PLANS to expand a luxury retirement village have been given the green light despite objections from a neighbouring school.
Expansion work to the Audley Binswood site will include new apartments and an extension to the existing building. Two cottages will also be converted to form part of the complex, and there will be additional car parking.
Arnold Lodge primary school raised a number of objections when development proposals were first submitted. The independent school argued that windows overlooking the playground posed a risk to child safety and that on-going construction work in the area could be dangerous.
But a final decision by Warwick District Council planning committee last night (Tuesday June 20) gave the development the go-ahead.
