New name marks a new era for Lighthorne


Lighthorne Heath Parish will be renamed Upper Lighthorne Parish in April following a ballot of residents last month.

The name change is designed to reflect the large changes to the local community which will come with the new Gaydon Lighthorne Heath settlement being constructed in the parish.

Lighthorne Heath Village itself will not change its name.

Stratford District Council is expected to give final approval to the name change during next Wednesday’s Full Council meeting.
