BOOM, BOOM COVENTRY! Double dose of good news has city set for take-off.

Byline: By Stephen Hallmark and Dayle Crutch low

A JOBS bonanza heading for Coventry was today creating huge excitement in the city.

The Evening Telegraph revealed yesterday (right) how major new developments could bring 4,000 jobs to the city.

And today business chiefs, city council officials and MPs hailed the plans as a massive boost for Coventry's future.

Louise Bennett, chief executive of the powerful Chamber of Commerce, described the news as a testament to Coventry and Warwickshire and its skilled workers.

And city MP Geoffrey Robinson hailed it as fantastic news.

The jobs boom involves luxury car maker Jaguar moving from Browns Lane and developing a new headquarters at Whitley where it will expand its world-renowned research centre and help create a futuristic science park bringing in 2,000 highly paid jobs.

And at the same time, the Browns Lane site will be taken over by a new company Delamar, which will invest pounds 200 million in a factory creating a pioneering construction system.

That will also bring 2,000 new jobs to the city.
