Labour playing catch-up on plans to regenerate Town Centre

The opposition group at the Town Hall have welcomed news that Labour are to begin the steps to revitalise our Town Centre by purchasing the former Co-Op building.

At the local elections last May, Conservatives pledged an ambitious sum of up to £30mil in investment to show our commitment to the regeneration of Nuneaton’s town centre and provide a desperately needed boost the local economies in both Nuneaton and Bedworth.

Commenting, Cllr Clare Golby (Arbury), Deputy Leader of the Conservative Group said that: “Throughout the last local election campaign, Labour mocked our party’s plans, to kick-start the redevelopment of our town centre with an ambitious plan that would have brought together a wide variety of stakeholders.

“It’s good to see action finally starting to be taken, no matter how overdue it is.

“Whilst we have had discussions with council officers about the building’s future, which includes the possibility of demolition, Conservatives have been clear: we have lost lots of significant buildings in the town, like the Co-Op Hall and going forward there is a need to preserve as much of the historical and significant architectural features of the buildings we have left as possible.”
