Selly Oak Ex-Servicemen's Club and 113 Dawlish Road in Selly Hill Road has been set to get the go ahead for a part three, part five storey building which will provide 178 student bedrooms, a communal lounge, a gym and a games room.

Prior to the meeting, a document by the councillor officer outlined the "highly sustainable location", the suitability of the development to local surroundings, the absence of adverse impact to neighbours and finally the support it would provide to the University of Birmingham as reasons for his recommendation.

A final decision is expected to be made on Thursday 26 March by the City Council's planning committee.
