Plans for pounds 25,000 facelift for old clinic; BOROUGH AIMS TO TURN BUILDING INTO BASE FOR 'URBAN VILLAGE' SCHEME.

A DECISION will be made in two weeks on plans to give a former clinic on a Nuneaton estate a pounds 25,000 facelift.

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council chiefs want to see the old clinic in Ramsden Avenue, Camp Hill, converted into the Camp Hill project office, as part of the "urban village" development.

Talks have already been held with Warwickshire NHS Trust, which owns the building, with a view to leasing it out to the borough council on a temporary six-month contract.

Some changes were made to the scheme and a plan has now been passed to the borough council's Single Regeneration Budget (SRB) committee for review.

The development will now continue once a parking space has been allocated for disabled users near to the building.

Chris Garden, head of regeneration for Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, said: "Amendments have been made to the original plan and they are now in place.

"Plans are moving along nicely and we feel the refurbishment to the old clinic will be worthwhile and that it will be an ideal base for the project office.

"The availability of the property represents a really opportunity to ensure that the site is redeveloped in a way that compliments and adds value to the project."

The building is in a prominent position at the corner of Cedar Road and Ramsden Avenue, an area which will be at the heart of the "urban village".

Borough council officers hope a number of projects will be funded using the SRB resources and that the community will have use of the building.

Mr Garden, added: "A written review has been carried out by the SRB and we can confirm that we have had no written objections."

Approval is expected to be given at the planning and development committee on Monday.
