A rescue and regeneration plan for Birmingham's historic Jewellery Quarter has been launched by English Heritage chairman Neil Cossons and leader of Birmingham City Council Albert Bore. The two parties have drawn up conservation plans for the area, which contains original Victorian and early twentieth-century workshops. To start the process, a single conservation area is to be established from a number of separate areas at present and the Victorian coffin factory has been listed by the government at Grade II*.
