Ambitious plans for our town centres
Labour run Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council has been working closely with local partners to create a prospectus for the Transforming Nuneaton programme, which proposes a long term investment strategy to regenerate Nuneaton town centre.
In addition to this exciting news for town centre regeneration in Nuneaton, there is a strong desire to further build on the improvements in Bedworth that have taken place over the last year.
The ultimate aim is to give a much needed boost to older and disused parts of our town centres. With this in mind, NBBC has successfully purchased the Co-op’s former department store in Abbey Street.
Cllr Julie Jackson, the leader of NBBC, said ”After years of work behind the scenes we are excited and delighted to present this ambitious programme for town centre regeneration. We are strongly committed to making our town centres the best they can be. The nature of shopping has changed, and our towns need to adapt to this.
”With the purchase of the old Co-op department store in Abbey Street, we are paving the way for the redevelopment of a key part of Nuneaton town centre. Positive discussions with our partners are moving forward for Bedworth as we aim to commission an independent document looking at its future possibilities. We will aim high for both of our towns”
Julie Jackson added: ”Labour councillors have been working closely with local partners to develop fresh ideas to reinvigorate the local community. We want to see more independent restaurants and cafes, and to bring a nightlife to Nuneaton and Bedworth town centres. Labour is committed to bringing investment to our borough.”
