Birmingham City Council held a planning committee meeting this morning where the future of Birmingham's Gay Village was discussed. The session this morning was attended by prominent members of Birmingham’s Gay Community together with concerned members of the public. Together they were there to object to the most recent planning application arguing plans could threaten the future of LGBTQ+ spaces and businesses in the city’s Gay Village - the planning application is for the demolition of existing buildings including Amusement 13 (formally DV8) providing 116 new residential apartments in a 9-12 storey building.


A decision has been deferred on the planning application as it stands futher to a site visit and consideration for noise levels and the cultural impact on the local LGBT+ community.
