Many residents will have noticed that finally the old Crazy Daisy’s nightclub site, which for many years had been a burnt down Chinese restaurant, has been cleared. Seven new houses will be placed on the site.
Crazy Daisies has long been a concern due to the dangers on the site, and prospects for anti-social behaviour. Clearly removing the eyesore is a victory for all local residents.
This has not been an easy victory. Policies to facilitate the renewal of the site were slow in coming forward. It required the initiation of a Rugby District Derelict Buildings Committee by myself and another councillor. The committee has facilitated closer working by bring together the Planning, Building control, Police, Fire, Environmental Health and community safety teams to find workable solutions.
The development of the nearby bob’s Café site, in 2014, heralded the beginning of the roadside improvement of the A45. My next project is to see resolution of the problematic Old Bull and Butcher pub site, on the junction of the Oxford Road and Freeboard Lane. I will keep the village updated on this matter.
