Redevelopment of Westminster Works

The intial stages of proposals to redevelop the Westminster Works on Alcester Street are being undertaken by Campbell Architects on behalf of Dhillon Group. It is proposed that these now derelict buildings are converted into residential and serviced apartments, as well as additional facilities for the Paragon Hotel.

Digbeth Residents Association, along with other local stakeholders, were invited to comment on these plans BEFORE the planning permission application was submitted.

DRA would like to express how pleased we are that Campbell Architects along with the Paragon sought our opinions before actually requesting planning permission. We hope that this gold standard of community involvement and partnership becomes a benchmark for other organisations wishing to develop parts of Digbeth and indeed Birmingham.

For those of you who are interested in the proposals, the project brochure is available at the Paragon Hotel’s reception desk.
