This page provides links to some of the Character, Sensitivity and other assessments of areas within Brailes parish commissioned by Stratford District Council for the Core Strategy evidence base.

Brailes’ categorisation as a Local Service Village (LSV) and consequential allocation of new homes under the Core Strategy, has resulted in the District Council commissioning of a number of surveys to assess the settlement’s suitability for these new homes.

The following links will take you to a selection of those surveys currently published on the Stratford District Council’s website, within the Core Strategy evidence base files.
