What’s Happended So Far?
Pride in Camp Hill has had to be creative in it’s approach to funding as opportunities are limited. Althougth we are a community regeneration initiatve, being outside of a Former Coalfield Area or Major Urban Area we are excluded from attracting funding from the Neighbourhood Renewal and New Deal for Communities Programmes.
The project is also disadvantaged in terms of Coalfield Regeneration Trust funding, ESF and ERDF oppotunities as well as any National Lottery funding. As a consequence of these problems Pride in Camp Hill has relied heavily on partnership working and coming up with innovative solutions whenever possible. Some of the ways we have done this are shown below:
- Phase 1 – 172 new homes (including 25% affordable) built by Lovell.
- Phase 2 – on completion 232 new homes (including 33% affordable) built by Lovell.
- Phase 3 – on completion813 new homes (including 25% affordable) built by Barratts.
- Phase 4 – Midland Quarry development consisting of 3 hectares of mixed use development land which incorporates 58,000 square feet of b1/b2 industrial space.
- New Retail Centre – with Co op, Boots chemist, Hairess Hairdressing and Beauty, Post Office, Seven takeaway and Ladbrokes bookmakers, built by Lovell.
- New Camp Hill Education, Sports and Social Centre (CHESS) – built by Warwickshire County Council, opened in May 2007. The £1.9 million glass fronted building houses a community library, IT and learning facilities, youth area, hireable rooms and a recreation hall.
- Camp Hill Early Year’s Centre – now know as Camp Hill Childrens Centre. The centre provides multi faceted services to families with young children thanks to funding secured through the Learning and Skills Council.
- Private sector contributions – £122 millions pounds worth brought into Nuneaton and Bedworth.
