Hundreds of ideas submitted for major Nuneaton consultation

"There have been some very interesting and thought-provoking responses and we are looking forward to discussing them in more detail and finding out all about projects."
Sean Farnell

A major consultation to help aid Nuneaton win a share of millions of pounds worth of Government funding has been inundated with responses.

The town is one of 100 across the country that has been selected to bid for funding from the Government’s Towns Fund initiative.

There is up to £25 million available for each town to help with projects that will deliver transformation to towns across England as part of the Government’s commitment to ‘level up’ all regions across the country.  

In order to compete for the funding, a bid needs to be created which will include a list of projects and residents were asked to share their views in the first wave of consultation.

More than 250 ideas have been submitted to the campaign and now they are being assessed before being shortlisted.

Ideas included suggested improvements to the road system around Nuneaton, improvements to the park and increasing other leisure activities, improved cycling and pedestrian routes, increasing opportunities for training and apprenticeships and improvements to the digital network.

A Town Deal Board - made up of business representatives, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Councillors, Warwickshire County Councillors and representatives from the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership, Warwickshire CAVA, the health sector and community – has been created to bring a funding bid together.

Sean Farnell, Chair of the Nuneaton Town Deal Board, is thrilled with how many people got involved with the first part of the consultation.

“Firstly, the board would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that got involved with the first stage of the consultation,” Sean said.

“There have been some very interesting and thought-provoking responses and we are looking forward to discussing them in more detail and finding out all about projects.

“Once we have formed a shortlist of the projects, we will reveal them and put them out to consultation again for members of the public to share their views on them.

“This is a chance to shape the future of Nuneaton, so please keep supporting this and help us create the best bid possible to submit to the Government.”

Projects need to relate to six key areas - local transport, digital connectivity, urban regeneration, arts, culture and heritage, skills, and enterprise – to qualify for the funding.

Shortlisted projects will be revealed in a second round of consultation and then a plan of action, called a Town Investment Plan, will be drawn up to submit for the Government funding later in the year.
