They will also be running a free workshop on the night (Funding opportunities and recruiting volunteers).

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.

Notice of road resurfacing works and road closures – Whitnash Road and Murcott Road East

Please be aware that Warwickshire County Council have served notice of their intention to carry out road resurfacing on Whitnash Road and Murcott Road East, which is likely to take place during August.

This will affect Whitnash Road, from the junction of Golf Lane to the junction with Murcott Road East (by The Plough), and on Murcott Road East, between the junctions of Whitnash Road and Coppice Road.

These sections of road have been highlighted as being in need of repair (along with several others) by Whitnash Town Council, and Warwickshire County Council have agreed to carry out these specific works.

Please see attached files for details of the Order from the County Council, maps showing the diversion routes that will be in operation during the road closures, and a schedule of the work that is planned.
