Bristol Street and St Luke's Draft Development Framework
The City Council has produced the Bristol Street and St Luke's Draft Development Framework to guide the future development of sites on Bristol Street and within the St Luke's estate.
The draft development framework builds upon the aspirations of the Big City Plan and sets out the vision and development principles for the future regeneration of the area.
The Bristol Street and St Luke's sites
The Bristol Street site fronts Belgrave Middleway and Bristol Street and is the former site of the Matthew Boulton College and Wellsbourne Tower. The St Luke's site fronts Belgrave Middleway and Sherlock Street and includes the sites of former residential towers, the Highgate Centre and public open space.
What the development framework does
The framework will be used to make sure that future detailed development proposals meet the needs of the area including:
- New homes of a mixed size, type and tenure including affordable housing;
- A remodelling and improvement of Public Open Space as part of a new development to include new facilities and the re-provision of a football pitch;
- Opportunities for mixed-use development and landmark buildings on Bristol Street/Belgrave Middleway;
- Keeping the best trees and planting more, particularly along Sherlock Street;
- Potential to reuse St Luke's Church and elements of the Highgate Centre.
