Birmingham Releases Pre-Submission Development Plan With Major Green Belt Development

Here going to cabinet in December.  The plan is notable both for the scale of Green Belt development proposed in the Sutton Coldfield area and that not all of the need being met in the City, surrounding areas would have to contribute to meeting household growth.

Extraordinarily the council report gives no summary of the main issues or changes in the scale or location of development or the DTC implications.  What a poor report, do residents have to plough through 100s of pages of appendices to understand the broad strategic issues?

One thought on “Birmingham Releases Pre-Submission Development Plan With Major Green Belt Development

  1. Is this really pre-submission draft of the Birmingham Development Plan? It only seems to deal with development within Brum’s boundaries, e.g.

    (a) Housing Trajectory, policy TP28, only deals with 51,100 homes when 80,000 are needed. See http://bit.ly/1fX6sBg

    (b) Sustainability Appraisal discloses “significant uncertainties” about the implications of placing 30,000 homes in neighbouring authorities due to to the “absense of detail at this stage”. See http://bit.ly/18OoRvF
