End of formal engagement on OFCP 'Shaping our City Together'

Public engagement on the OFCP Shaping our City Together document closed on the 26 March 2021.

Over the 8 week period we set up a number of online events for people to give their opinions on the proposed vision and strategy for Central Birmingham.

This resulted in a high level of engagement with a number of ideas, concerns and opportunities raised, which will be reviewed and considered to inform the next stage of plan development.

We will produce a Consultation report which will provide overall feedback and analysis on all comments received during this engagement period which will be available in the summer on our website.

We want to thank everyone who has taken part in the engagement so far and we will continue this conversation throughout to ensure we are creating a shared vision and set of actions to positively change Central Birmingham.

Details of future engagement on the OFCP will be placed on this webpage, but if you have any further comments or queries please contact us by email.
