Tyseley Environmental Enterprise District Local Development Order

Shortcut to this page: www.birmingham.gov.uk/teedldo

Local Development Orders (LDO’s) allow us to grant automatic planning permission for certain types of development and therefore remove the need to submit a planning application. In doing this, LDO’s simplify the planning process and help provide conditions to stimulate new economic development.

In order to exploit the growth in resource recovery and low carbon technologies Tyseley has been designated as the city’s Environmental Enterprise District (TEED) in the Economic Zones Prospectus; Investing in Birmingham (September 2012). The proposed Local Development Order will encourage development through reducing costs and providing certainty for potential developers and businesses though a simplified planning process.

The proposed LDO seeks to grant planning permission for associated development within use classes B1 (b) Research and Development of products or process, B1 (c) light industry, B2 general industrial uses, and Environmental Technologies and Energy Recovery Uses.

The TEED area also benefits from an ERDF package to improve and create new enterprise space and for business development. www.birmingham.gov.uk/tpap
