Stratford Greenway

Elected members agreed on 17th May 2016 not to refer the recommendation that parking charges are introduced on council owned car parks serving the Stratford to Long Marston Greenway back to Cabinet.
This means the Cabinet decision of 14 April 2016 stands and parking charges will be introduced on two council owned car parks which serve the Greenway at Milcote and Seven Meadows. The minimum charge for parking will be 50 pence and there will be an evaluation of the scheme 6 months after implementation on the impact of introducing charges and any wider impact on the local community.

Horse-riders – please note that a new path has been laid at the Greenway and we politely ask that you keep to the grass verges to avoid this new surface being damaged. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

“The Greenway is a high quality surfaced path suitable for cyclists, walkers and wheelchair users. It is part of the National Cycle Network, forming a five mile section of the West Midlands Cycle Route, which links Oxford to Derby via Birmingham. The Greenway is traffic free, but you will need to cross some minor roads along the way. Please remember that other cyclists, horseriders and walkers will be using the route and you should slow down as you approach them, and sound your bell if necessary.

Stratford Greenway is a permissive bridleway between Long Marston and Milcote and, other than two gates near to Seven Meadows and Milcote car parks, there are “horse boxes” constructed adjacent to the gates over which a bicycle can be lifted (they are about 250 mm high).”
