Numerous changes have taken place to transform Coventry's public spaces, with £57m invested in the city since 2011, and £10m+ in 2021. This has resulted in significant private sector investment in public realm schemes and commercial developments, creating a lighter, greener and more inviting city centre. 

As Coventry celebrated being UK City of Culture 2021, parts of the city centre were heavily revamped to create a lasting legacy for the city, retaining the best of the old alongside the best of the new.
