WORK is well underway on the multi-million pound development of Tach Brook County Park.
The park – which is set to be around the size of 60 football pitches – will be created close to Harbury Lane in Whitnash but also run through parts of Warwick.
It is part of the district council’s local plan – which will shape the future of the district until 2031 – and is being created to balance out the some 17,000 homes being built over the coming years.
The park and its running over the next 13 years is set to cost between some £2.5million and £9million, which will be covered by neighbouring housing developers who will pay nearby £800 per property towards the park. After 13 years the cost will fall to the council.
A council spokesman said: “The new country park will form one of the largest green open spaces in Warwick District and will be the main green space within the urban extension.
“Subsequent planned public open space within proposed developments will link to the country park providing a seamless and integrated network of green spaces.”
Nearby land on Europa Way on Europa Way is also set to have homes built on it, but the council say they have left space to extend the park through the developments.
