Kings Heath local centre public consultation

Closed 10 Jun 2022

Opened 16 May 2022

Overview

This project, funded by the Active Travel Fund, is part of the West Midlands Cycling & Walking programme and supports the proposed Places for People scheme We aim to make walking and cycling everyday choices for local journeys and leisure activities, as part of a safe and integrated transport network for Birmingham.

In 2020, an area of on-street parking was suspended on Kings Heath High Street to enable social distancing and queuing.

We are now proposing to permanently remove the former areas of on-street parking that were suspended on the High Street in 2020 and widen the footway in these areas.

We are proposing the following changes:

  • Removing the existing free parking on the High Street
  • Permanently widening sections of the footway on each side of the High Street
  • Providing loading bays for local businesses on each side of the High Street (three bays in total) 
  • Providing three blue badge holder parking bays
  • Installing a number of planters along the footway

This is not a consultation about the second phase of the Places for People scheme. Further local engagement on this will follow soon.
