Consultation CV-25 9 May 2014
Chinn Brook Recreation Ground (CV-27) Green Route A 2.5m wide tar spray and chip cycleway and footpath is proposed along the route to the north of the River Cole.

Due to there being sufficient space either side of these routes to allow cyclists to pass it is not proposed to widen them. Consultation CV-27 21 May 2014
Hamstead Park and Cherry Orchard Recreation Ground (TW-2, TW-4) Green Route A new walking and cycling path within Hamstead Park will run alongside the River Tame and link the entrance on the Old Walsall Road to a newly created entrance on Hampstead Hill adjacent to the play area.

The path will be surfaced in a bonded gravel tarmac. The entrances to the site will be improved with fence repair work. A new Toucan crossing is also being proposed on Hamstead Hill to link the two sections safely. Consultation TW-2, TW-4 13 June 2014
