CREATING OUTDOOR SPACES AND COMMUNITY FACILITIES
Access to our countryside and beautiful open spaces is an uplifting benefit of living in our district. Whether we’re walking, cycling or engaging in various sporting activities, we recognise that these community assets are vital for all residents, of all ages and all abilities. These spaces also help shape the identify of our various towns and parishes, providing green buffers that both separate and connect us.
We have championed the creation of new Country Parks at Baginton and are working up plans for Queen Elizabeth Park located on the Leam River, between Victoria Park and the Portobello bridge in Warwick. In September next year the first phase of the Tach Brook Country Park is due to open, which we are seeking to extend south of the brook all the way to the Bishop’s Tachbrook village, with enabling woodland to be planted and an array of other public amenities, including for wild water swimming. In addition to a major scheme to upgrade play equipment and the amenities of our public parks, a Conservative-led Council would prioritise these important programmes.
