Birmingham City Council has announced a new leaseholder for the former Constituency Office on Stirchley High Street.
Following months of discussions and negotiations, the lease has now been agreed between Grace Church and Birmingham City Council. Work will now focus around agreeing the formal lease, developing the plans for the site and securing funds for the works.
Having outgrown their current building on Dell Road, Grace Church aim to renovate the building, having also outlined their intentions to preserve the heritage and appearance because of its historical significance. Subject to planning permission and local consultation, they intend to undertake an extension to the rear of the building to allow greater flexibility and community use.
Further communications will be circulated by Birmingham City Council to advise when the works will commence.
We have been informed this evening that the former District Office has now been advertised for rent as D1 Community Centre use at a rent of at least £25,000pa for a term of 3 or 5 years full details are here.
Sub-post office for Stirchley
Is anyone interested in opening a sub-post office in Stirchley? As the High Street has now lost it’s last bank this could be a good opportunity.
