New cycle route part of £1.4m community investment

Hampton Magna is set to be linked to Warwick town centre by a new cycle route.

A contribution of almost £371,000 from Miller Homes West Midlands will help fund the route, which runs along Hampton Road via Aylesford School.

It is part of a wider package of investment, worth more than £1.4m, into local services and facilities surrounding the new homes builder’s new Montgomery Grange development in Hampton Magna.

In total, Miller Homes West Midlands will be providing £1,474,323, with the majority of the money going towards improving healthcare services and nearby schools, as well as sports and recreation facilities.

Just over £175,500 will be used for acute and planned healthcare services at Warwick Hospital, with a further £51,000 going to the Budbrooke Medical Centre in Hampton Magna.

Meanwhile, more than £238,000 will be given to Warwickshire County Council towards primary and secondary schools in the area.

As well as the new cycle route, more money will be invested to boost local sports and recreation, including £107,785 for new changing facilities at Central Ajax Football Club and nearly £10,000 going towards renovating Styles Close play area. A similar amount will be used to improve playing pitches at Racing Club Warwick, Leamington FC, Ajax Park, Leamington Hibernian and Alvis Sports.

Once complete, Montgomery Grange, which is just off Arras Boulevard, will offer buyers a selection of one, two, three, four and five bedroom homes.

Alastair Parsons, area sales director for Miller Homes West Midlands, said:  “We don’t believe in just dropping in to new areas, building our homes and then leaving. Our aim is to create thriving new neighbourhoods that add to existing communities and to do that, it’s important that we support the local area in a meaningful way. That’s why we’ve announced this latest funding package.”
