Green light for student accommodation scheme


A £24m managed student accommodation block in Stirchley has been given the green light by Birmingham City Council. Developer Alumno has been


granted planning permission to construct the accommodation on the former BT Telephone Exchange brownfield site on Dogpool Lane. The residence will accommodate


the growing number of students attending the local universities and dental hospital, taking pressure off private housing in the area. The development has been


designed by Glenn Howells Architects. Dav Bansal, partner at Glenn


Howells Architects, said: “The elegantly crafted red brick- terracotta design of Dogpool Lane responds to several key local landmarks, including the red brick Selly Park Church and Dogpool Lane Hotel. “Once completed, it will provide


students with an attractive place to live, study and socialise in a healthy and sustainable environment. The project also reinstates a piece of underutilised green space as a matured setting for the building for


both students and the local community to enjoy. “The scheme has been a


culmination of the many lessons learnt and experiences working with our long-standing client Alumno, and we believe this will not only provide a much needed and sustainable home to embed students in the wider community, but also a catalyst for regenerating this local neighbourhood.” The development will house 167 residents, and include a reception


and communal areas. The site will also feature public art being created via an initiative led by Birmingham poet laureate Casey Bailey in partnership with the Ikon Gallery, Writing West Midlands and pupils of the neighbouring Selly Park Girls School. Promoting a cleaner local


environment, the development will be car free, with students prohibited from bringing vehicles to Birmingham through their tenancy agreements.

Affordable homes for sports ground


Affordable homes built at former Victoria Carpets Sports Ground in Kidderminster, developed by Living Space Housing, have been handed over to social housing provider Stonewater. Forty-eight homes are part of


the first tranche to be completed at the complex 5.4-acre site, which has a project development value in excess of £8m. The site located on Spennells


Valley Road has lain derelict for a number of years, as previously planned uses for the site were seen as uneconomic because of the work needed to mitigate flood risk. The developable area at the site


has been raised by at least one metre and a pluvial flow water course has been created below ground to mitigate damage, if a flood was to occur. Steve Davies, managing director


of Living Space Housing, said: “Transforming this derelict former sports ground has been our most technically challenging project to date. We have worked successfully with all stakeholders to fully mitigate a number of complexities faced from the geographical position of this site and the whole team is proud of what has been delivered.”
