Warwickshire County Council (WCC) and Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council (NBBC) are working to deliver the Transforming Nuneaton Programme (TNP). This is a suite of projects that, together, will provide Nuneaton with the economic boost it needs and help it become a strong hub for its community. Investment in the town centre will be sought to improve:
- leisure and business opportunities
- education and skills
- unlocking housing development
- rail, highway and cycle infrastructure
This will support economic growth within the borough and wider area whilst ensuring that the town helps reduce its impact on climate change.
The vision is to transform Nuneaton into a prosperous town centre. A town where people choose to:
- Live – with high quality, easily accessible town centre housing and a strong and diverse leisure offer
- Do Business – with excellent transport connections and high-quality office space for all entrepreneurs
- Shop – with a mix of national, independent and specialist retailers
- Visit – through the creation of high-quality public realm and enhancing the heritage and cultural opportunities
A thriving cultural and leisure offer anchored with new entertainment facilities, vibrant food and beverage provision and social opportunities that supports and enhances the existing offer.
A new residential offer within the town centre with excellent connections to employment and leisure opportunities, which supports the new leisure and retail offer.
A new economic base for businesses; taking advantage of key local opportunities including the growth taking place at Horiba-MIRA Technology Park and at Bermuda Park Employment Site.
A well connected town with direct links to the rest of the Coventry and Warwickshire sub-region, Birmingham, London, Manchester, and Leicester supported through an infrastructure improvement plan for highways and rail.
A place where the community can come together, a hub for all, with opportunities for social, learning and commercial activities.
A skilled and educated workforce with high aspirations for the future, focussing on key growth areas enabling employers to recruit locally.
