A planning application [new application submitted 23/12/13] has been submitted to Birmingham City Council for the upgrade and expansion of Reaside Clinic in Rubery.
Owned by Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, the site currently provides assessment, treatment and care for up to 92 men who require medium secure accommodation.
Originally built in the 1980s, facilities need to be improved to meet contemporary government guidelines for the provision of medium secure accommodation and to improve rehabilitative services.
The proposed upgrade would allow the clinic to house up to 138 men in low to medium secure facilities, an additional 36 beds.
Most accommodation facilities would move into the new buildings while community and support services, currently run off site, would be rehoused in the current building.
