128 responses were received (see the section "results"). Many of the responses included written comments.

We did

The results of the consultation and the written comments were anonymised and shared with the IEB for their consideration.

We asked

Following the November 2020 public consultation for the wider Dudley Road Scheme, Birmingham City Council have taken on board comments from members of the public and tried to include these with the revised design.

To facilitate the improvements to Spring Hill, Western Road and Barford Estate it is necessary to implement a comprehensive landscaping proposal through the corridor. The landscape proposal ties together the early phases of the Dudley Road Revised Main Scheme delivery and provide continuity and a sense of place through the corridor. The original Revised Main Scheme public consultation did not detail these plans therefore additional public engagement was required.

You said

Analysis of the responses provided indicates both strong support and disapproval of the revised proposals. The key themes of providing enhanced compensatory planting has been identified and retention of trees where reasonably practicable have been fed back into scheme designs.
 

We did

Some valuable comments have been received by the local stakeholders and residents. These comments have been incorporated in revisions to the scheme; making further minor improvements to help to alleviate the problems raised.
