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

Around £371,000 is being put towards helping fund the route, which goes along Hampton Road via Aylesford School.

It is part of a wider investment into services and facilities surrounding the Miller Homes West Midland’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, nearby schools and 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.

More than £238,000 will also 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 around £10,000 going towards renovating the 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 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.

“Hampton Magna is a beautiful village and it’s easy to see why so many people aspire to call it their home.

"It’s great to see that the money will be used on two areas that many care so passionately about and impact on all our lives, particularly at the moment – healthcare and education.

“Sport and leisure is also hugely important around Hampton Magna, particularly because of how close it is to the countryside.

"I’m happy we’re able to help improve facilities for so many local teams, as well as provide new options for people wanting to explore the great outdoors such as the cycle route.

"As a keen cyclist, I’ll certainly be trying the new route out for myself.”
