1 BIRMINGHAM CONNECTED Anne Shaw Tuesday 20 January

2 Birmingham Connected Setting the context challenges in Birmingham The need for action The EU the SUMP process Strategy development the Birmingham Mobility Action Plan green paper Consultation and consensus The strategy Birmingham Connected Next steps

3 Birmingham s Population Growing population: 150,000 more people by 2031; 46% of population under 30. More cars: 80,000 more cars in the city and 200,000 more daily car trips on our roads by 2031; Congestion could increase by 85% by 2035.

4 Challenges in Birmingham One third of households don t have access to a car. Most Birmingham residents are not active enough for optimal health. Around 400 accidents in the city each year resulting in death or serious injury. Carbon emissions need to fall 60% by 2026 transport is key contributor.

5 Birmingham s Economics 20.9bn economic output in 2011: 22% of West Midlands total; Output per capita is below national average and mid ranking amongst core cities; relative position has declined over the past decade; 120,000 Birmingham residents receive workless benefit: 17.2% of working age population; 10.7% of 18 to 24 year olds claim allowances, compared to 7.5% nationally.

6 Birmingham s Economics

7 Birmingham s Local Centres Local centres: 1 regional centre (city centre) 1 sub-regional centre (Sutton Coldfield) 17 district centres 19 large neighbourhood centres (Longbridge added since map) 32 small neighbourhood centres

8 Birmingham s Local Centres Plans for job creation focussed on six Economic Zones ; Target: travel to work car use under 50%

9 City centre accessibility by public transport Existing Transport

10 Existing heavy and light rail

11 Existing cycle routes (2013)

12 Existing strategic road network

13 The need for action Cannot continue with a do nothing scenario. Need a strategy to enable travel behaviour change which sits in the context of local, regional and national influences:

14 Core objectives Efficient Birmingham facilitate the city s growth agenda in the most efficient and sustainable way possible, strengthening its economy and boosting jobs. Equitable Birmingham facilitate a more equitable transport system; linking communities together and improving access to jobs and services. Sustainable Birmingham reduce the impacts of air and noise pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption. Healthy Birmingham contribute to a general raising of health standards across the city through the promotion of walking and cycling and the reduction of air pollution. Attractive Birmingham contribute to enhancing the attractiveness and quality of the urban environment in local centres, key transport corridors and the city centre.

15 The SUMP process

16 The SUMP process

17 The BMAP green paper Birmingham Mobility Action Plan (BMAP) green paper, published in November Vision: BMAP will reinvent the Birmingham s transport system to meet current and future mobility challenges; facilitating strong and sustainable economic growth. The plan will change the way that people and business think about travel into and around the city. By influencing travel behaviour and embracing technological change we will reduce carbon emissions, increase safety and improve people s lives. Three key themes: 1. Improving strategic connectivity city-wide and across the region; 2. Improving connectivity and safety for local communities; 3. Improving connectivity to and within the city centre.

18 Consultation and consensus BMAP green paper began: A conversation with Birmingham people about how transport can support daily life; A conversation with stakeholders about what sort of transport system will best meet our future needs and how we can work together to deliver it; A conversation with Government about giving us the freedoms and flexibilities to deliver the quality of transport system Birmingham needs. Strongly agree Agree Neither agree nor disagree Disagree Strongly disagree Don't know 1% 9% Not answered 37% To what extent do you agree or disagree with this vision? 37.85% 0% 10% 20% 37.38% 30% 40% Public Responses 50% 60% 11.92% 70% 80% 53% 90% 100% Stakeholder Responses

19 The Birmingham Connected vision To set a new direction for transport. To usher in a new era in creating choice for how we move people and goods, delivering projects and infrastructure, and the ways in which we fund them. Birmingham must have a go anywhere transport system accessible to all.

20 We want to Complete a 1.2bn integrated public transport network; Investigate options to allow us to generate funding locally; Develop a strategy for the long-term future and role of the A38 through the city centre; Reopen and upgrade rail routes; Invest up to 400 million to upgrade Snow Hill Station; Deliver our local connectivity strategy for HS2; Promote a Low Emissions Zone in the city centre; and Establish Green Travel Districts.

21 Enabling travel choices We will enable different travel choices; We will provide the opportunity for everyone to have access to the transport options and information they require; Wherever they live or travel from, people need travel choices; and Many people feel that they have no alternative to driving their car, resulting in over one million car trips each day by Birmingham residents a quarter of which are less than a mile.

22 Committed investment New Street Gateway LGF Pinch Point Funding LSTF Cycle City Ambition Grant Metro (Tram) extensions SPRINT routes Major Developments Longbridge connectivity package

23 What do we need? An approach to generate more capital and revenue money; An open discussion with businesses and other stakeholders; To take advantage of new funding opportunities, including European money; and Additional local powers and decision making abilities.
