Birmingham City Council, the Canal and River Trust and Sport England have commissioned Jon Sheaff and Associates to develop a new masterplan for Edgbaston Reservoir.
This 23 hectare waterbody lies 2 kms from Birmingham city centre and is at the centre of the Greater Icknield masterplan area that forms part of Birmingham’s ‘Big City’ Plan. The Greater Icknield masterplan (being developed by Maccreanor Lavington in partnership with Urban Splash) will involve the provision of over 3,000 new homes with associated commercial and community facilities.
The JSA masterplan study will involve the development of a mix of proposals to encourage greater use of and improved access to the Edgbaston Reservoir site, the development of sustainable proposals for the site’s portfolio of buildings and the protection of the site’s natural and cultural heritage.
The project will be developed in partnership with the client group and an extended group of local stakeholders and residents.
JSA will lead the project, supported by Erect Architecture. Business planning inputs will be developed by Counter Culture with design for ecology and bio-diversity being provided by the Ecology Consultancy.
