Earth and Marine Environmental Consultants Limited (EAME) were commissioned by Salhia Investments (Birmingham) Limited and Salhia Investments (Residential) Limited (jointly, the Client, site owner & developer) to compile an Environmental Statement (ES) as defined by the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) (England and Wales) Regulations 2011 (as amended). This based on an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) that is required in association with the planned re-development of a moribund site in Digbeth with a mixed use city centre development comprising office, retail, and residential uses with associated support buildings and infrastructure. The subject site, to be known as The Beorma Quarter is located on the south eastern edge of Birmingham city centre.
Situated in Digbeth opposite the Bullring, the Beorma development is a flagship mixed use scheme comprising demolition of existing buildings, erection of two new block structures including a 30 storey tower building alongside refurbished listed buildings or building facades, and offering retail space (A1, A2, A3), business space (B1a), residential apartments (C3) and live-work units, together with ground source and other energy systems, surface level servicing and new landscape areas. A related development known as Beorma Phase 1 was approved in 2009 is now underway and will provide a hotel in addition to office, leisure and retail uses. The Phase 1 development is the subject of a separate planning application and EIA and is not addressed further in this ES which focuses on Phases 2 and 3.
