Places For The Future

I stumbled across this page whilst searching for news on the IHBC site. Amidst getting rather angry with the National Trust and their relations with the IHBC, I found this lot:

The Places for the Future Supplementary Planning Document has been drafted to provide detailed guidance for future development and investment in Birmingham, with particular emphasis on safeguarding our resources for future generations.

The SPD's specific objectives are to
•set out how national and strategic policy will be interpreted in detail in Birmingham’s development
•identify the elements of sustainable development which all future developments must consider
•provide detailed guidance on these elements
•ensure the City meets its agreed carbon reduction targets
•ensure the City adapts to future climate change
•ensure the City’s overall natural environment, biodiversity, ecology and historical heritage are nurtured and maintained

It is written to support the Sustainable Development policies of the draft Core Strategy and the key outcomes of the Birmingham Sustainable Community Strategy 2026.

Tell us what you think...

This draft Supplementary Planning Document has been produced as the basis for public consultation. You have until 22nd March 2012 to let us know what you think about the policies. You can read about them and comment online or download a pdf version of the draft SPD and detailed guidelines below.

A public consultation event will take place in the Council House Banqueting Suite on 12th March 2012, 18:00 – 20:45. To confirm your attendance, please email sustainabilityteam@birmingham.gov.uk.

I've had a very quick look at that maps and one of the first things that jumps out at me is possible new railway stations at the NIA, Rotton Park and Soho Road. I didn't even know that this was a serious consideration, but sounds promising...

Bare in mind that those maps detail policies written for the Birmingham UDP which has to be around 10 years old now....?

True yes,

I was amazed to see so many rail schemes in my area. Such as a new station in Mere Green (by waitrose) and a park and ride scheme by butlers lane rail.
