More than 700 homes have been earmarked for development on the former Courtaulds site off Foleshill Road in Coventry.

Developers, Persimmon Homes South Midlands, are investing £65 million on the project.

Phase one will see 113 properties built, after Persimmon was granted planning permission earlier this month.

“This is an area which has become derelict and needs investment.

We are building more than 1,100 new homes across four sites in Coventry all together, which proves our long-term commitment to the city.”

– Andy Peters, Managing Director for Persimmon Homes South Midlands
