Former Museum of Science and Industry Development Brief - Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG)
The Former Museum of Science and Industry, situated on Newhall Street/Charlotte Street in the Jewellery Quarter, closed in 1997. This Development Brief was prepared to provide prospective developers with advice on an appropriate way to develop the site. It was adopted as Supplementary Planning Guidance in January 2002.
Planning permission for a mixed use development, including leisure and commercial uses, and 234 apartments was granted in March 2006.
The scheme includes the retention and sensitive refurbishment of a number of listed buildings on the site, some of which formed part of the former Elkington Plating Works. The work is now substantially complete.
A copy of the document is below along with a map showing the area covered by the proposals.
