Development plans
#1
Not sure that this does an awful lot to improve the look of the Stadium; but 375 apartments will sure make a lot of money for the developers:

They could have cut out all the flannel and just said: "We are putting up these buildngs that look like big boxes."

Very true.... The congestion charge will have a big impact on the city.... but apparently if they don't do it, they will get a big fine from Brussels.

Why dont Birmingham bring in a proper underground metro system like many other European cities (like Barcelona)... who calculated it was just as quick to dig up the road, put a sub ground level metro in and reinstall the road on top. It doesn't have to be a 'deep' system like London. The last metro extension in Birmingham near house of Frazer was done at the rate of ten centremetres a day.... and many parts of Birmingham (particularly parts of the west) is poorly provided with no train services. Even the new extension will go little further than broad Street and disrupt traffic for ages.

The ground is outside the proposed congestion zone. Charges will only apply inside the inner ring road.

I realise that but "out of towners" may well have to find alternative routes to the ground

But there’s no reason an ‘out of towner’ would need to go INSIDE the inner ring road is there?

The congestion charge will have a very negative impact on the city centre though.... also anyone driving through it to get to Edgbaston may be hit by it. To be honest, I don't go shopping in the city centre anymore.... Car parking is so expensive and the council anti car. I spend my money on line and do better things with my time. Those who like catching busses and being accosted by Romanian issue sellers are welcome to it.... the council clearly and mistakingly thinks they will keep things going... No wonder shops are closing... Those with money keep away. Birmingham should have invested in a proper metro that is built under the surface of roads like in many European cities (dig the road, lay the metro and resurface)... rather than its current bodge job which makes roads even more congested... they laid track near house of Frazer at a shocking 5cm a day. The route from Hagley Road to the city is the next fiasco.

You have to laugh at the incompetence of the city council.... I feel sorry for those that actually pay the council tax in the city.
