    Default Revamp for Nuneaton Town Centre

    I don't know Nuneaton that well, but from the posts on WOL, it sounds like the town could do with this facelift: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan...shire-46178349

    Sounds a lot of money, but in reality it won't go far.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    I have never liked Nuneaton-it gives me uncomfortable nasty vibes. But- years ago it was quite a dirty miserable place.smelling of gas and decay.
    Now, the shopping area is modern - well-modern in a sense that it looks like everywhere else -Best two things about it is the excellent market....And the road out.
    I still get that feeling.

    My mum was born on Abbey Street.

    Seriously, does Nuneaton require a hotel in the position? There's plenty around the outskirts.

    Is the proposed hotel to house the migrants?
    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    That might not be the original purpose, Margaret, but it could well end up being the case!

    The words 'behind closed doors' never resonate well with me.

    I suspect the council didn't get the best end of the deal.
