£1.8 million funding by C&W LEP

A grant of £1.8 million from the Coventry and Warwickshire LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership) will enable transformation of the forecourt of Leamington Station railway station, prioritising greener travel, linking bus, taxi, cycle and rail.

This funding, bringing long-term benefits, is driven by the international bowls competitions being held at Victoria Park as part of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.  It is estimated these will bring £26 million to local businesses.

WDC, working with the Town Council, BID Leamington and the Chambers of Trade, a total of £3.6 million in all will be available to address the town’s transport problems of chronic air pollution and road congestion.
