We’re working with Countryside Partnerships to deliver 247 new homes in Coventry

More than 240 new homes will be built in western Coventry as part of our collaboration with Countryside Partnerships.

The development, called Pickford Gate, will deliver 247 new homes which will be made up of 140 affordable homes managed by us and 107 outright sale properties.

Final planning consents have now been secured for the 31-acre site which is three miles west of the city centre. The development is also the first phase of the wider Eastern Green scheme, a sustainable urban extension on the western side of Coventry that received outline planning permission in 2021.

The Eastern Green scheme is a 353-acre site which will see 2,400 homes built and 25 percent of these will be affordable. A new primary school, district and local community centres, a transport hub and extensive open spaces and play facilities will also be created as part of the scheme. Two new dedicated busways will also connect it to Coventry City Council’s wider bus network.

Our executive director of development Nick Byrne said: “We’re really pleased to be working with Countryside Partnerships on another development in the West Midlands which will bring more affordable homes to the western side of Coventry.

“At Citizen we are committed to working with our partners, including Countryside Partnerships, to make a positive difference to our customers by developing homes that are needed.

“We’re looking forward to work starting on Pickford Gate and bringing new homes to this area of Coventry.”

Divisional managing director at Countryside Partnerships Midlands, Adam Daniels, said: “We’re proud to be working with Citizen to provide much-needed, high-quality new homes for the Coventry area.

“This exceptional development will provide new amenities including community centres and a new school, making Pickford Gate a place in which people can thrive as part of a flourishing new community.”
