Coventry Editorial 21st Apr, 2024   0

PLANNING has been approved for Nuneaton town centre for the Transforming Nuneaton Programme which will now see the next phase of the programme.

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council’s planning committee approved for Warwickshire County Council to start works on a new library and business centre as well as a 65 unit housing development.

The library and business centre will be built on the existing Royal Mail Delivery Office and will act as an economic anchor which will drive footfall through the town and deliver key services.

The housing development on the brownfield land was also approved and will be delivered as a partnership by Warwickshire Property and Development Group (WPDG) and the County Council.

This will be up to 65 family homes and a pocket park linking to Riversley Park.

Mark Ryder, executive director for communities at Warwickshire County Council said: “This is positive news and will create some real momentum as work gets underway to bring an outstanding new library for residents and a prime facility and location in which businesses can prosper.

“The residential development will benefit the town by providing much needed, high-quality homes, increasing town centre footfall, creating opportunities for businesses and employment with the subsequent boost to the town centre economy.”

Stuart Buckley, managing director of Warwickshire Property and Development Group, said the scheme will bring widespread benefits to the community and the local economy.

He added it will deliver much needed new homes for the town centre, space for businesses to grow and a high-quality facility for the community.
