Timetable issued for Arena work

Construction work on Birmingham's long-awaited Arena Central development - a scheme which will include the iconic 50-storey V Building tower - could begin early in 2008.

Miller Group, one of the firms involved in the huge £500 million project, confirmed the timetable.

An application for detailed planning consent is shortly to be submitted to Birmingham City Council.

If given the green light, Arena Central Developments, which has already negotiated a 250-year groundlease on the 2.3 million sq ft site, hopes to see construction work start around next spring.
