There are important changes happening to your towns, parks and leisure facilities and this is your chance to have a say and tell us what YOU actually want!

Following careful proposals two years in the making, a public consultation on the plans and designs for our TOWNS, PARKS and LEISURE facilities in both Nuneaton and Bedworth is now open. 

The plans outline so many fantastic new developments for you and your families to enjoy, which will offer excellent service facilities to meet future demands for many years to come. From building new schools and a modern leisure centre as well as developing more green spaces that will help children and adults to be more healthy, happy and sociable. Plus, there will be some stunning enhancements to the two main Borough destination parks, as well as a fresh new look for our towns with enhanced town centres that are thriving and exciting to visit to boost the appeal of our Borough. 

In order to achieve our aspirations we need your help, so that together we can build a more vibrant and thriving community for all.

You can have your say either face to face or online, if you wish to participate online, you can complete a short survey on each (or just one) of the town, park and leisure facility proposals in Nuneaton or Bedworth by visiting www.be-nu.co.uk

If you prefer to talk to someone face to face, consultations will be taking place in the town centres as follows:
