Residents can find out more about Kenilworth's school site redevelopments

Leamington Editorial 6th Mar, 2023   0

RESIDENTS are being invited to find out more about the planned redevelopment of school sites in Kenilworth.

Warwick District Council, along with architects Atkins Global, will be holding two community engagement events for locals to find out more about the planned redevelopment of the school sites at Leyes Lane and Rouncil Lane.

The first event will be held at Leyes Lane School on Saturday March 11 between 9.30am and 12.30pm. The second is being held at Rouncil Lane School on Thursday March 16 from 5pm until 8pm.

There will be the opportunity to discuss both schemes at either event.




Both sites, which are allocated for residential development within WDC’s Local Plan aim to provide high quality, sustainable, energy efficient homes, with a blended mix of one, two, three and four bed properties, including affordable and open market homes, that meet future housing need.

The event gives residents the chance to look at the proposals and gain an understanding of WDC’s aspirations for the sites. It also allows attendees to discuss the process involved for the redevelopment and provide thoughts and comments on both sites before any planning application is submitted.


WDC housing spokesperson Coun Jan Matecki said: “This is another early opportunity for local residents to discuss the development of this part of Kenilworth with us, and help us be confident that the development is both sympathetic to the area and sustainable for future generations.”

Atkins Global added: “As Warwick District Council look to develop the former school sites, following completion of the new Kenilworth Secondary School at Southcrest Farm, we will ensure that the district has the right amount, quality and mix of housing to meet future needs by ensuring new housing development is in locations which enable sustainable lifestyles.”
