The deadline for comments on the latest plans submitted by developer Seven Capital for Albion Court on Frederick Street has passed. 

Thanks to all our patrons, drinkers, friends, community members, and more for submitting your comments about these plans. We’ve been enthused – in a relaxingly cool, muted way – by the support we’ve been given not just in the JQ, but across Birmingham. It’s been welcomed, but not surprising, as it’s the people that make our little slice of Frederick Street what it is.

We’re pleased to share a quote from Music Venue Trust, who supported our opposition to the proposed development plans.

Commenting on the proposals, Music Venue Trust said:

“Music Venue Trust is supportive of planning and developing which recognises the value of existing cultural spaces, and particularly where a proposed development is brought forward which contains positive plans to manage any negative impacts that might be experienced by those venues.”

“The application as it currently stands fails to present plans which address that need. We strongly support the objection being lodged by 1000 Trades, which contains a thorough overview of all the potential challenges and problems this application for this development may cause.”

“We strongly suggest that the developer fully addresses those objections, withdraws the existing application and presents an application that is suitable for development in this location.”

While you’re here, save the date for our summer party on Saturday 16th June. Full details here.
