Work to transform a Grade-II listed United Reformed Church into a modern office space has officially started.
The project – which is part of a wider regeneration programme – will see the building, based in Leamington’s Old Town, restored and converted into office space for creative and digital businesses complete with break-out spaces and office ‘pods’.
Regeneration specialists Complex Development Projects (CDP) will deliver the scheme which also includes work to two further buildings facing Spencer Yard.

The adjoining former nursery will be refurbished and extended to provide more usable flexible office space while the dole office will also get a top floor extension to provide space for smaller businesses.
The works are being undertaken as part of a funding package which includes a grant from the government’s Future High Streets Fund.
Neil O’Brien MP, minister for levelling up, the union and constitution, said: “It’s fantastic that restoration work is beginning to transform historic Spencer Yard.
“Leamington is already a thriving hub for creative and digital industries and this project will draw more companies and investment into the town.
“We are investing in impressive local projects like this which provide opportunity, boost local economies, and help communities build back better as we level up the nation.”

Councillor Andrew Day, leader of Warwick District Council, said: “This is a watershed moment, and we are excited at the prospect of seeing the long-awaited transformation of an underutilised area into a vibrant and innovative hub for our creative and digital industries.
“However, this is just the start of an ambitious Creative Quarter vision which will bring our town the massive boost and far-reaching recognition it deserves.”
Katie Burn, senior development executive at CDP, added: “Our consultation showed there was a shortage of space for the digital creative sector to expand or locate within the town and it’s a key industry in Leamington with 10 per cent of the UK’s gaming sector working in the area.
“It is great to be finally starting construction work after many months of preparation.
“Demand is strong from occupiers and we are already talking to businesses that will bring jobs to the town and boost the local economy.”
