Prosperity Build Updates - Q2 2020

A message from Prosperity - We are pleased to report that construction work is live on all our current sites, in accordance with the government’s health and safety guidelines for COVID-19.

From a planning perspective, as of the 23rd April 2020, Birmingham City Council are now hosting virtual planning committees to keep the planning decision making process operating throughout the health scare crisis.

There may be delays as the council clears some back log from previously cancelled planning committees.  However we can confirm the process is now active and working with two committee hearings per month.
