Rugby Wheelchair tournament

Annual wheelchair rugby tournament is back!

ESRG are delighted to announce that 28th March sees the return of the very successful Annual Wheelchair rugby tournament, taking place at Sedgefield Community College. The event has been organised by the Darlington Mowden Park Community Scheme sponsored by ESRG Group.

It will see Mowden Park 1st Team players take on teams from the NE Bulls WRC, Help for Heroes Phoenix House Recovery Centre and Irwin Mitchell Solicitors. Support from ESRG has enabled the event to run again this year.

Wheelchair rugby is a wheelchair based sport for disability affecting all four limbs. It is a growing sport which is developing every year as more people become associated with it. As one of the only full-contact disability sports, it is little wonder wheelchair rugby, aka ‘murderball’ was one of the biggest hits of the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

ESRG Developments announce big plans for 2017

ESRG development plans are in for Birmingham City Centre regeneration.

Planning has been submitted for 400 new apartments on two derelict industrial sites in Digbeth, Birmingham.

ESRG’s plans include partial demolition, refurbishment and erection of new buildings at 234-236 Bradford Street, to create 162 one-bedroom and 131 two-bedroom flats and six ground floor commercial units. There will also be parking for 61 cars and 292 bikes in a complex ranging from four to eight storeys.

In a second project, the team are planning to carry out further demolition before constructing 148 apartments, three ground floor commercial units and 11 parking spaces at nearby 250 and 251 Bradford Street and its corner with Alcester Street. This element will range from four to nine storeys and comprise 91 one-bedroom and 57 two-bedroom apartments with parking for 150 bikes.

Neil Grinnall, Director commented, “The vast investment in recent years in Birmingham city centre has changed the face of a once industrial city. Digbeth will be the subject of ongoing redevelopment and the scale and location of proposed buildings and associated commercial and amenity spaces reflect this city aspiration.

Both schemes add to ESRG’s current project portfolio which includes major residential and split use developments in Poole, Birmingham and the USA.
