Phase 2 – the Vibrant Village Heart of Camp Hill
Phase 2 will be the heart of Camp Hill with friendly and inclusive community spaces, busy retail spaces and green modern residential spaces.
The community spaces in the Village Centre, with the CHESS building at the heart, are where local people can get involved with the community, make new friends and expand interests.
Camp Hill Education, Sports and Social Centre (CHESS)
Camp Hill’s CHESS Building is a real community hub. Opened in November 2007, it was jointly funded by Warwickshire County Council, the Learning and Skills Council (now closed), Advantage West Midlands (now closed) and Pride in Camp Hill. On the first floor there is a sports hall, youth area, music room, kitchen and meeting room, all of which are available for hire. There are facilities for many activities including cooking, music, pool and art. Upstairs you will find an IT suite, two conference suites, counselling room, another kitchen and a much valued community library, all of which are, again, available for hire. The library is a real boon for the area as so many libraries in the Warwickshire area have recently closed.
Many local groups have taken advantage of the space offered at the CHESS building such as the Over 50s Luncheon Club, the Fit and Hearty Group, Short Matt Bowls Group and the Nuneaton Ukulele Jam Band. If you would like to find out more about what’s going on at the CHESS Centre click on the link above or call 024 7675 7100.
The village centre retail space has various opportunities for residents to take care of their needs such as filling their empty stomachs, stocking up on their shopping or getting their hair cut. Some of the businesses on offer are Boots Chemist, Hairess Hairdressing and Royal Beauty, Seven General Stores and Post Office, Seven Chip Shop, Copper Beech Cafe and Ladbrookes the bookmakers.
The residential spaces are split into two parts: Renaissance and Eton View, both delivered by Lovell Partnerships. Renaissance consists of 232 homes and Eaton View 59.
