Birmingham Science Park, Aston Local Development Order

The Big City Plan identifies Birmingham Science Park, Aston as a key area for the city’s knowledge economy. The primary aim of the Local Development Order (LDO) is to increase flexibility for ICT, digital media and creative industries within the park by allowing certain changes of use without planning permission. Please note there are some specific changes excluded from the LDO.

To find out if your property is in the Aston LDO area, check the Aston LDO boundary map.
