About our plans for CCS

A reserved matters application for Phase 1 of Coventry City Centre South has been submitted to Coventry City Council (‘CCC’) by The Hill Group and Shearer Property Group.

Designed by award-winning architects Allies & Morrison, Phase 1 will transform this quarter of the city centre with the delivery of:

  • 991 new homes ranging in size from studio to 3 bed homes and tenures including affordable homes, private for sale and build to rent
  • 200 of the homes will be affordable homes, the majority of which are social rented tenure
  • Over 8,000sqm of new commercial space
  • 17,000sqm of public open space


The proposals also include:

  • a new covered servicing yard for Coventry Retail Market
  • new pedestrian-friendly routes connecting this quarter to the city centre, Friargate and new Coventry Cultural Gateway Centre
  • Integration of existing and opportunities for new public art including the relocation/replicas of the Three Tuns and other William Mitchell artworks.
  • transport initiatives including cycle parking, new cycle hire docking stations, car club spaces and working with the CCC Very Light Railway


Further details of the scheme design are on the “CCS Phase 1” Tab.

SPRL continue to work closely with Coventry City Council and the West Midlands Combined Authority to bring forward this exciting regeneration of the city centre. Subject to approval of the detailed design for Phase 1, the project will start on site in early Summer 2024.
