Newbold Comyn Draft Masterplan

The Leamington Society has responded to the Masterplan consultation by WDC on Newbold Comyn.  In summary the Society:

  • welcomes the new Nature Reserve area but felt the cycle track within it would be intrusive
  • believes the provision for cycling is excessive; cycling should be restricted to the north edge of the site
  • recognises the importance of physical fitness with a variety of facilities suitable for all ages
  • believe there is little future for golf on Newbold Comyn but there might be value in a pitch and putt facility
  • recognises the value of an artificial turf football pitch
  • is concerned about possible vandalism to new structures and nature hubs
  • questions the thinking on access to the site and provision of additional car spaces, and deplores any apparent mention of improved public transport or a cycle park

The Masterplan is a pre-Covid document; a post-Covid version is needed
