New town centre development

Work is set to start on a Nuneaton town centre retirement development which will support local employment and breathe new life to the north side of town.

The development is being built on the site of the Council’s Church Street car park and forms part of the ambitious Transforming Nuneaton programme. It will create some fifty retirement living apartments, contributing to an increase of residential developments in town.

Church Street car park will close on 6 January, ready for the removal of equipment and hand over to the developers, McCarthy and Stone on 8 January.

Cllr Julie Jackson, Leader of Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council said:

“This is an exciting development that will transform a prominent site within Nuneaton town centre. It will improve the look of the area and also bring new people to live in the town.

“This heralds yet another wonderful milestone on our Transforming Nuneaton journey and takes us forward in achieving the ambitious vision we have for the town.”

Cllr Izzy Seccombe, Leader of Warwickshire County Council said:

“The Transforming Nuneaton programme is now well underway, with this latest project starting soon after the completion of improvements at Coton Arches roundabout.

“There are exciting times ahead for Nuneaton and these early projects mark the start of an ambitious programme that will help the town reach its full potential.”

A spokesperson at McCarthy and Stone said:

“Our development will deliver substantial economic benefits to Nuneaton, as residents of retirement living schemes prefer to shop locally and often on a daily basis, bringing additional spending to the town centre, improving local vibrancy. The development will also act as a catalyst for further regeneration and investment in the town centre, further contributing to its overall long-term sustainability.”
