Long-time Warwick campaigner Nigel Hamilton believes the time has come for a new group to be formed specifically to protect the interests of the publicly-owned St Mary’s Lands - partly occupied by Warwick Racecourse.

Mr Hamilton, whose home in Hampton Street overlooks the land, admits he has a personal “vested interest” in the site.

Along with others he was prominent in the fight to stop a hotel being built in 2012.

District councillors rejected the racecourse’s hotel application but since then have financially contributed to a report commissioned by The Jockey Club on a future land management plan.

Consultants GVA Leisure seem to have pleased few
people with their recommendations - especially after putting a hotel back on the agenda.

Anyone interested in joining a Friends of St Mary’s Lands group can email nigel.hamilton3@ntlworld.com

n In a linked dispute, 
trustees of Racing Club 
Warwick, who are stakeholders in the land, were yesterday (Thursday) told they would finally be issued with a new lease.
