Proposed traffic calming in Bournville & Cotteridge

Birmingham City Council are looking to extend the Places for People scheme across more of Bournville & Cotteridge Ward. This will make further changes to keep through traffic on the more main roads.

The proposed changes are aimed to complement the temporary measures introduced to Bournville in 2020. This was where large planters and bollards were placed on Oak Tree Lane and Franklin Road to prevent motorised vehicles from using these side streets to cut through and avoid main roads.

Whilst these proposed changes are not in Stirchley, there are several changes that may have an impact on residents, notably the one way system on Bournville side of Mary Vale Road and a shared-use path along Bournville Lane.

For more information or to view the documents relating to the proposed changes, visit the Bournville and Cotteridge Places for People page of Birmingham Be Heard. The council will also be holding drop in sessions and an online briefing, if you would like to know more / ask questions. Information on these events are also on that link.

You have until the 2nd July to make comments via the Council’s website.
