Welcome to Coventry. A great city with a rich history, it offers a fantastic quality of life. It’s a place we think that you can be proud to call home.
Coventry is one of the best places to live in the UK, according to a national survey last year. Our city was ranked 28th (beating Birmingham, London and Sheffield) out of 138 places across the UK – up from 64th in 2013. It’s official. Coventry is getting better and better. And there are lots of reasons why.
Our city has seen a lot of great changes in the last two years. Continuing to attract external investment creating more jobs for local people, Coventry was recently named one of the top 10 cities in the country for rising employment and business growth - and one of only four cities outside the south east where people can earn above the national average.
A multi-million pound regeneration scheme has seen lots of physical changes too. The city centre has become greener and more pedestrian friendly, all while benefiting from improvements to its transport links. There are more new and vibrant places to shop, eat and enjoy the culture and night life our city has to offer. And work is still going on.
So, things are clearly getting better in our city. But what about the Council?
Headed by Chief Executive, Martin Reeves, the Council is committed to improving the quality of life for residents and making Coventry a top 10 city. We’re bringing in new, streamlined ways of working and making more use of technology to deliver services to the people who live and work in our city.
The future is looking brighter for Coventry and its residents – and we're proud to be at the heart of it all.
