Wootton Wawen Parish Council


(Click here to complete by 31st January 2022) 

Do you work in the area and want to live here as well? Have you previously lived locally and would like to return? Does your child go to school in the village and you’d like to live locally?

The parish council is concerned that there are not enough young families coming into the village, and there is a risk to the primary school without enough young children attending. We would like to develop some homes specifically for families with young children, but finding evidence of this hidden need can be difficult.

If you have young children and wish to live within the parish please complete this form.

If you know anyone with young children and currently living elsewhere who would like to live in Wootton Wawen please ask them to complete this form. They would need to have a strong local connection, eg they work in the parish, previously lived in the parish or have a close relative currently living in the parish.

The data is being collected by WRCC (an independent charity that supports rural communities across Warwickshire) on behalf of the parish council for the specific purpose of identifying parish-wide housing need only and will not be used for any other purpose. All information will be treated in strict confidence, individual returns will be anonymised, and analysis will be carried out by WRCC.

A separate form should be completed by each household in need of alternative housing and if they wish to be housed within the parish within the next five years. If necessary, please request extra forms;

Many village residents will receive a paper copy through their letterbox before the end of January and if you have received one completed survey forms should be returned by 31st January 2022 using the attached Freepost envelope, or complete this survey online at If you require one by email or paper copy please email [email protected] and request one.

Thank you for participating in this survey. Wootton Wawen Parish Council

Wootton Wawen is a small village (population 1318 - as per the 2011 census) located on the A3400, just south of Henley-in-Arden and 6 miles north of Stratford-upon-Avon. There are several notable landmarks in the village, including St. Peter's Church (of Saxon origin, and the oldest Church in Warwickshire), Wootton Hall, The Bulls Head and Navigation Public Houses and some fine individual houses from past centuries. The historic Stratford-upon-Avon Canal passes through Wootton and is carried on a cast iron aqueduct over the main road. The village has a railway station on the Stratford to Birmingham line and is also served by regular bus links to Stratford and Birmingham.

This website provides information about the Parish Council and other activities within the village. It will hopefully, become a valuable source of local information for residents and others wishing to know something about the village, its history and current events
