Public Consultation September 2017
A survey was undertaken in January 2017 on the future of Kingshurst. The Council received 410 responses from the community, businesses and other stakeholders. This information helped shaped the proposals we now want people to consider.
The survey told us about who uses the current facilities at the Parade and when. It is no surprise that the most popular facilities are the food stores, post office and medical facilities; also, that Kingshurst is a local centre which serves local needs.
The most popular option was to demolish the Parade and replace the buildings with modern shops, community buildings and new homes.
The Council has developed a scheme that proposes new shops, medical and community facilities to the north of the park.
A public consultation will now ask residents, businesses and other stakeholders their views on these exciting plans. This is a chance for local people to help shape the future of Kingshurst as the Council continues to develop plans for the regeneration of Kingshurst.
As part of the consultation there is also a short survey. Please take a few minutes to fill it in and help shape the future of Kingshurst. There are spaces where you can leave comments. The survey will be open until 25 September.
You can find out more about the proposals by attending one of the drop-in sessions at Kingshurst Library on either of the following dates:
- Thursday 7 September 2017 from 2.00pm until 6.00pm
- Friday 15 September 2017 from 2.00pm until 5.00pm
Here are the banners that illustrate some of the proposals.
