WORK is well underway to improve and develop St Mary’s Lands in Warwick.
A programme was approved by councillors in 2016 and a number of changes have taken place in the past year.
This includes installing an accessible perimeter around the racecourse, allowing the public to use the 2.5km track outside of race days for walking, cycling and running.
A multi-use games area has also been created at neighbouring Racing Club Warwick Football Club.
Over the coming months a refurbishment of the facilities used by Warwick Corps of Drums and upgrade of the clubhouse at the Warwick Golf Centre will also take place.
And in future a cycle route be built linking Aylesford School with the Woodloes Estate. Improvements will also be made to the main entrance and the Bread and Meat Close car park.
District spokesman Coun Noel Butler said: “After many years of planning it’s great to see the plan of improvements taking shape.
“It’s very rewarding to see these wonderful facilities and open spaces being opened up for our whole community to enjoy, because of the greatly improved access.”
