HPH Selly Oak Property Ltd, which is registered in St Helier, Jersey, has revealed plans for a major student accommodation development on the vacant Sainsbury's supermarket site in Bristol Road, Selly Oak.

The development will consist of 1,191 units, 31 parking spaces and a ground floor commercial and community space.

Approval would result in 45 full-time equivalent jobs and roughly 250 full-time equivalent jobs on site during demolition and construction.

Submitted on behalf of the applicant, a statement to the council stated:

"The design of the proposal considers its surrounding context including height, materiality and uses to ensure that the development is sympathetic to the local character and history as well as ensuring a high quality, visually attractive development is achieved as a result of good architecture and place making."
