We’ve held a consultation on our updated regeneration plans for Spon End

We recently held a consultation for customers to showcase our updated plans for Spon End ahead of submitting the planning application later this summer.

We first announced our plan to transform and regenerate Spon End, Coventry, in 2019 and our initial ideas for the area were shared in 2022. At the time we held a consultation event to get customer feedback.

The plans include demolition of the below areas so we can build around 750 homes:

  • Kerry House / Milestone House / Trafalgar House
  • Spon Gate House
  • Grindlay House / Drinkwater House / George Poole House
  • Gardner House / Fennel House / Winslow House / Corrie House and Givens House
  • Wellington Gardens / Sherbourne Street and Upper Spon Street (85-99).

Since 2022, we have updated our plans to include customer feedback. These changes have included the re-siting of blocks further away from existing homes that will be retained and we have also provided more detail on the block design, proposals for the Wellington Gardens area and the green spaces.

Following the consultation event earlier this week, we will take customer feedback on board and plan to submit the application to Coventry City Council for planning later in the summer.

Our director of regeneration services Kevin Roach said: “The regeneration of Spon End is a major project for Citizen which will improve the area for our customers. We are planning to demolish blocks throughout Spon End and build around 750 homes.

“We have consulted our customers throughout the process so we know what is important to them and have adapted our plans to take their feedback on board. This feedback included the importance of green spaces in the area, so we have made sure this is incorporated in our development. We plan to enhance the area around the River Sherbourne and increase the amount and quality of green spaces on the Spon End estate.

“We held a consultation event earlier this week to get feedback from our customers on our current plans before they are submitted for planning permission later this summer.

“At Citizen we want to build homes that meet the needs of our region, and this includes demolishing homes that are no longer fit for purpose and building properties that are warmer, more comfortable and meet our customers’ needs.”

We plan to start the demolition of Kerry House, Milestone House and Trafalgar House in autumn 2024 and, subject to planning permission, will start construction of phase one in Spring 2025.
