Everything you need to know
Does The Council support your vision?
It has long been an ambition of Coventry City Council to redevelop this site and we are working in partnership with them on these proposals.
Will you need Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) powers to deliver this scheme?
The Council has confirmed it will be assembling the site and is willing to use CPO powers where necessary. This will only happen once planning is granted and The Council will engage with landowners and occupiers within the site in due course.
Will businesses need to close to allow the development to happen?
We will work closely with all businesses to support them before and during the development process and will be in touch in due course.
What is going to happen to the Three Tuns mural?
As part of the development strategy, the Three Tuns Grade II-listed William Mitchell mural will be removed from its current location during the demolition phase and permanently accommodated within an appropriate alternative location. As it is panelised, it is easy to remove and relocate. We will discuss this with The Council and stakeholders before any changes take place.
Where is the Shopmobility facility being relocated to?
We are working with The Council in Shopmobility to identify the most convenient location and will ensure this is next to adjacent car parking facilities.
What funding do you have in place currently?
Coventry City Council has secured a £98.8m grant from the West Midlands Combined Authority towards the cost of the scheme.
What is the anticipated construction cost?
Our anticipated construction cost is in the order of £350m.
What are the socio-economic benefits?
There will be 1,100-1,400 new jobs for local people, with up to 620 additional construction jobs created throughout the duration of the project.
Why is this consultation virtual?
Shearer Property Group has been liaising closely with Coventry City Council on the proposals and is keen to engage further with local community groups and the wider community as the proposals move forward. However, due to the current government restrictions on public gatherings and the requirement for some people to self-isolate, our consultation process has been designed to take advantage of the benefits of digital technology.
How will you respond to feedback?
Once feedback has been collated, The Council and the project team will review all of it and, where appropriate, seek to incorporate it into the design.
