The Meriden

We’re working to improve and regenerate the Meriden estate with a development programme which will enhance the area for residents and communities. The project represents a £36 million investment, £4.4 million of which was funded directly from government grants.

In the initial stages of the project, we met with key stakeholders such as the residents of bungalows, the Friends of Meriden, the Meriden Residents' Association and ward councillors to provide an overview of the delivery of the scheme.

We’ll be developing 133 newly built homes, an expanded community hub, a flexicare facility for older people, a brand new parade of shops and new green spaces.

Split into two phases, the works will cover the central area of the Meriden. Phase one will see the development of the retail block and the first of the new residences, including bungalows and houses. Phase two will focus on the flexicare facility.
