Following a successful three-week digital public consultation brought forward by Redwood Consulting, Shearer Property Group has submitted its outline planning application for a large scale regeneration project in Coventry, with a decision expected early next year.

Currently at an outline stage, these proposals set out to create a new focal point, City Centre South, for all of Coventry’s communities to come together, as well as drawing in visitors, with inviting new public realm and accessible events space at its heart. There will be a dynamic leisure offer including cinema, restaurants, co-working space, space for community alongside a variety of different shopping outlets. The plans will bring forward a significant number of new, quality homes for local people to rent or buy and space for a hotel.  This scheme will be one of the most significant opportunities for regeneration and investment the city has seen for decades.

Guy Shearer at Shearer Property Group, said:

“Despite these very challenging times, I am delighted that we are now bringing this long-awaited regeneration scheme forward for approval.

“We continue to work closely on City Centre South with Coventry City Council and today marks another important milestone in the process bringing us closer to finally delivering a transformation of this large strategic site in the heart of the city centre.”
