Located in a strategically important location close to the railway station and the Friargate Business District, City Centre South will deliver an ambitious multi-million pound mixed-use urban regeneration scheme transforming both the quality of Coventry’s residential, retail and wider city centre offer and the surrounding physical environment/public realm.

Coventry City Council has secured a £98.8m grant from West Midlands Combined Authority to support the scheme and is also providing an additional £32.75m of grant funding itself. The Compulsory Purchase Order for the scheme was confirmed in April 2023.


The outline planning consent, alongside a S73 Minor Material Amendment Consent in January 2023, sets out minimum and maximum development parameters for residential, commercial and other uses, provides the platform for the delivery of transformational benefits, including the delivery of a range of homes and a new vibrant shopping and leisure experience within a significantly enhanced public realm environment. This will lead to the creation of many hundreds of new permanent jobs.


Shearer Property Regen Ltd is leading the project and working in partnership with Coventry City Council and West Midlands Combined Authority.
