The future of Newbold Comyn
The survey on the draft masterplan for the future of Newbold Comyn has now closed. In total we received 2213 responses. Thank you for taking part, and for taking the time to give us your views.
The results of this consultation will be reviewed before the final format of the Masterplan is agreed. The Council also need to consider the funding for each facility as this will impact the delivery timetable of the Masterplan.
This work will take place over the coming months before a report of the final Masterplan and funding strategy is recommended to the Council’s Executive. The Masterplan will provide a long term vision for Newbold Comyn which will generate opportunities for new facilities and each element will be subject to its own delivery programme.
The draft masterplan
The draft masterplan shows the proposed mix of facilities at Newbold Comyn. This mix has been drawn up by analysing the results of the previous survey carried out in September 2019, alongside engagement with stakeholders and a cross-party Councillor workshop. It carefully balances the affordability of each facility, how they meet local need, and the impact on the local area.
The draft masterplan shows that Newbold Comyn has:
- an extension to the nature reserve
- a revised golf offer, with adventure golf and pitch & putt
- high ropes, outdoor climbing and zip wires
- a new visitor centre and café with football pavilion
- a variety of cycle tracks across the former golf course
Though the consultation has now closed, you can still view the draft masterplan below.
