Abbotts Park is planned to be a new, sustainable residential district in Coventry city centre, connecting communities through the creation of the new linear park that will be at the heart of the new scheme. With funding from the West Midlands Combined Authority, we have invested in providing the landscaping first, creating a new eco- corridor in the heart of the city for the wider community to enjoy.
A hybrid planning application has been submitted which includes:
Up to 700 homes, including 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, duplexes and townhouses
A new local centre providing a convenience retail, office and amenity offering
20% affordable housing
Exemplar sustainability credentials increasing carbon efficiency by 40% above building regulations requirements
A landscape-led strategy, hiding car parking underneath the buildings allowing the new linear park to flow through the site
Cycle parking, access to a residents car club, and a green travel plan
The new Linear Park with the recreated Radford Brook and over 1,000 trees and saplings planted, runs through the centre of the scheme and connects under the ring road to the City Centre. The park is complete and is open to the public. It includes a children’s play area, a climbing wall and a feature ‘Zen Arch’ structure that crosses the brook.
