A blueprint for Rugby's future growth has been approved.
A planning inspector says he is happy with the Local Plan - setting out which areas will be used for housing and employment.
It will now be considered by the Borough Council at a meeting next month.
Cllr Sebastian Lowe, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for Growth and Investment, said: "I am grateful to Mr Mike Hayden, the independent inspector, for the diligent and professional way that he has examined the Borough Plan. Residents and other interested parties have had many opportunities to have their say and the inspector has taken account of their contributions.
"We now have a plan for the growth of the borough that meets all of the legal requirements.
"I will be recommending that my colleagues on the Council adopt the plan so that we have the best possible opportunity to shape future development."
The borough council will meet to consider the Borough Local Plan on 4 June 2019.
