Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils are considering a proposal to merge, creating a new District Council covering the whole of South Warwickshire (the areas currently covered by Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils).
The public consultation on the plans to create a South Warwickshire Council starts this week on Monday 6 September and runs until Sunday 24 October.
The consultation document and online questionnaire can be viewed and completed at: www.southwarwickshire.org.uk
A new cycle training area on the south-eastern corner of the Recreation Ground is helping young riders learn to cycle safely and prepare for the roads while being free from the dangers of other vehicles.
The layout of the track is a stylised version of the town centre roads to give some authenticity to it, as are the road signs and names. Road markings, pedestrian crossings and even working traffic lights aim to make the area as realistic as possible.
Stratford Greenway offers the opportunity for traffic-free cycling and forms part of cycle route 5.
