Hotel Call In Rugby Blueprint Talks

Business leaders in Rugby have been putting their heads together to come up with plans to improve the town centre.

Eighty delegates representing business, commerce and local interest groups came up with ideas to help the town thrive.

They have called for a hotel in the town centre and long-term tourist attractions.

Other areas earmarked for improvement at the meeting at the Benn Hall were the safety and security of the town centre, improving shops and leisure activities on offer and getting a big-name store.

The people at the meeting were given the results of a six-month review of the key factors affecting Rugby’s future.

Rugby Borough Council chief executive Diane Colley said the session had worked well, with the delegates splitting up into groups to focus on specific issues.

She said:

“Our objective is to produce another set of detailed action plans for both the short and the long term and to commit both the Council and the Town Centre Partnership to their achievement.

“The evening was a great success and with the level of commitment and interest clearly visible on the night, we can now move forward in partnership to make our town both vital and viable in the long-term.”

Town Centre Manager Robin Richter added:

“I was absolutely delighted with the turn-out and the focused and business-like approach adopted by all those who attended.

“We now have a solid brief and with the views of the general public, gathered via in-depth market research last year, we now have information we require to go forward with confidence.”
