A MAJOR housing development in Warwick has reached a new milestone, with 25 acres of parkland handed over to locals and the district council.

New residential development Myton Green will see 735 homes built across land the size of around 27 football pitches.

And The Europa Way Consortium, comprising The King Henry VIII Endowed Trust, Warwick, the Charity of Thomas Oken and Nicholas Eyffler and the Gardner Trust, have handed over Myton Green Park – which is around the size of seven pitches – to Warwick District Council and the people of Warwick.

It includes six play areas including a multi-use games pitch with five-aside football and basketball court, new footpaths and cycleways and hundreds of trees have been planted.




In addition, a further 17.5 acres of land has been given to Warwickshire County Council for the provision of education facilities.

Michael Peachey from The King Henry VIII Endowed Trust said: “We have been committed from the outset to providing first class public open space on this site. The pandemic has shown how the benefits of fresh air, open leisure space and quality play equipment is essential to health and wellbeing.


“We are pleased after a long journey and having worked closely with Warwick District Council that local residents are now able to access this space following its adoption, and that existing and future residents will have enjoyment from these areas for many years to come.”

Warwick District Council’s neighbourhood and culture spokeswoman said: “I’m delighted to see this open space is now available for the new residents of Myton Green. Our green spaces have never been more important than they have this year, and to make them available to residents at such an early stage of the development is testament to the positive working relationships between the Council, Consortium and land promotion company Catesby Estates.

“The play areas and open space are of high quality and provide a wonderful new area for families of all ages to enjoy.”
