Oversley Wood Reopening– The access track and small parking area for Oversley Wood has reopened after the completion of winter harvesting operations. Forestry England want to thank you for your patience.
Thank you to those of you who responded to the recent Housing Needs Survey. The results will now be collated by Warwickshire Rural Community Council and the Town Council will be sent a report in due course. The report will provide very useful up to date information for the Town Council. It will help shape our policies when we update the Alcester Neighbourhood Development Plan and will inform future housing requirements for any new housing development.
Read all about it! The Town Council was recently offered the chance to have an article about business in Alcester in the “Warwickshire Means Business” publication. This great article on Alcester ‘powering the world’ has just been published.
