Go-ahead for 2,200-unit Birmingham scheme despite noise and Covid-19 concerns

Plans have been approved for a scheme involving 1,250 homes and 950 student flats in central Birmingham, despite concerns raised about the use of "sealed units" to reduce noise disturbance from nearby nightclubs and uncertainty over the impact of Covid-19 upon future student numbers in the city.
