Feb 05, 2013 11:42 GMT Following several months of deliberation about the future of the ‘Holders Lane & Pebble Mill Playing Fields’, Birmingham City Council officials have put residents minds at rest by stating that their intention is no longer to “sell off or lease the site”, but rather to “safeguard its future for the benefit of the community.”
Kingsbridge Uncovers Plot to Build 4 Storey College Building on Public Open Space at Holders LaneApr 05, 2012 21:18 BST
Earlier today Kingsbridge uncovered plans University College Birmingham submitted to Birmingham City Council for their proposed Development of the Holders Lane Site. Senior Officials at the Council have been aware of these plans for sometime- but until now they have not been made public? Now we can see why. The plans include a huge 4 storey college building which would dominate the open landscape of the site with its suite of class-rooms, staff-offices, and grandiose, glass fronted student bar. It looks like a replica of the Titanic has grounded slap-bang in the middle of the Holders Lane greenbelt!
