abondened the current proposals and will investigate alternative route
Results Updated 12 Apr 2016
There was 60% support to proposals while there was 40% objection to the proposed route. Also the route was not supported as its current location by Friends of Highbury Park and other conservation groups. Birmingham City Council will investigate other possible routes. Further consultation will be published on BeHeard website when alternative options investigated.
Birmingham City Council is proposing to improve the existing path network within Highbury Park. The existing path will be widened to accommodate both walkers and cyclists from the main drive northwards upto the existing pond and then westwards to Moor Green Lane. Also drainage improvement works and a new seating area around the pond are proposed as part of this project.
These proposals form part of the Birmingham Cycle Revolution (BCR) project which is developing a network of routes through green open spaces and along canal towpaths. The project is also developing routes on main roads, quieter back street roads, 20mph speed limit areas and other supporting measures including cycle parking.
The project is jointly funded by Birmingham City Council and The Goverment's Cycle City Ambition Grant. As well as building routes like this, the project is working with schools, workplaces and at leisure centres to get more people cycling. There are many ways you can get involved!
