Work on £350m Birmingham scheme set to start next year

Proposals by Glancy Nicholls and Glenn Howells Architects for Birmingham’s 2022 Commonwealth Games athletes’ village have been given the green light.

City planners gave their backing to the £350m scheme which will be used by competitors and then later converted into a mixed-use development featuring more than 1,100 homes.

The scheme, which is located on the site of the former Birmingham City University in Perry Barr, will accommodate around 6,500 athletes and officials during the games.
