Birmingham residents consulted on Tyseley £60m revamp plan

Birmingham residents are being offered the chance to share their views on a proposed £60m regeneration scheme.

From 6 to 8 October, people living and working in Tyseley can view the outlined proposals as part of the public consultation.

It will be held at St Edmund's Church on Reddings Lane and representatives will be on hand to answer questions.

Up to 1,000 jobs could be created or retained under the plans, which include a retail park and new public spaces.

Jonathan Cox of Oswin Developments, leading the development team, said, "This is a very important opportunity for this area with exciting potential but we really do need to hear back from local people.

"All the feedback we get will be included in the documentation that accompanies our planning application, which will be submitted to the Council within the next few weeks. We would urge as many people to come along to hear what it's all about and tell us what they think."

Other plans in the scheme include a new link road to Signal Point Industrial Park and a new residential area.
