Coventry cultural gateway among 29 new West Midlands schemes

Coventry Editorial 28th May, 2023   0

RE-DEVELOPMENT schemes coming to the West Midlands and surrounding towns have been announced.

The 29 Schemes listed include the large scale regeneration of town and city centres, office and residential development, including affordable housing to help local people secure good quality homes for rent or purchase.

The schemes include development of Coventry City Centre Cultural Gateway, Solihull Town Centre including Eastgate and Rugby Town Centre.

During a visit to The Junction – a new housing development on the site of a derelict foundry on the outskirts of Oldbury town centre.

Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, said the prospectus offered investors an exciting opportunity to help drive transformational change across the region.

“More and more major national and indeed global players are recognising the investment opportunities on offer here in our region.

“This Investment Prospectus comes on the back of last summer’s hugely successful Commonwealth Games as well as the new Deeper Devolution Deal this March where we secured £1.5 billion of new funding from the Government.”

Work has commenced on all sites featured in the 2018 prospectus, which included landmark projects such as Friargate in Coventry and the UK Central Hub and HS2 Interchange project in Solihull, with many of them now built.
