Be-Nu plans move on despite lockdown

Residents’ feedback on exciting plans to transform Nuneaton and Bedworth as a leisure destination is published this week, as the plans themselves continue to make good progress.

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council have pulled together project teams to work on transforming the borough’s leisure centres in Bedworth and at Pingles, Nuneaton.

Residents were asked for their views early in 2020, and the feedback report is published this week.

Detailed proposals for the multi-million pound developments are being worked on now, with a replacement for Bedworth Leisure Centre the top priority.

The leisure centres stand in the borough’s two destination parks, Miners’ Welfare Park in Bedworth and Riversley Park in Nuneaton, and as plans for the buildings make progress, so are proposals for improvements to the parks themselves.

The council is re-launching the Be-Nu website, to publish more information about the programme of developments, and the consultation report from last year’s engagement.

Further plans will be published in the site as the projects continue to make progress.

Ian Lloyd, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council portfolio holder for arts and leisure, said:

“We were thrilled with the outcome of the consultation held last year, and grateful for all the feedback we received. Now we have the chance to feedback on that consultation and an update on the next stages of the work to be done.

“We are working hard despite lockdown to progress proposals to transform our leisure centres at Bedworth and the Pingles, as well as ensuring we consider how best to bring even more life to our excellent destination parks in which the existing leisure centres stand. We also recognise the importance of this exciting programme of investment also linking to improvements in leisure facilities here in our borough.”

The proposals also go hand in hand with exciting work to improve the borough’s two town centres.
