Abbotts Lane CGI
An outline planning application has been submitted to Coventry City Council to build more than 700 apartments on land at Abbotts Lane.
CDP acquired the 5.5 acre site from National Grid in 2017, and has been working with West Midlands Combined Authority and Coventry City Council on the project which will regenerate the brownfield site that has been vacant since 2012.
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 linear 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.
