About Coventry

Coventry is a city with exciting times ahead. We are a city at the heart of the country – in more ways than one – and a city that has continually reinvented itself over the years to rise to fresh challenges.

We are a city that has gone from being the birthplace of the motor car to leading the way in driverless technology; one that has gone from ribbon weaving to ultrafast broadband, and one that is now ready for the next stage in its long and proud history.

We are home to award-winning universities and famous brands such as Jaguar and Severn Trent; a part of the ‘Midlands-Engine’; and a proud multicultural city, known around the world for our work in peace and reconciliation.

We are a city with an inspiring, world-famous history and a bright future as we strengthen our bid to be UK City of Culture 2021. We are home to top sport with the Wasps and the Sky Blues, concerts by stars such as Take That and Bruce Springsteen and fantastic events like the Godiva Festival and Motofest.

And to cap it all we’re massively proud to be named UK City of Culture for 2021.

So, things are clearly getting better in our city. But what about the Council?

Headed by Chief Executive, Martin Reeves, the Council is committed to improving the quality of life for residents and making Coventry a great city to live, work, invest and play. We’re bringing in new, streamlined ways of working and making more use of technology to deliver services to the people who live and work in our city.

The future is looking brighter for Coventry and its residents – and we're proud to be at the heart of it all.
