It’s been an exciting week with the unveiling of plans designed by Corstorphine + Wright, for two major development schemes in Leamington – totalling £50m.
The first scheme aims to create a new council headquarters for Warwick District Council, a multi-storey car park and around 40 private apartments in the Covent Garden area of the town centre.
Development of the Covent Garden site would see a new modern, larger and more user-friendly car park replacing the current multi-storey which is suffering from alkali-silica reaction meaning it is not cost-effective to be repaired. Our plans would increase the number of car parking spaces at Covent Garden and there would be more than 60 charge points for electric vehicles.
The relocation of Warwick District Council from its present site on Milverton Hill would mean the Council’s current location would be redeveloped for housing.
The plans for the two schemes have been presented to the council’s Development Review Forum and will be on public exhibition early next month, while planning applications are expected to be submitted early summer.
The plans will be on show at the Royal Priors Shopping, The Parade, on June 3 between 10am and 2pm and will then be shown www.warwickdc.gov.uk/relocation
