In 2019 we announced our plans to invest and transform Spon End, following what our customers told us was important to them at our Planning for Real Consultation Event.

In 2020 we started the rehousing of customers living in Kerry House, Milestone House, and Trafalgar House as part of our initial plans.

During this time, we’ve also been developing our proposals to respond to what our customers told us was important to them and what they think we need to do to improve their community.

In May 2022, we shared our vision for the wider Spon End area through a consultation event held at Coventry Ruby Club.  You can find more information about this event under ‘Our Proposed Plans’ below.

Over the last three years we’ve been working closely with our customers in Kerry, Milestone and Trafalgar House to help them with their move to a new home. After our initial consultation event, we’ve been further developing our proposals for the area.

On 13 May 2024 we held a second consultation event at Coventry Rugby Club, to share our more detailed proposals before a planning application is submitted in Summer 2024.

View our updated proposals that were presented at the consultation event on 13 May 2024.

Take a look at areas 1, 2 and 3 and our proposals to improve the River Sherbourne and open space and tell us your views by completing the feedback form below by Tuesday 28 May.

• Kerry House / Milestone House / Trafalgar House

• Spon Gate House

Consultation events

On 18 May 2022 we held a consultation event for the community at Coventry Rugby Club, to share our vision and proposed plans for Spon End. It was an opportunity for the community to give their feedback on our initial proposals and to help us shape our plans in more detail.

 

On 13 May 2024 we held a second consultation event at Coventry Rugby Club, to share our more detailed proposals before a planning application is submitted in Summer 2024. You can take a look at our full proposal plans here.

Our commitment

We will, in conjunction with the community, develop a Residents Charter. The charter will set out the key objectives, principles, and commitments to the community for the redevelopment of the area, which will include:

  • Commitment to consult, engage and involve the local community, stakeholders, schools, and businesses on the development and implementation of the regeneration proposals
  • Commitment to establish a Residents and Stakeholders Group
  • Commitment to creating a Community Fund to support local projects, employment and training opportunities
  • Commitment to a minimum of 30% of the new homes being affordable
  • Commitment that residents requiring rehousing will have first choice on moving to the new affordable homes that are built
  • Commitment to phasing residential developments to minimise the need for residents to move more than once
  • Commitment to the development of rehousing and future purchase options for leaseholders
  • Commitment to respecting residents views on the redevelopment proposals

The next steps and milestones are:
