Plans for a substantial new public open space located south of Warwick and Leamington Spa, have been approved by the Planning Committee.
The decision enables the project team to complete land transfers and procure contractors to create the 49-hectare landmark, Tachbrook Country Park.
The Leader of Warwick District Council, Councillor Andrew Day commented:
“This welcome decision brings overdue good news to the thousands of residents who have made their homes in the new communities that are forming in Bishop’s Tachbrook and Heathcote.
At last, we can get on with the job of establishing this much anticipated Country Park that will provide accessible, sustainable green space and an array of public benefits for all ages. Thank you to all our partners who have worked so hard to overcome significant obstacles to get this vital project moving.”
Sean Deely, Chair of the Tachbrook Country Park Steering Board and Parish Councillor added:
“This is a significant step forward in delivering a fantastic new amenity which will vitally connect local communities and serve many more. This unlocks the next stages in delivering the Tachbrook Country Park, which we are aiming to complete as soon as is feasibly possible.”
Stretching across 49 hectares (121 acres) between Bishop’s Tachbrook, Whitnash, Leamington Spa and Warwick, Tachbrook Country Park will become one of the largest green spaces in the district connecting the new housing developments to Oakley school and other major public amenities planned for the area.
