In July this site reported that Birmingham’s Grade II* listed Roundhouse in Sheepcote Street was given an award of £2.2million from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Canal & River Trust and National Trust formed a partnership and lodged plans with Birmingham City Council to transform the building.

The plans put forward by the Canal & River Trust and the National Trust included several schemes including an urban discovery and enterprise hub, exhibition hall, an indoor or outdoor sports or recreation use, a museum or some kind of education and training facility, cycle hire, the erection of link building and works to the courtyard.
The Business Desk now informs us that the city’s planning committee has given permission for a change of use for this Grade II listed canalside building.
