More time to have your say on future of Newbold Comyn

Leamington Editorial 14th May, 2020   0

CONSULTATION on the future of Leamington’s Newbold Comyn has been extended to end of June.

The draft masterplan for the popular 300 acre country park was unveiled in March with residents asked for their views.

It includes an extension to the nature reserve, a pitch and putt, high ropes, outdoor climbing and zip wires, new visitor centre and café with football pavilion and a variety of cycle tracks across the former golf course.

District neighbourhood services spokeswoman Coun Moira-Ann Grainger said: “Due to the coronavirus pandemic we have extended the consultation to allow time for as many people as possible to review the draft masterplan and complete the survey.

“We have also produced print versions of the survey and the information available on our website to enable those without internet access to take part and return it to us in plenty of time.”

The 45-year-old golf course closed at the end of 2017 after former management company Mack Golf withdrew from its contract.

The course, which made up a large part of the park, has remained unplayed since, although £50,000 is being spent on maintaining it.
