Nuneaton redevelopment gets green light for next phase

Vicarage Street

The Transforming Nuneaton programme now has outline planning permission for the next phase of the redevelopment.

Last night, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council’s Planning Committee approved Warwickshire County Council’s plans for a new library, business centre, and up to 65 housing units.

The mixed-use development is a step in the wider Transforming Nuneaton program, aiming to rejuvenate the town.

Replacing the Royal Mail Delivery Office, the new library and business centre will serve as a hub for residents and businesses, driving foot traffic and offering essential services.

Additionally, the housing development on adjacent brownfield land, a partnership between Warwickshire Property and Development Group (WPDG) and the County Council, will include family homes and a park connecting 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.”

Deputy chief executive at Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, Tom Shardlow, said: “Approval of this planning proposal is great news for the regeneration of Nuneaton town centre. This development will bring new homes and businesses into the town centre and will complement the exciting development at Grayson Place. This council looks forward to working closely with the county council and our other partners to make this development a reality.”
