I went to the Camp Hill line consultation in Moseley today. One thing I discovered was instead of utilisation of existing services on the line to provide the two per hour service, there is going to be a dedicated shuttle service between Kings Norton and New Street using six-car trains at two per hour or more.

TfWM/WMCA are looking for people to be part of their User Testing Group for their website/app/campaigns. Not a consultation, but still might interest people: https://www.networkwestmidlands.com/...have-your-say/ (first drop down on here).

Also posted in the Transport projects forum.

West Midlands Development Consultations

Since I can’t get access to PB thread about Martineau Galleries, I’ll put it here. There are public consultations regarding this site

https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.b...d-16363709.amp

New shops and 1,300 homes planned for Birmingham city centre - have your say on the plans

Consultation launched for the regeneration of Dale End and Martineau Galleries

Consultation launched for the regeneration of Dale End and Martineau Galleries

Dale End is set to be completely regenerated with new shops, restaurants and cafes.

There are also plans to build up to 1,300 new homes in the area too.

The key city centre spot was once home to IKEA and The Hummingbird but has become run-down in recent years.

Not far from House of Fraser and Bullring, it could become a des-res for city centre dwellers.

Hammerson, which owns and manages Bullring and Grand Central, is inviting Birmingham residents to a public exhibition to present its plans for Martineau Galleries and the site next to the proposed HS2 Curzon Street Station.

What's in the plans?

Plans suggest that the regeneration of this 7.5 acre site, which currently features The Square Shopping Centre, the Dale End car park and 1-7 Dale End, could include:

· Up to 1,300 new homes

· Up to 1.4m sq ft of workspace for a range of businesses

· A new city centre hotel

· New shops, restaurants and cafes

· A signature gateway to Birmingham from the proposed Curzon Street terminal

· High-quality public realm, including a new public square and boulevard

These are the places Brummies would love to bring back

According to a report by consultancy Turley, all buildings currently on the site will be demolished and replaced over a phased development.

Martineau Galleries is the first major scheme to be brought forward as part of Hammerson’s City Quarters concept which was announced last year.

City Quarters looks to create vibrant mixed-use neighbourhoods surrounding Hammerson’s existing flagship destinations, in thriving locations around the UK and Ireland.

This will see Hammerson transform many of its city venues beyond pure retail into successful neighbourhoods providing homes, workspace and accessible public realm.

Guy Wells, Assistant Director of Development at Hammerson, said: “We are delighted to be progressing our first major City Quarters scheme and look forward to sharing the plans with local residents and hearing their feedback.

"Hammerson has a strong track record of creating great destinations, not just in Birmingham but across Europe, and we want to continue our investment with a new city-centre neighbourhood where people can live, work, relax and enjoy.

"We hope as many people as possible get in touch and have their say on the future of Martineau Galleries.”


How you can have your say

The public consultation will be run at the dedicated Martineau Galleries Consultation Hub, at The Square Shopping Centre, 100 Corporation Street, Birmingham, B4 6SX , and will be open to the public on:

Thursday 13 June: 2pm – 8pm
Friday 14 June: 11am – 4pm
Saturday 15 June: 11am – 4pm
Birmingham residents will be able to view the plans, meet and talk to the team, and give their feedback with the aim of shaping the new neighborhood within the city centre.

——

Also they have a website

http://www.martineaugalleries.co.uk

We will continue to work with local residents to keep you aware of our updated proposals and to hear your feedback.

Even if you are not able to come along to the public consultation, you can still take part online by viewing the plans and having your say here from Wednesday 12th June 2019.



New logo looks really cool too

Also does that mean we’ll be hearing about actual plans??

The consultation is to investigate options to improve transport links and pedestrian provision along the A4123 Birmingham New Road in the Black Country between A4150 (Wolverhampton Ring Road) in the north to A456 Hagley Road in the south. The questionnaire will record how the public travels along the A4123, what problems they experience and how they can be improved.

Overview

Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) and Birmingham City Council (BCC) are working together to make Harborne Road safer.

For the last 12 months a bus lane trial has been in place on Harborne Road. Monitoring of the impact of the bus lane continues but so far shows:

an improvement in bus journey times of up to six minutes during the morning rush hour
no impact on other vehicle journey times
no change in the number and severity of reported accidents
Although there has not been a significant change in the number and severity of reported accidents in the area, safety concerns about non reported accidents have been raised by local residents, and the number of accidents reported suggests that some changes to key junctions would improve road safety.

We will be making changes at three junctions:

Harborne Road, Chad Road and Augustus Road
Harborne Road and Richmond Hill Road
Harborne Road, Brook Road and Westfield Road
Proposed Changes: CLICK LINK

Have your say

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will take place across the West Midlands from 27 July to 7 August 2022 and it will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to put Birmingham and the West Midlands on the map. It will help deliver a healthier, happier, better connected and more prosperous region for us all, through new and upgraded sports facilities, affordable housing and by creating thousands of volunteer and job opportunities.

The effects of the Games will be felt for generations to come and transport has an important role to play in making that happen.

We’ve developed a plan in partnership with Birmingham 2022 and local authorities across the West Midlands which explains how we are accelerating existing plans to deliver a truly unforgettable Games.

A key focus of the draft plan, known as the ‘Games Strategic Transport Plan’ is to make sure residents and businesses in the West Midlands can continue to get from A to B while over 1 million visitors and more than 12,000 athletes, Games Family and international media make their way around the region to training and competition venues.

The draft plan covers things like how we will plan transport, principles for making decisions and the transport projects we are accelerating in time for the Games, which will help us move thousands of extra people around our transport network.

At this stage it doesn’t cover the exact details of how transport will work between venues or what road restrictions will be in place and when.

To understand what the plan covers and how we will make decisions in the lead up to Birmingham 2022, take a look at the following documents:
