Not sure where to put this, but the replacement Aston University Nursery is almost finished, in the portacabin off Coleshill Street. Ready for them to move in, in January 2016.




Assume once they vacate the building at Venture Way, then demolition could start?

Anyone wanting to use the car park from this side, can't now.



Although did see a City Council green bin lorry inside earlier, so assume the Dartmouth Middleway entrance is not blocked off (yet).


General canalside view of the site (from the canal footbridge)

BournvilleBaggie assume that you didn't go over the canal footbridge near Heneage Street West? (towards Dartmouth Middleway).

Have they blocked off the car park from the Middleway also?

Trees and shrubs etc continue to be cut down.

Meanwhile Birmingham Post reports that the college had been approved.

City planners are expected to approve the development of the new National College for High Speed Rail on Birmingham Science Park Aston next to the Digbeth Branch Canal.

The college, along with a sister site in Doncaster, will provide specialist vocational training and contain workshops, classrooms, a café and office space alongside a car park and external teaching area containing railway tracks, masts and social space next to the canal.

Totalling 61,350 sq ft, the college has been designed by Sheffield-based architecture firm Bond Bryan.

The location was announced in 2014 and will feed into the development of the HS2 high-speed rail line between London and Birmingham, including its terminal in nearby Curzon Street, and other future rail projects.

The application will debated at next Thursday's meeting of Birmingham City Council's planning committee where it has been recommended for approval.

A report said: "Birmingham has been chosen by the Government as one of the two locations for a national vocational training college for HS2, a decision that is fully endorsed by the city.

"It is a previously developed site within an area identified for regeneration in the Curzon Masterplan, a plan that promotes economic growth that supports HS2.

"Its location within the science park and close to existing educational establishments would maintain a research and learning presence in this part of the city.

"The investment in this site and the opportunities to enhance the skills required for HS2 are to be welcomed."

BournvilleBaggie if you pop along tomorrow morning (to take photos), you will see fences near the canal bridge, many bushes etc have been cut down.

Ok. Take it you weren't interested in the cutting down of trees etc?


Think some fallen trees were blocking the towpath yesterday (for some walkers).
