Overview

Digbeth is a well-established area with a rich local history and ambitious plans for regeneration and growth. There is currently high demand for on-street parking in the area, with all day commuter parking presenting particular issues for local businesses and residents. As the area continues to grow and change, demands for on-street space are likely to increase.

The council have developed proposals for Digbeth to help manage and control on-street parking activity, encourage sustainable travel into the city and make the area a safer, healthier and greener place for residents, businesses, visitors and future investment.

On-street parking controls in Digbeth

This consultation is about proposed on-street parking in the Digbeth area of the city centre, shown on the map below in the red and blue areas.

In the yellow and green areas on the map, referred to as the ‘inner zone’ and the ‘outer zone’, on-street parking controls and charges are already in place. No changes to parking in those areas are proposed at this time and they do not form part of this consultation.

We are proposing to improve parking in Digbeth by introducing a mixture of:

  • Permit parking for local residents and workers; permits are valid for one year and are likely to cost* £225 for residents and £290 for workers.
    *Prices are subject to review and may change before this scheme comes into operation.
  • Paid for parking, often called pay & display.
  • Areas of no waiting (double yellow lines).

Permit and pay for parking controls are proposed to operate from Monday to Saturday 8am to 7:30pm.

This consultation is about on-street parking only; off-street car parks and private parking areas would not be affected. More detailed information about the proposals is online at www.birmingham.gov.uk/digbethparking.

What Happens Next

After the consultation closes, we will review all your responses and make appropriate changes to the proposed scheme. There will then be a period of legal consultation on the Traffic Regulation Order before the scheme can be implemented. You may respond to that legal consultation whether or not you have responded this time, but it is easier for us to incorporate your suggestions now than during that statutory consultation.
