A major Birmingham residential scheme has been put on hold after it was found that an objection to the scheme hadn’t been mentioned in a Planning Committee report.

Now, the company must submit fresh plans for the development after Birmingham City Council confirmed that an objection from the Victorian Society was omitted from the report.

Court Collaboration says it “remains committed” to building the Build-to-Rent-led mixed-use scheme, which will comprise 667 apartments across two buildings, with residential gardens and courtyard spaces, as well as a gym, cinema and sky lounge.

Anthony McCourt, CEO of the specialist residential developer, said: “We’ve worked incredibly hard to make One Eastside a truly remarkable development for our fantastic city, so we were disappointed to see our approved application taken to Judicial Review.

“Whilst this is frustrating, we remain confident that the development will go ahead and our second robust application will allow for just that. We will continue to work with key stakeholders with a view to securing an implementable planning permission.

“Birmingham’s progress cannot be held back by those with their own agenda and One Eastside is a part of its future. We won’t allow others to drag our city backwards. Court resides and lives in this city, and its success is at the very heart of what we do.”
