Work set to start on cycle trails at Newbold Comyn
Exciting plans to bring safe, family-friendly cycling to Warwick District are being realised, as work is set to start next month on a series of cycle trails at Newbold Comyn.
Planning permission for the cycle trails and associated hub was granted in May 2021. With the planning conditions now discharged, construction will take place to create the trails on a small section of the former golf course from early October 2022.
To maintain access to the park for users and to minimise disruption, the construction will take place in small fenced-off sections over the next few months, with completion expected by March 2023.
The perimeter path of the Comyn will remain open, and every consideration is being taken to ensure there is no impact to wildlife or biodiversity on the site.
Construction of the cycle trails has been made possible thanks to a £423,500 grant from Sport England and British Cycling through the Places to Ride fund. Additional funding is being provided from the Community Infrastructure Levy.
The cycle trails will be completely free to use and will eventually be supported by a cycling hub in the former golf shop to provide cycle hire facilities, a café, and toilets. The hub will bring an important listed building on the site back in to use, preserving and improving its character and condition.
