2023 Cycling Documents

Making progress with their plans, a paper is due to go to Warwick District Council’s Cabinet on 8th March 2023 regarding a proposed route through Abbey Fields and the consultation process. The documents were posted online on 27th February:


Agenda Item No 14, Cabinet Committee, 8 March 2023.  Title:     Abbey Fields Cycle Route Proposals

The Proposals include the above map, showing 5 routes.


Plans of Abbey Fields:    Appendix A

History of Consultations:       Appendix B

Consideration of Routes:        Appendix C

Summary of Routes:       Appendix D

Extract from Abbey Fields Consultation Report “Fields for our Future”:       Appendix E



In summary, WDC have opted to go for creating a cycle path along existing pathways, widening them where necessary, against the wishes of many including Kenilworth Town Council, who prefer a separate path. The two main reasons appear to be that a new pathway would intrude into the Abbey’s surroundings and archaeology, and it is the cheapest.



Meeting update:

The Cabinet unanimously decided to press ahead with the scheme; the next stage includes a 6 week public consultaion:     Cabinet Meeting news report
