The city council would appreciate your views on plans to make major changes at Ashted Circus, through funds secured from the 'Local Pinch Point' and 'Local Growth Fund'. The improvements aim to better manage motor traffic flow to support economic growth and connectivity between the city centre and the wider area.

The Birmingham Cycle Revolution team would like to know about local civic centres (eg shopping parades) outside the twenty minute isochrone that lack cycle parking. The 20 minute isochrone is the area centred on the city centre that can be reached with up to twenty minutes of cycling, and broadly corresponds to the area within the A4040. Money has been found to provide cycle parking at these centres, but the BCR team would appreciate your local knowledge so they know where the stands are needed.
Birmingham City Council is considering highway improvements to address road safety concerns on Bristol Road South, Bell Hill and Shenley Lane.
