New bid to build on derelict site of old Labour club.

A FRESH bid is being made to build homes on wasteland which was once the site of Bedworth Labour Club.

The land in Chapel Street has been derelict since the club ceased trading and was demolished about 15 years ago. Since then, there has been a succession of fruitless planning applications submitted to Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council.

Six years ago, developers Bains Property submitted blueprints for 22 houses and nine flats, and another for nine houses and 19 flats.

Both applications were rejected by borough councillors. A third, scaled-down application for six houses and 19 flats, also failed to win backing, as did a plan lodged earlier this year to build nine houses and 10 flats.

Now, a fresh planning application has been lodged at the town hall scaling down the proposal even further to 16 houses and no flats.

Ludgate Homes Ltd has submitted the plans, which will be considered by the borough council's planning committee.
