Rubery Hill Hospital, Birmingham

Acting on behalf of the NHS, Richards Urban Design and Lambert Smith Hampton worked together to secure outline planning permission for 117 new homes on the former Rubery Hospital site in Birmingham. Positive engagement with the Council and key stakeholders in advance of the submission allowed the scheme to be determined within 10 weeks, well in advance of the deadline.

We worked closely with the client to understand the impact on the continued healthcare activities on the site, phasing for three seperate land owners and provided advice on all aspects of the design and layout of the proposals including the outline drawings and Design and Access Statement.
