Next steps taken for new Country Park
Proposals to create a new green haven for local residents and wildlife have come a step closer with the submission of a planning application to Warwick District Council.
The Council’s Planning Committee will be asked to consider the detailed plans for Tachbrook Country Park, which if approved will become one of the largest public spaces in the district, stretching across 49 hectares (121 acres) between Leamington Spa, Whitnash, Warwick and Bishop’s Tachbrook.
The new park which is located within easy access on foot or by cycle to the new housing developments will provide a stunning area for locals to enjoy fresh air, exercise, play and wildlife watching. In addition, a network of walking and cycle paths will include a traffic-free route to the planned primary and secondary schools at Oakley Grove, with space allocated for orchards, allotments a refreshment centre and children’s play areas.
In line with the Council’s climate change programme, the former farmland will see the retention and enhancement of large areas of the existing grassland, wetland areas and woodland and the introduction of wildflower meadows.
