Views sought on new Leamington woodland plan

28/02 Updated: 28/02 11:30

PEOPLE are being asked for their views on a new woodland in Leamington.

Community group ARC CIC are assisting the developers of the former Ford Foundry to create a green triangle of land - between Princes Drive, Park Drive and the railway lines - at the back of the site as a ‘community woodland’.

The group are in the process of consulting the community via meetings and public surveys as to what the space could be used for and will then start to tidy the land and make it more accessible to the public. They also want people to suggest possible names.

Coun Bill Gifford said: "Currently we are calling it the ‘green space’ which is not particularly inspiring - so we’d like to ask the community to help us come up with a better name."

The group hopes to develop the site over the next few years to make it accessible to a variety of groups for environmental education as well as leisure activities.

Developers of the site Trilogy Developments are backing the project.

Visit www.arccic.co.uk for further details about the project and how to get involved.

People can also have their say at community consultation evenings at the Brunswick Healthy Living centre on February 28, at 7pm; Leamington Town Hall on March 8, at 7pm; and at Bath Place at the old library in Avenue Road, also at 7pm.
