Address: Abbotts Lane Former Gas Works and Linea Park, Coventry West Midlands CV1 4AY United Kingdom

Size: 13.6 acres plus 2.5 acres park (5.5 ha residential site plus 1 ha park) 
Planning use: Over 700 apartments and 700 sqm commercial space 
Developer: Complex Development Projects Ltd
Planning authority: Coventry City Council

Location:

The site is situated immediately north of Coventry City Centre accessed off Abbotts Lane with a secondary access road off Upper Hill Street to the south west and occupies a prominent and highly visible location adjoining the Coventry inner ring road (A4053) and is situated in a mixed use area comprising traditional terraced houses, some commercial uses and a community fire station. It is located within walking distance of Coventry City Centre and is approximately 0.6 miles to the west of Coventry University.

Description:

  • An outline planning application has been submitted to Coventry City Council to build more than 700 apartments on land at Abbotts Lane.
  •  The £100 million scheme will create a new residential area in a highly sustainable location, providing quality accommodation to rent and buy.
  •  The development includes a central landscape water feature following the route of the culverted Radford Brook providing a linea park through the site. Central facilities will be located alongside the ‘park’.

 CDP has been working closely with Coventry City Council and other stakeholders to bring forward wider plans to extend the route to the north to Naul’s Mill Park and south to the Belgrade Plaza, improving the permeability of the area which is currently largely inaccessible by foot.
