The application to turn The College Arms pub on Stratford Road, Hall Green into a single apartment building comprising of up to 12 flats, including pedestrian access and footpath improvements at Bowls Club was sent to Birmingham City Council. The planning application was sent between 19-25 February to Birmingham City Council.

It is the latest in a long line of pubs in the city that have been used for other purposes since the decline of traditional pubs in recent years.

The College Arms is described by property experts as a two-roomed pub with a large car park accessible from Shaftmoor Lane. It has a patio beer garden, a commercial kitchen space and a first floor function room.

There is a large L-shaped lounge served by a long bar counter. There is a raised area with a position for live entertainment. The lounge had a cover of 70 and included an overhead TV projector for the showing of sport and other events.
