The Highway Authority has maintained its objection to building up to 900 houses on Ashlawn Road in Rugby.

David Wilson Homes applied to develop land near Rugby’s water tower in August 2014.

The initial application failed to address the issues caused by the extra traffic on the roads and was opposed by Warwickshire County Council.

The developer then sbumitted a revised application with new traffic arrangements.

SARD (Stop Ashlawn Road Development) then organised a protest and a traffic count at the Dun Cow Junction in Dunchurch.

The county council has considered the new information available and has decided that the revised proposal would be likely to cause accidents at the Dun Cow Junction.

Therefore the Highway Authority is maintaining its objection to the scheme.

More to follow.
