An application for a student housing scheme in Aston has been submitted.

The proposals outline a 174-bed development which will be spread out between two buildings – one four storey and the other six. When completed the accommodation will consist of 122 “cluster” rooms of 3 and 7-bed apartments, and 52 studio apartments.

The plans proposed by the team for the 25,000 sq ft site also include communal spaces, including a gym, cinema and laundry space.

The site, at 315 Summer Lane in Aston, Birmingham, currently consists of industrial units, which will be demolished to make way for the accommodation.

The units are currently used by a small engineering business and as meeting spaces, and are described as being in a “poor state of repair.”

D5 Architects have been appointed by contractors CG Reynolds to work on the plans for the site. Also involved in the project are Town Planning & Design Services, Briar Associates and civil engineers Cundall.

The application for the Gun Quarter said the redevelopment intends to meet increasing demand for student accommodation in the city.

Summer Lane is one of the biggest sh*tholes in the City Centre, the road is wide enough to have a green central reservation, would be nice as a boulevard. Agreed Sefton hopefully it'll spur other developments, but remember, Lower Loveday St was refused due to nearby factories, so maybe won't see anything else around d here for the foreseeable future.

It's a bleak part of town - used to be a pub pretty much on every corner, I think there is only one left now.

Goes to committee next week does this, with refual reccommended lol

Reasons for Refusal
1 The development of purpose built student accommodation in this location would harm the long term employment and economic regeneration activities of the surrounding established industrial employment uses by virtue of the site's location within a core employment areas as identified in the Birmingham Development Plan. As such it would be contrary to Policy GA1.3, Policy 19, TP20 and Policy TP28 of the Birmingham Development Plan and Paras 60-62 of the NPPF.

2 The proposed development of this site for residential purposes would lead to harm to the health and quality of life for future occupiers, by reason of noise and general disturbance from nearby industrial uses and air pollution from road traffic. As such the proposal would be contrary to policies TP2, TP33 and TP37 of the Birmingham Development Plan and the National Planning Policy Framework

3 The proposed development would introduce a noise sensitive use on a site within the core employment area. The proposed development would be likely to give rise to complaints about noise and disturbance leading to restrictions being placed on the operation of adjacent industrial premises and the resultant loss of employment activities. the proposal would therefore be contrary to policies TP17 and TP19 of the Birmingham Development Plan and the National Planning Policy Framework

4 The proposal involves the development of purpose built student accommodation and insufficient information has been submitted with the application to show a demonstrated need for the development. As such the scheme is contrary to policy TP33 of the Birmingham Development Plan.

5 The proposed 4 and 6 storey linked buildings, on account of their excessive height, scale, and mass in relation to the surrounding industrial area, their arrangement on site, with the highest block centrally located, and their close proximity one to another, would result in an incongruous development that is out of keeping with the industrial character of the area. As such the proposed design fails to respond positively to the site conditions and local area context and would not contribute to a strong sense of place as required by Policy PG3

6 The applicants has not demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Local Planning Authority that a Sustainable Drainage Strategy can be put in place to limit surface water discharge to the equivalent site-specific greenfield runoff rate for all return periods up to the 1 in 100 year plus climate change event. In the absence of such strategy, or information that demonstrating that it cannot be reasonably practicable, the proposal is contrary to TP6 of the Birmingham Development Plan, Sustainable Management of Urban Rivers and Floodplains SPD and the National Planning Policy Framework

Reasons for refusal 1-3 seem interrelated and the core issue. Reasons 4-6 seem more ancillary because the developer probably hasnt done the extra technical work neccesary to convince the LPA of the merits in the context of the anticipated refusal.

If they go to appeal expect a few of these reasoms to fall away as the appllicant seeks to evolve their position but the majority of the core reasons is likely to stay

Is the area likely to remain industrial once the clean air zone comes and rising land value in the city centre


Realistically it’s not good employment space and many of the companies around here would probably be better off with a purpose built factory unit to modern standards

It’s likely to remain industrial for a long time if you compare it to Digbeth for example.

The main issue is that they have failed to demonstrated compatibility with the employment uses.
