Next week Warwickshire County Council (WCC) launches a major public consultation on the traffic impact of the new Waitrose and Talisman Square development in Kenilworth.

The comments and views of residents will be sought on which of three options they prefer for changes to traffic flows in the town centre. These options have been developed by WCC and its consultants Arup in conjunction with a number of key stakeholder groups in the town.

Local Liberal Democrat councillors have played a prominent part in the work leading up to this public consultation, and are very keen that town residents now get their opportunity to make their views known.

Cllr John Whitehouse (Liberal Democrat, Kenilworth Abbey) said:

"The Waitrose and Talisman Square developments are the best things to happen to Kenilworth town centre for a generation. I firmly believe that by taking the right traffic measures the town can deal with the extra traffic the new store may generate. I would rather be dealing with the problems of success rather than the results of failure!"

The public consultation runs from the 12th February to the 2nd of March, with an exhibition in Unit 3, Talisman Square (former Astral Electrics, next to Boots). WCC and Arup staff will be in attendance on Thursday 15th February (10.00am-7.00pm) and on Saturday 24th February (10am-4pm).

Additional information and an electronic version of the questionnaire will be available throughout the consultation period on www.warwickshire.gov.uk/kenilworthtraffic or by e-mailing kenilworth@warwickshire.gov.uk.
