The proposal is for the School to be in purpose-built accommodation on the University’s Selly Oak campus (B29 6QW), at the corner of Weoley Park and Bristol roads. The building will be set within the existing landscape, replacing a number of derelict and under-used buildings and adjacent to the Orchard Resource Learning Centre.
The site is close to bus routes and the Selly Oak train station.
In the Summer, the University carried out consultation on early site and building plans, ahead of submitting for planning permission. You can read a report on the findings from this pre-application consultation (PDF - 188KB), including recommendations made to the University.
The feedback received on the pre-application site and building plans was used to inform further development and refinement of the proposals ahead of the planning submission. We are now pleased to confirm that the planning application for the School has been made to Birmingham City Council and is available to view and provide feedback on via their Planning website, application number 2013/08357/PA.
You can read the University’s preliminary response to the consultation findings and recommendations (PDF - 45KB), including changes made to the plans as a result.
