Planning permission granted for Stirchley Baths community hub

Great news today – the plans for Stirchley Baths have been approved by Birmingham City Council’s planning committee!

There’s still some way to go (a successful Heritage Lottery Fund bid) before work can start on transforming the building into a community hub, but planning permission is a huge step in the journey.

Here are the remaining key milestones in the project:

Until April 2013: development of the Stage 2 Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) bid

June 2013: Our HLF bid for £1.3 million will be submitted

September 2013: HLF decision

And if successful…

October 2013: A three-year programme of heritage and history-related activities gets under way

October/November 2013: Building work starts on site

October/November 2014: Stirchley Baths community hub opens

Now we have planning permission we really need to show the Heritage Lottery Fund that the community is behind the project.

We have a great event on Saturday 6th April where you can physically back the bid by taking part in a community art challenge at Stirchley library…

And please get in touch to share your memories of the Baths, and if you have ideas or want to get involved in shaping the heritage and history-related activity plan, which aims to celebrate the building’s past while looking to its future.
