What we are consulting on

During Stage 1 Consultation, we would like to hear your views on the following topics to help us refine our proposals:

Local information, issues and concerns

To help us develop the best proposals possible, including mitigation measures, we would like to hear about anything you think would be relevant concerning the local area, any specific issues you would like to see addressed, or any concerns you may have about potential impacts.

Layout options for the site

We are considering two options for the laying out of the various elements of the project, in particular the location of the rail terminal and the associated road and rail infrastructure. We would like to hear your opinion on both options. The layout options presented as part of this consultation are illustrative only and many elements of the proposals may change as the project is developed in more detail.

We would also welcome any other comments you have about our project at this stage.

Personal information that is supplied to FAL in response to this consultation will be treated confidentially and handled in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

The information may be disclosed or shared with FAL’s contractors and advisors who are working on the West Midlands Interchange project. This will allow the team to fully consider the responses and use them in the development of the project. Upon submission of FAL’s application for development consent under the Planning Act 2008, the Secretary of State may require FAL to supply copies of all consultation responses received. If a request is made, FAL is under legal obligation to supply copies of the responses. By submitting a consultation response to FAL, a respondent agrees that FAL may supply a copy of their response to the Secretary of State via the Planning Inspectorate, if required to do so.
