Lord Mayor of Coventry cuts the ribbon to new century park redevelopment
A development of more than 380 new homes on the former Marconi Works at New Century Park in Coventry was officially opened to the public by the Lord Mayor of Coventry on Saturday 12th January 2013.
Copsewood from housebuilder David Wilson Homes and St Michael’s Grange from Barratt Homes will breathe new life into this derelict site off Brindle Avenue.
Over 400 people came along to the event to get a glimpse of the plans for the homes. Visitors were able to enjoy drinks and nibbles and had the chance to reserve their preferred home off plan at either of the two developments.
“We’re delighted that the Lord Mayor of Coventry, Councillor Tim Sawdon was able to join us at the weekend.” commented Steve Barton Sales Manager for David Wilson Mercia. “With construction work now well underway I am pleased that we have been able to officially open the developments to the public.”
Graydon Worthing, Sales Director for Barratt West Midlands added, “With literally hundreds of people visiting we’re confident this will be the start of two very successful developments.”
Lord Mayor of Coventry, Councillor Tim Sawdon said, “It’s great to see this important site put back to good use. The redevelopment of New Century Park is energising the local workforce and bringing new work, contracts and skills to Coventry. It’s good to see that homes and people are at the top of the agenda and I am proud to have been a part of this occasion.”
The new homes are part of the redevelopment of the 26 acre former Marconi Works that will transform the area into a sustainable new community.
The two housebuilders will bring a total of 381 homes to the area. The Barratt development, St Michael’s Grange, will provide 216 two, three and four bedroom houses whilst Copsewood by David Wilson will consist of 165 two, three and four bedroom properties.
