East Whitnash – boundary review update

Under the forthcoming boundary review, East Whitnash (or South Sydenham) will remain in the Town of Whitnash.

There are NO plans to review this until at least after the next election in 2019, and then if they do, any changes made would not come into effect until the elections in 2023.

Any proposed development south of the Bridle Path would probably take place within the next seven years, so therefore this means that any section 106 and CIL money will come to Whitnash Town. This is excellent news as it will help to make the new community hub project more viable.


New Play Equipment is coming

Exciting news!

16/09/2017: Update

The contactor, Wicksteed, failed to turn up as scheduled and work will now begin work on the 18th September.


New play equipment is being installed at Washbourne Fields. The work is due to start on Monday 4th September and will take up to 6 weeks.
Understandably, during this time there will be some access restrictions and disruption for which we apologise in advance.

This development has been made possibly through Section 106 funding made available from the new housing developments in the area.

Road and footpath improvements

You may have noticed that some improvements to footpaths and roads in the town have commenced. Many footpaths and roads have had no resurfacing or surface dressing for many years, leaving them in a poor condition. Recently however, the Town Council has managed to get some of these essential repairs onto the 'to do' list of Warwickshire County Council, and a few have already begun or been completed.

Morse Road recently benefitted from surface dressing, whilst footpaths along parts of Murcott Road East and Mollington Road have had surface repairs and slurry sealing. Now the very broken footpaths along Franklin Road up to the Moorhill Road junction are being dug up and completely reconstructed.
Several other roads and footpaths around the town are due for some similar attention over the coming months, so watch this space, and please bear with us whilst the works are carried out.

Any significant road closures will be announced in advance where possible.
