Birmingham-Paradise Circus secrets revealed

IC Birmingham 7th February - Paradise Circus secrets revealed "Consultants appointed by Birmingham City Council to investigate the feasibility of a £1 billion redevelopment of Paradise Circus and the Central Library site warned the project was financially flawed and unlikely to succeed. A blunt report by Jones Lang LaSalle and Gardiner and Theobald was submitted in February 2003, but kept under wraps by the council. The paper has been obtained by The Birmingham Post under the Freedom of Information Act, although council lawyers censored what they considered sensitive parts of the document. Officials said the details were commercially sensitive and it would not be in the public interest to release them."
