Approximately 22 miles (35 km) south east of Birmingham and 8 miles (13 km) south west of Warwick you will find the town of Stratford-upon-Avon. It is an historic market town located on the course of the River Avon which is invariably referred to as simply Stratford by residents of the local area.
The town is the principal settlement of the similarly named non-metropolitan district of Stratford-on-Avon and is made up of four electoral wards. These wards are known as Alveston, Avenue and New Town, Mount Pleasant and Guild and Hathaway, and it is the total population of these four wards which is taken to give the population figure of Stratford-upon-Avon itself.
The population of Stratford-upon-Avon
According to the latest population data, from an estimate gathered in 2007, the total population of the aforementioned four wards, and therefore of Stratford-upon-Avon, numbered 25,505. What this tells us is that the town is indeed a major centre of population which is likely to have a busy and active nature.
Being such a major centre of population means that Stratford-upon-Avon enjoys a multitude of benefits such as a thriving local economy and an increased number of facilities and amenities to serve its residents. There are also downsides however, such as the fact that being busier and more densely populated inexorably leads to more accidents and injuries occurring. It is this, therefore, which makes us turn our attention to the issues surrounding the possibility of a negligence claim in Stratford-upon-Avon.
