Planning Success in Birmingham for Unite the Union
NJL Consulting has gained planning consent for Unite the Union for its new National Education and Conference Centre in Birmingham.
The detailed planning application encompassed a conference centre, a 170-bed hotel and regional headquarters for Unite the Union.
The scheme will contribute to the redevelopment of Birmingham Science Park Aston, located within the Eastside regeneration zone of Birmingham city centre.
Commenting on the success of the application, Juan Murray, Senior Environmental Planner, at NJL Consulting said:
"We worked closely with Birmingham City Council, who added valuable input into the design iteration from the outset, and believe the new Unite headquarters will stand as a valuable contribution to the regeneration of this area of the city."
Mike Ryder, Director at project managers Purple Apple Management, added, “NJL Consulting worked very closely with the development project team and Birmingham City Council Planners and helped to achieve a very satisfactory Planning Permission for Unite The Union on this high profile National Education and Conference Centre with associated Hotel. We were delighted with the way NJL worked to achieve this Planning Permission.”
