Making more of your city

Making more of your city stamp

We have secured grant funding from the West Midlands Combined Authority and the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership to invest in the city centre to ensure we create a legacy for local people after the city has welcomed the world for its year as City of Culture in 2021.

Building on the work already competed, we will retain the best of the old alongside the best of the new.

Numerous changes have already taken place to transform Coventry's public spaces, with £57m invested in the city since 2011, and an estimated £10m+ by 2021. This has resulted in significant private sector investment in public realm schemes and commercial developments. 

Works already taken place include:

  • Broadgate
  • Cathedral Lanes turned into restaurant area (Wagamama, Las Iguanas, Cosy Club, The Botanist, Bistrot Pierre and MOD Pizza have occupied the space, with more to come).
  • One Friargate building and the bridge deck demolition
  • The Wave's construction - £36m water park, award-winning leisure offer
  • Nationwide building demolition - opening the space into Broadgate and Hertford Street
