Only thing I know that's going on up that way is that the Shaftsmoor Lane building has been demolished and they're apparently doing site remediation works, with redevelopment plans in the pipeline.

Other than that, you've got an outline app for 43 houses on Cateswell Road, which backs up onto the Shaftsmoor Lane site, but it's probably too early to be seeing any works on that.

We'd then be left with the Development Forum being for development threads only, the Lunar Society Forum being for more interesting and academic threads, with both of these Forums on view to non-members, and a new Forum which only members will see which will be for all the junk. I think this would tidy the site up immensely.

Development Forum - development threads - viewable to members and non-members,

Lunar Society - interesting or academic threads, old photos etc - viewable to members and non-members,

New Forum - personal/silly/jovial threads etc - viewable to members only,

All the other existing Birmingham Forums would stay as they are.

Quoting my own post I know but does anyone have a problem with the above? It would certainly make the site clearer for people in my opinion.


If people are okay with it, I shall contact Jan and see what can be done.

@RalphGuy

I would rename the forum currently called 'Lunar Society' into whatever you were going to call the new members-only forum. Then create a new forum called 'Lunar Society'.

Move threads across upon request. That way, you aren't moving any threads that might have 'private' info into the public domain. Posters who are no longer around might have posted in 'confidence' - as far as it could have been, so this would respect that confidence.

Or perhaps make it so that Google can't index the forum currently called Lunar Society. Not sure this version of vBulletin can do this.

No forum intended for new members only Brummigrant. The Development Forum and The Lunar Society are to be viewable to members and non-members alike because the former will contain developments and the latter will contain academic threads or photo threads. The new forum I was going to create was for the jovial threads or personal stuff but this would only be viewable to the members.


I could ask Jan to create the new forum first so that I could transfer the relative threads across before he then makes the Lunar Society viewable to non-members so all the personal stuff will remain confidential to forum members only.

Sorry for the confusion. I meant new, members-only forum:

If you make the current Lunar Society forum this proposed forum (so just rename it to whatever you fancy), you could make a new forum called Lunar Society and move over.

I only say this as if I had been posting in what was behind a login wall, then I wouldn't be best-pleased to find out it was in the public domain a few years later. Especially if it could identify me and I was in the industry.

I agree with the premise of the forum structure, just quite keen that any public forum is started from scratch, rather than converted.

Ladywood social club has been boarded up for a while now and there are signs for MIA Property Group. Anyone know of any plans here?

A major development site in the Digbeth area of Birmingham has been snapped up from listed bus company National Express.

HUB has acquired the six-acre site with the view to bring forward a large-scale mixed-use regeneration scheme.

The land, which is currently home to a National Express bus garage, borders the Grand Union Canal at the Bordesley Canal Junction and lies within the Digbeth regeneration area.

The site will continue to house the bus garage until National Express identifies a new site.

Over the medium-term, HUB will bring forward plans for a large-sale mixed use scheme, comprising creative workspace, residential, leisure and retail uses. The scheme will be HUB’s first outside London and the South East.


Some substantial projects underway in LDN: https://www.hubgroup.co.uk/

Hoola London, Queen's Quarter and Chesterfield House are all very nice developments from HUB, think there also have a few smaller one, should be interesting

Off the top of my head, there was talk of demolishing it and building 50 flats.

At least a 30fl+ considering what it will be competing with in the Digbeth area tbh.

I was looking at this site on Google a few days ago, they could make such good use of the Canal, and with the supposedly sold Dunelm store and the storage site opposite, this could become quite a nice area.

I believe that's the SK Digbeth development. The sign has been up there for ages!
