The University of Birmingham today (Friday 20 January) confirms the sale of Manor House to Crest Nicholson, an important step forward in the history of the estate and the surrounding Selly Oak area.

We have worked closely together with Crest Nicholson over recent months to develop plans approved by Birmingham City Council, which include conditions to reinstate the Manor and designs sensitive to the heritage of the buildings. They also include additional provision for housing on the site.

We look forward to seeing this site reinvigorated and a new lease of life for the Manor, reflecting its original impressive stature.
