Riverside House public meeting and protest

Last week was also a big one for the campaign to stop Warwick District Council’s proposed new offices. The Council finally held a public meeting, something I have been calling for for several months. Around 350 local residents attended, with one after another speaking in opposition to the disastrous proposals. Hundreds also attended a rally on Saturday outside the Town Hall to protest the plans, which was covered by regional news at the weekend.

These proposals will cause car parking chaos in Leamington town centre, negatively affect businesses at a difficult time for the high street, and we’ll lose many of our precious trees. On top of this, the Council are planning to sell off their current office site for private housing, which will include no affordable housing. The Council are breaking their own policy for 40% affordable housing on all large sites.
