The team at St. Philips have secured a draft allocation for 240 dwellings within the designated Green Belt at Cromwell Lane, Coventry.

We prepared a detailed critique of key evidence-based documents, from which a comprehensive suite of representations and promotional documents were produced and submitted to Coventry City Council in response to consultation on its emerging Local Plan.


St. Philips produced an objective assessment of the city’s housing need, researching and presenting technical evidence on landscape sensitivity, ecology and sustainability in order to construct a compelling case for the site’s release from the Green Belt.

We appointed a consultancy team in order to provide evidence to support dialogues with the Council, culminating in the draft allocation being secured in the submission version of the Local Plan. An outline planning application was also prepared and submitted in parallel with the commencement of the Examination in Public of the Local Plan.

In supporting St. Philips’ representation at the EiP hearings, the outline application served to demonstrate to the Inspector that the site was free from environmental and technical constraints, and capable of being delivered within the plan period.

The Local Plan was found to be sound by the Inspector, who has raised no concerns in relation to the allocation of the site.
