Development plans for Tyseley Wharf

Plans to redevelop Birmingham's Tyseley Wharf have been given the green light, ensuring this former hive of industry will have a second life.

Up until as late as 1957 Tyseley Wharf on the Grand Union Canal was bustling with boaters unloading cargos such as zinc and steel. The wharf is now home to a number of buildings and warehouses, which need replacing and updating.

We're working closely with Birmingham City Council to create a high quality business park at Tyseley Wharf by providing up to 250,000sqft (23,500 sq. metres) of new industrial warehousing. The plans will attract new investment and create job opportunities for local people. We're also going to create new wildlife habitats along the canal by incorporating attractive green areas within the new development.

Create jobs

Cheryl Blount-Powell, development manager at the Canal & River Trust, said: “This development at Tyseley Wharf will help to visually improve the area and create jobs for local people. The development is also an opportunity for us to green up this stretch of canal and hopefully encourage more animals and insects to live along this urban patch of waterway.”

The development at Tyseley Wharf will be marketed on behalf of the Canal & River Trust by Harris Lamb Property Consultants Birmingham. Expressions of interest should be directed to Neil Slade on 0121 213 6028
