Warwickshire an opportunity to share their views on subjects such as climate change and sustainability, community safety, and education. Results from surveys completed by panel members are fed directly back to decision makers within the council, to assist them when making plans and decisions. Participation in the panel allows local residents to share their views and opinions and will provide a valuable insight into the needs of local communities helping to shape the future of Warwickshire for generations to come.

Speed Aware Wheelie Bin Stickers

A wheelie bin sticker campaign can be a great way to get your community involved in speed awareness and reduction. Communities put stickers on their wheelie bins which, when out for collection, will remind road users of the speed limit or give a message to drive carefully.

The stickers are only on display once a fortnight, which gives them more impact. It provides an element of “peer pressure” which encourages people to drive more slowly.

The pros and cons:

✅ Encourages local involvement
✅ Cheap and easy way to remind drivers of the speed limit
✅ Can be promoted through local newsletters, schools and organisations
✅ Does not unduly ‘urbanise’ rural communities

Stickers are widely available from a number of retailers including Amazon.

Have your say! Consultation on the South Warwickshire Parish 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

Check out the consultation online at or in libraries and both Council offices.

The consultation is open until Monday 6 March 2023.

The Councils want to hear your views on how South Warwickshire develops up to
2050. The new Local Plan will affect the way we live, work, visit and play in
the area, and it’s important to have your say!
