Plans to transform a former ex-servicemen’s club in Rugby into a restaurant and apartments have been revealed.
The RADEA Club, in Castle Street, looks set to be given a new lease of life as property developers plan to convert the ground floor into a brand new restaurant with four modern apartments above. A planning application is in the process of being submitted to Rugby Borough Council, and property developer Kulwinder Bath hopes the project will be completed by next summer if permission is granted.
Kulwinder was assisted in the purchase of the ex-servicemen’s club by commercial property company D&P Holt. He said: “The ex-servicemen’s club is in the heart of Rugby town centre which makes it the perfect location for a new restaurant and four modern, spacious apartments. Our plans feature three one-bed and one two-bed apartments which are close to local amenities and transport links. Rugby is a thriving town which is just a short train journey away from London, making it a suitable location not just for those who work in the town but also for commuters.
We have been working closely with Rugby Borough Council throughout the planning process, and if our application is approved the apartments will be ready to rent and the restaurant available to let by next summer.
D&P Holt have been very supportive throughout the whole process and we hope to work with them again in the future.”
Luke Hedderwick, at D&P Holt, said: “It’s great to see buildings being brought back into use, and if planning permission is granted the ex-servicemen’s club will undergo a huge transformation. New homes are very much in demand so the development is sure to be welcomed. The new restaurant will also be a great addition to the town.
We are very pleased that we have been able to play a part in helping Kulwinder and his team get this project underway.”
