In their Draft Local Plan they have proposed 18 sites throughout the entire borough to accommodate 6,150 extra houses by the year 2028. One site has been put forward for Meriden – up to 50 houses at the Birmingham Road site (old garage and caravan site) extending to the north of the Firs. You can read more with the link below:
