Scheme Brief Description Status April 2016
Area wide minor measures pilot A pilot scheme of minor measures across a residential area of about 1km sq, to improve connectivity and permeability in order to encourage short trips by cycling or walking. Whilst such areas exist widely across continental Europe and currently being implemented across various London Boroughs, no such initiative has been trialled in Birmingham. Consideration of city wide potential sites in order to identify preferred location/recommendation.
