Jewellery Quarter - Second Stage Consultation

The second stage consultation took place during July and August 2008. A letter and short questionnaire together with a freepost envelope for the responses went out to all business and resident addresses within the zone. In order to provide people with the most relevant information, for the deliveries the zone was divided up into smaller areas and the relevant part of the plan showing the proposed on-street parking arrangements for that area was included.

Full size plans were available for viewing during the consultation at The JQ Regeneration Partnership office, 57 Frederick Street Mon – Fri 9.30am – 4pm (plus open evenings) and The Information Centre at The Big Peg, 120 Vyse Street.

The plan was also available for viewing on the council’s website.

In addition a number of drop in sessions were organised to allow residents and business to talk to a council officer about the proposals at the Regeneration Partnership Offices at 57 Frederick Street. These took place on the following dates:

Wednesday 2 July 11am – 2pm

Thursday 3  July 6pm – 8pm

Monday 7 July 11am – 2pm

Wednesday 9 July 4pm – 6pm
