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.


Whitnash Community Hub update

Over the last few months, a working group has been looking at ways in which to replace the current community centre at Acre Close, which was one of the things highlighted in the Whitnash Neighbourhood Plan.

The working group is made up of Whitnash Town councillors, representatives of the Whitnash Sports & Social Club, Whitnash Primary School, and Warwick District Council, with the aim of working together to try to ensure that the solution is the best possible for the good of the local community for years to come.

Recently, the group considered 3 different proposals –

Option 1 - a direct replacement of the current community hall as a new community hub,

Option 2 - a new community hub and additional sports hall

Option 3 - a new community hub, additional sports hall, and some new/refurbished facilities for the Sports & Social Club

Whilst the third of these is the most expensive option, it was felt this offered the best solution for all, and certainly for the town and its residents over the coming years.

At separate extraordinary meetings recently, both the full Town Council, and the members of the Whitnash Sports & Social Club voted overwhelmingly to pursue Option 3, so the finer details of what this might entail can now be investigated further, and the business case put together.
