Hope I'm wrong but I think we may be looking at a lot of empty and derelict buildings for a lot longer with this move.

How do you figure that? The article talks about developing the jewellery quarter not stopping things?

Neighbourhood plans cannot stop development and need to accord with the cities Development Plan. It or any other means other that committee cannot be used to prevent development and growth if the council's own development plan states an area is to grow.

15mins CPD for you all.

These plans have to be drawn up within the parameters of the National Planning Policy Framework as well as the city's Core Strategy, and neither of those really allow for protectionism. If anything, a lot of residents and businesses may find themselves feeling let down by how little scope there is for them to become NIMBYs.

All the Neighbourhood Plans do is give residents a greater input in how they think their area should be shaped over the next few years and play an active role in its management. They won't have the final word on proposals, merely a stronger voice.

This could well be revolutionary but I don't think it'll turn the planning system on it's head... at least not yet...

Incredible! Biosonic and Erebus posting again! Good to have you back.

I hope the JQ has the right balance for development and proposals in the future

I lurk MSP but busy so not much time to post. FWIW I think the noises being made from the JQ are interesting and will push it in the right direction. Digbeth could do the same.

What it will do is give the local area (ward?) 25% of CIL payments raised in the area for them to spend as they wish, as long as in accordance with the plan. Could be interesting for the much needed community infrastructure. This legislation is likely to be brought into force in the next few months and has been termed the "Boles Bung"

I love these building so much... Can't believe this street is not part of the Big City Plan.

A great building as are the others on the same side .Hopefully, the developments opposite will lead to a more secure future for the buildings on this side of the Street.Typhoon,I believe these buildings come under the St Chads/St Georges área of The Big City Plan.

That building has been ruined with the more modern top floor though. I'd rather there was a glass atrium put in place, all windows replaced and the shrubs removed to make it a real nice wedge block.

Agreed! Would love to see this building and its neighbours given a facelift. Something like the crocodile works in newtown!!

This area is scandalously run down - but sadly there is little incentive to invest with some of the other uses around there. It's quite an intimidating place even in the day with a hardcore of alcoholics from the plethora of hostels around there using the back of St.Chads as a open air toilet and bar

ADVANCED WORKS PLANNED FOR THIS WEEKEND
04/04/2013

Trees outside The Big Peg in the Jewellery Quarter will be cut down this weekend as part of advanced works needed to prepare for the new Golden Square development.
The works will be carried out on Sunday to minimise disruption to businesses surrounding the site.
The trees will be replaced with a similar number of mixed species as part of the plans for the Golden Square, which is due on site shortly.
Golden Square is the flagship project in the city council’s Big City Plan initiatives programme, providing a focal point for the Quarter and space for events, exhibitions and for simply relaxing.
More information on the progress of the development will be posted here soon.

Good news. It seems so long ago since the design was chosen.

We've been promised this for 4 years to be precise. This was first proposed in 2008 for construction in 2009
