Sainsburys have put in an app to re configure the car park at the current store, would think this means things are still a while off for the retail development,

New home for soldiers and their families in Birmingham



A new project to support the UK’s military patients and their families has been announced.

Fisher House at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham will be a ‘home from home’ where wounded troops can spend time away from the ward with their families, friends and colleagues. The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity, in partnership with American charity Fisher House Foundation and UK charity Help for Heroes have joined together for the project.

The purpose-built two-storey property will be a short walk from the hospital and has been designed by a Birmingham-based firm of architects to complement the surrounding buildings.

Catering for people of all abilities, the home will be a largely open plan property with wide connecting corridors and wheelchair accessible lifts. There will be 18 en-suite bedrooms for families of patients to stay in as well as communal living facilities including a family room and play area, lounge, kitchen, dining areas and laundry room. Outside will be a private garden with space for children to play in and guest parking.

Mike Hammond, chief executive of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity, said: “The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham opened in June 2010, following the closure of Selly Oak, and is the receiving hospital for all the UK’s military patients who are wounded or injured anywhere in the world.

“The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity has played an important role in providing additional equipment, care and welfare to the military patients in the hospital, but until now has not focused on the families who travel many miles, and often from abroad, to be by their loved ones’ bedsides. We are therefore thrilled to launch the Fisher House for military patients and their families.”

“This is a great day not only for Fisher House and The Queen Elizabeth Hospital but for the relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom,” said Ken Fisher, Chairman and CEO of Fisher House Foundation. “For more than two decades, we have built Fisher Houses to serve American military families in their time of great need. We’re proud to now help bring this same model of compassion and caring to Britain, whose military families make the same sacrifices, bear the same burdens and need the same support as American military families. We look forward to the day this house opens to begin its much-needed work.”

Bryn Parry, Co-founder of Help for Heroes, said: “We are delighted to be supporting our wounded and their families, working in partnership with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity and Fisher House Foundation. This project is key to helping our heroes on their road to recovery. Since the charity started, we have seen a clear demand for Fisher House and know how important it is for families to be near loved ones during times of distress when support is so greatly needed.”

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity is very grateful for the generous grants from Fisher House Foundation and Help for Heroes. Fisher House Foundation has awarded a grant of US$2m to the project, the first time it has supported a project outside of US soil. Help for Heroes has awarded a £1.5m grant, and has already confirmed a further £50,000 per year for the ongoing running costs. In total, the Fisher House will cost in the region of £4.2m.

Construction of the Fisher House is due to start in April with completion anticipated in early 2013.

Looks like Sainsbury's are completely refitting the current store over the next couple of months. While it's very much in need of a refit, it does seem an odd decision if the place is set to be flattened in the fairly near future.

It is odd especially as it was looking like the new one was being brought forward.

Just as I we we're speaking over on the Retail Thread, thought this was pretty much doomed.

About the rumour Sainsburys have pulled out of this, I'm not so sure yet, there will be a food retail store and the applicant is Harvest Partnership, which is a joint venture between Land Securities and Sainsburys. I doubt they would back a development to house another supermarket on site! Maybe the rumour has come from Sainsburys realising they could be potentially waiting a while so have decided to refurbish the existing store in the mean time...

Selly Oak regeneration leaflets have dropped through the doors of Selly Oak residents today.

The main changes to the plans are the introduction of the former Lapal canal link (as well as a turning point for canal boats) and increased access to Selly Oak park. Student accommodation and more food and drink outlets, with less retail shops are also part of the revised plans. They are also to bring forward highways improvements at the current triangle site.

They give a loose time frame of starting to clean the site (used for years for heavy industry and as landfill of course) to start in early 2013, with construction on site starting the year after. This suggests why Sainsburys may be reconfiguring its car park etc - it will be two years before they make a move.

Further plans can be seen at events on Friday/Saturday 16th/17th at the Christian life centre on Bristol road. More details here - http://sellyoak-regeneration.co.uk/

Looks like it will be a two storey decked car park above ground level with a green living wall surrounding the outside.

I'd like to see this and the current Battery Retail Park linked together with atleast a walkway

News from Business Desk with a nice CGI of the revised scheme:
http://www.thebusinessdesk.com/westm...-_Daily_E-mail

Selly Oak regeneration scheme could create 3,000 jobs

PLANS for a new regeneration scheme in the Selly Oak area of Birmingham have been submitted by Land Securities and Sainsbury’s.

The duo - jointly known as the Harvest Partnership - are proposing to transform Selly Oak’s former Battery Park site into a new mixed-use retail and leisure destination.

Located between Bristol Road and the new Aston Webb Boulevard, the regeneration scheme will see the transformation of a derelict, 13-hectare brownfield site into a mixed-use development, which Harvest Partnership suggests could create up to 3,000 new jobs.

The original plans for large-scale redevelopment of the site have been modified as a result of initial public consultation undertaken in Autumn last year, but the key supported components of the scheme remain intact.

The proposals include a new Sainsbury’s store and petrol station along with a range of more than 20 shops, places to eat and drink, offices, student housing and hotels.

The development - if green-lighted by Birmingham City Council - will create a ‘canalside piazza’ and extensive environmental improvements.

The scheme would also introduce a canal link, which partly retraces the historical Lapal Canal route. This would provide a water feature crossing the site from the existing Worcester & Birmingham Canal and create the possibility of a future restoration of the canal alongside Selly Oak Park.

Neil Carron, Land Securities project director, said: ”We have worked hard to ensure that the proposals are realistic and deliverable and we’re pleased that the public’s feedback on the scheme has generally been positive.

“However, thanks to the initial consultation, we have also been able to identify aspects of the plans that needed to be reviewed. This has resulted in a revised proposal which will transform Selly Oak into a vibrant destination, whilst also creating 3,000 much-needed jobs.”

Battery Site

There was an article doing the rounds in the professional glossies recently saying that M&S had abandoned the Sainsbury's site in favour of Longbridge. The scheme needs a second anchor tenant to draw people along the shopping route to the canalside; if it gets permission then it has just has to be a good venue for an M&S/Primark, etc.

Wondered if a cinema would fit? There's nothing too close to Selly Oak and you'd think it would be a good use given that the car park will be empty at night.

Hopefully the canal can now extend into the park, where it really would enhance that environment.
