Dogpool Lane, Selly Park

Where is the site and what is currently there?

The site is located at the junction of Dogpool Lane and Pershore Road in Selly Oak.

The prominently-located brownfield site is currently a combination of the vacant and derelict former BT telephone exchange and the former Barclays Bank building which is split between fast food premises, the Post Office (which will be repositioned and retained) and a few rented residential flats. Images of the existing site can be seen below.

This investment would regenerate a neglected space, making it a positive contributor to the surrounding community.
