Merritts Brook Greenway Feasibility Study

Merritts Brook Greenway Feasibility Study.

The Merritts Brook Greenway Feasibility Study

The Landscape Practice Group have been appointed by Birmingham City Council’s Transportation Strategy Section to carry out a Feasibility Study for a potential new walking & cycling route alongside Merritts Brook in the Bartley Green, Weoley and Bournville Wards of South Birmingham.

The objective of the feasibility is to extend, complement and upgrade existing routes which form part of a natural green corridor from the City via the River Rea corridor and Bournville through to Bartley Green and the countryside beyond. The route aims to provide a safe and accessible, all weather, traffic-free route connecting communities and linking local parks and open spaces together which would help to encourage their use and promote health and fitness through enhanced walking and cycling opportunities.

A technical study has been produced which is hoped to be used to seek wider public support, City Council approvals, funding opportunities and help enable a comprehensive public consultation in the future.
