Transforming Nuneaton

Museum and Art Gallery

Warwickshire County Council (WCC) and Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council (NBBC) are working together to deliver the transformation of Nuneaton town centre, to achieve a mixed used regeneration proposal aimed at boosting economic growth in the town and providing new employment opportunities.

The Councils are looking to develop exciting new opportunities within the town centre, using publicly owned land to help support growth and work closely with private and public sector partners to ensure it meets the ambitions of the town.

Nuneaton - arial shot

The vision is to for the town centre to continue to be the primary local centre for shopping, leisure and business while also encouraging the highest quality mixed use, pedestrian friendly environment. Nuneaton Town Centre will be transformed into a vibrant, healthy, functioning space.

It will contain a diverse range of uses, with retailer representation from independent, national and specialist stores within an environment where businesses want to locate and invest in.

Ropewalk and surrounds

It will be a place where people spend their leisure time during the day and evening and will be attractive to people of all ages.

New mixed use development will complement the existing heritage assets and will further enhance the character of the town.

To achieve this WCC and NBBC are looking to engage with potential investors and developers who can help deliver this vision of change.

Nuneaton Town Centre

A traditional market town of walkable scale Nuneaton is the primary shopping location for the immediate catchment area of 125,000 residents and has the potential market of over 3 million people who live within 20 miles of the town.

With leading names including H&M, Next, Schuh and Top Shop the town has an excellent retail offer.

The River Anker runs right through the town centre before leading out southwards through extensive parklands, and to the north to the planned New Station Gateway.

A beautiful formal park stretches from the town centre to the outskirts of town hosting Nuneaton’s Museum and Art Gallery, Cafe and an innovative and exciting play area.

Strategic Location

Nuneaton - Strategic Location

Nuneaton benefits from its enviable location within the golden triangle of the M1, M6 and M42 and is situated between major urban centres such as Birmingham, Coventry and Leicester providing everything you could need from a location within easy reach. Superb road and rail links both to London and Birmingham, including the newly created Grand Central / New Street Station areas, as well as the new Friargate Business District in Coventry make Nuneaton an attractive proposition.

Pathways to Development

These are captured in the new Transforming Nuneaton Opportunities Brochure (PDF, 5.28 MB) this document complements the Investment Prospectus and really starts to demonstrate how the town can be developed and what the key uses could be.
