Approved Planning Policies Banner

Please Note : This document has now been revoked and is no longer in use

This Local Action Plan was prepared to co-ordinate the investment and outline a range of other planning proposals to provide a new country park in Newhall Valley, and to enhance and improve local facilities in Walmley Centre, Sutton Coldfield.

The proposals included

  • a new country park
  • measures to support the local shopping centre
  • introducing traffic management measures
  • improving the built environment and
  • expanding the local library and community facilities.

The plan was adopted as Supplementary Planning Guidance in May 2002.

Many of the proposals in the plan have been implemented. Newhall Valley is now a Country Park, laid out and designed to improve local access to and enjoyment of the countryside with a series of public footpaths, cycleways and two children's play areas. The land is now managed to maintain and promote nature conservation and its historic character. Having achieved most of its aims, the document has now been revoked.

A copy of the plan is below along with a map showing the area covered by the proposals. You may however be interested in the shopping policies contained in the Shopping and Local Centres SPD, adopted in March 2012.
