Ann Summers has revealed a new plan for its Coventry city centre store. The lingerie and sex toy chain opened in the former home of Tessuti in Upper Precinct last year.

Now an application has been submitted to Coventry City Council to make a change to the shop. It is seeking the green light for the Listed Building Consent (LBC) for the removal of existing signage and replace with new illuminated signage and internal alterations.

Within the design and access statement in the application, it explains: "The signage change will retain the previous colour scheme of white letters on a black background resulting in little impact from that point of view.

"The proposed works will improve the economic and social surroundings of the Upper Precinct and improve the visible landscape through the addition of a vibrant, modern and lively commercial enterprise."

The application can be found on the city council's website, under the planning applications section, searching for reference PL/2024/0000884/LBC. The application is currently 'pending consideration'.

Whether the application is approved will be made by delegated decision at the city council.
