Moseley is a neighbourhood full of proactive people driving change in the community and area, the Moseley Regeneration Group (MRG) are a prime example of this.
Bringing representatives from other groups together, we share information about local issues and agree upon collective responses to help shape the future of Moseley.
We act on strategic issues that include:
– Ensuring a wide variety of Moseley groups are represented and showcased throughout the area
– Land use and development concerns
– Working with developers, investors, businesses and others to understand their priorities and the impact of proposals on the neighbourhood
– The Moseley Big Plan
The Moseley Big Plan
MRG led on the production of the Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and oversees the progress of the Moseley Big Plan.
The SPD brought together local residents’ ideas for improving the area and was adopted by Birmingham City Council (Moseley supplementary planning document – May 2014) from this the Moseley Big Plan was created based on the input of the communities’ ambitions and priorities for the area from initiatives like Big 7 Consultation.
The MRG monitor how this plan and its aims are progressing and developing. Focusing on protecting Moseley’s character, but still letting it develop and remain a flourishing neighbourhood for years to come.
Our Current Priorities
The pandemic has been a real challenge for everyone, especially for small businesses, key workers, transport networks and care providers. MRG has been working with Low Traffic Neighbourhood schemes, the Moseley Together Covid response group, the train station planning and design, and the government’s 2020 White Paper ‘Planning for the Future’.
We have highlighted 4 key areas we think will impact Moseley the most, and outline below our future projects, helping to plan for Moseley’s post-Covid future.
1. Planning & Developments
2. Traffic & Transport
3. Moseley Together
4. Supporting the Local Economy and High Street
Our future projects are quite challenging and we would warmly welcome volunteers to help us. We particularly welcome expertise in community consultation, planning and admin support.
