Birmingham Road site
Early in the summer of 2018 we confirmed the news that the city centre Friarsgate development would not be going ahead. Since then, we’ve set up a cross-party working group and a project team to help consider long-term plans for the Birmingham road site.
The site includes the former police station, bus station, multi-storey car park and the land of the former garage and car showroom.
Our ambition is to marry the desires of key stakeholders and the local community to create a deliverable and sustainable development on the site, which could feature a wide range of uses, from housing and leisure, through to food and drink.
In the future, we’ll be asking for local views on what you’d like to see developed at the Birmingham Road site and will be holding a consultation event soon.
