Wilkos store and Royal Mail office bought by council

The current home of Wilkinsons and the Royal Mail sorting office in Nuneaton town centre have been sold.

Warwickshire County Council has confirmed to CoventryLive that it has bought both buildings on Church Street.


Now the county council has confirmed what it was about - Wilkos and the nearby Royal Mail Nuneaton delivery office.

"A Warwickshire County Council spokesperson said: “We can confirm that the properties last Thursday’s cabinet paper referred to were those currently occupied by Royal Mail and Wilkos.

"WCC is currently working with them on their relocation in order to allow for the regeneration plans for this area of the town centre to be delivered."

It is no secret that the county council needs the land they both sit on as part of the wider plans to transform this part of town.

This includes a new almost £20m library and offices in the Vicarage Street/Church Street area.

Nuneaton's main library is also set to be bulldozed as part of the regeneration of the area.

Just had a quick look on Google Maps, it doesn't seem to be that big a building so probably not many walks. My guess is that they'll merge into a nearby DO

VERY IMPORTANT AND INFORMATIVE CORONAVIRUS THREAD HERE
It's good to get these types of threads, the ridiculous my manager said bollox so we can reassure ourselves that while the world is falling apart, Royal Mail managers are still being the low life c***s they have always been.

Probably also a width restriction as well now. The newer 600s are a bit wider than the older ones, don't think by much but for the odd DO locally it's just enough to stop a 600 from heading into the yard
