This has been refused on the basis that there would be too much noise and disturbance for any new residents caused by 1000 Trades & Fredericks opp with its outdoor seating area, late night hours and the comings and goings.So, Seven Capital are advertising Albion Court on Frederick Street with a banner http://eplanning.idox.birmingham.gov...=2017/10021/PA
despite not having the application approved. 1000Trades next door have objected to the application with concerns over noise and a lack of engagement. Best that you read their blog post:
The impact of noise from entertainment uses within the immediate area would result in unacceptable living conditions for future occupiers. The installation of secondary or thermal glazing and ventilation in addition to keeping windows shut to address these issues would affect living conditions and alter the appearance of the building that may harm the character and appearance of the Jewellery Quarter Conservation Area

The law places the onus on the business if there is ever a statuory noise nuisance. This means that the Council would need to server notice on the business if there was a complaint, to be quieter (reducing activity or installing mitigation which is sometimes costly) and if it continued to be a nuisance, it would eventually seek to close the establishment. I assume the Council is trying to prevent this happening by refusing the applicaiton.^^
I find this type of refusal, really "Grinds my Gears"!
Firstly 1000 Trades in my experience is a pretty friendly, quiet establishment. Fredericks as occasional parties, but generally is a friendly. quiet establishment, both close in midweek at 11.00pm unless I'm mistaken.
Isn't it the choice of the purchasers to decide if they want to live next to 1000 Trades and Fredericks?, in other words if you don't fancy the low level noise and disturbance simply DON'T MOVE THERE!
On this basis the whole of St George's and the Kettleworks area will be a cultural desert, no bars or restaurants in case someone gets "disturbed", because any application from a licensed establishment to give the area some "life", will be thrown out by a clearly "all knowing" planning department.
..and yet this same planning department okay's the Bank and 212 Broad Street where we're talking REAL NOISE and DISTURBANCE :nuts::nuts:
Nigeman: November 29th, 2017
Noticed yesterday there's a development going on in Tenby Street North that seems to have gone under the radar.
On the empty plot next to Elizabeth Place and behind Roberts and Palmers there's a good deal of steelwork going up. I can't tell if its connected to Robert and Palmers or something new. Can't find any planning details.
Not massive when compared to the mega St Georges and Kettleworks projects at the end of the street, but another gap filler.
I noticed this too. Not huge but we don't want to see empty plots in the JQ There's another one just up the road too. But with this one, if it’s the spot you’re talking about, then it’s 14 apartments in a 4-storey building.
The first one has a considerable amount of steelwork up now, as well as brickwork to the left hand side of the plot near the textile factory.PerpetualBrum: There have been quite a few apps on this plot. In 2015 the architect died but the council deemed the design unsuitable for the area anyway, so it was withdrawn on the advice of the LPA. Now we have this new one. The RJ Smith frontage is deemed too unsound to convert into modern living accommodation. So that will most likely be replaced with this:
Back in 2012
Fortunately RJ Smith continues its manufacturing of cufflinks in premises right by JQ car park and has done since 2005, so it's not like they've been kicked to the curb.
The textile building fronting Carver Street and SGUV on the corner can’t have too much life left in it really can it? So that'll be developed next I'd imagine.
And while I'm on a roll, the other one up the road - 2017/08567/PA 20 Tenby Street North.
3/4 storey side extension by BPN Architects on that little plot of land which has been empty since the 70’s, for 7 new apartments. A nice little filler.
Apparently that’s a Grade 2 listed building and it’s vacant but this new proposal would see it revived into offices
2000 at a guess, it depends what you consider to be the JQ and what you define as being ‘planned’ for example I haven’t included the bomb site in that estimate as it’s been awaiting development for forever and new plans that were scheduled to materialise in December are nowhere to be seen.Approximately how many apartments in total are planned or under construction in JQ?
Location plan on the site has it sitting on the site of that textile factory I mentioned above, which surely will be the next to bite the dust around here. Next to it is 41/42 Tenby St North, which has scaffolding & brickwork going up for 14 new apartments - 4 of which are townhouses, as that advert you've posted also mentions. Could be that?

How long has Arnie been there for? It's a great idea, I hope it becomes a permanent fixture as it could potentially become quite a popular attraction
Otherwise I agree, the architecture around there is just beautiful. With more life breathed into it this could be an absolutely top notch part of town soon, and caroline street seems to be really thriving lately, very exciting!
Just drove past the site, it's gone!!!Popped up mysteriously last night. No-one has claimed ownership yet :lol:
