Planning Summary: Coventry.gov.uk/localplan
The Coventry local plan embraces this growth and identifies land for new homes, new jobs, new retail and community uses. For the first time in over 50 years the Council is planning proactively for the removal of land from the city’s Green Belt to help facilitate growth and development as well as creating high quality urban and natural environments for those wishing to live and work in Coventry. This includes two significant urban extensions to the north and west of the city.
This growth will also be supported by new, high quality infrastructure to combat congestion and transport issues, provide new high quality public green spaces, continue to invest in the city’s ever-improving education system and enhance the health facilities and opportunities required to support all aspects of the city’s population.
Coventry is also a Gigabyte City and classed as a ‘living lab’ meaning it is continuing to support investment in its IT facilities and broadband connectivity as well as hosting a range of new and innovative technologies such as driverless cars.
