A41 Soho Road Draft Framework
Shortcut to this page: www.birmingham.gov.uk/A41framework
The A41 Soho Road corridor is an important transport route connecting north west Birmingham to the City Centre. It contains Soho Road District Local Centre, the core employment areas of Middlemore and Park Road/ Gib Heath and Hockley Circus. To capitalise on the success of Soho Road, the framework develops proposals for growth and expansion of the centre, as well as measures to enhance its public realm and support a healthy business environment.
Development guidance is provided on the key opportunities identified in the framework, which aims to promote development of high quality and good design. The framework also identifies opportunities to improve links to public transport and provide safer routes for pedestrians and cyclists.
The overall aim of the framework is the creation of sustainable and mixed communities and high quality places that provide the right range of uses to support the local community and wider area.
Public consultation on the draft framework was undertaken from 6th January - 3rd March 2014 and has now ended. All the comments received will be carefully considered and the framework will be amended where appropriate, before it is adopted in Summer 2014.
A copy of the draft framework is below along with a map showing the area covered by the proposals.
