Three planning applications submitted for the comprehensive redevelopment of the former London Taxi Company manufacturing plant at Holyhead Road, Coventry.
Planning Prospects Ltd worked with the landowner and development partners, including Persimmon Homes and Tegama Ltd, to bring forward proposals for a high quality scheme comprising:
- demolition of the existing unsightly and deteriorating factory buildings following relocation of the London Taxi Company (now the London Electric Vehicle Company / LEVC) to a new facility in the City at Ansty;
- 107 new homes on a brownfield site, allocated for housing and in a highly sustainable location, close to Coventry City Centre; and
- a five storey extension to the existing Sytner Coventry BMW car storage building, enabling the existing established business to continue to grow and invest in the City.
Three separate applications were submitted concurrently, to enable each element to come forward at the earliest opportunity.
