Development consent granted for the West Midlands Interchange

5th May 2020

The Secretary of State for Transport approved the Development Consent Order for West Midlands Interchange (WMI) on 4 May 2020. There is now a six week period in which the decision may be challenged in the High Court, a legal process known as a Judicial Review.

We have issued notices as it is required to do under section 134 of the Planning Act 2008. These notices can be found in our document library. They are to notify those with an interest in the development boundary that the approved Development Consent Order contains compulsory acquisition powers.
