‘Kings Heath Long Park Corridor’ is a mile of green areas along Howard Road, Howard Road East and Wheelers Lane. Apart from Howard Road Play Park, these green areas are unused, except as places that people pass through. We see huge potential in this as a transport route for walking and cycling, a floral and edible growing trail, a play space, an inspiring space and a community asset.
We have begun working with Birmingham City Council, Sustrans, Kings Heath Neighbourhood Forum and others to develop projects along the corridor, an orchard on the roundabout outside Swanshurst School, improvements to the Howard Road Play Park, and we are looking for more. If you live on or near this corridor and have an idea, or would like to get involved, please get in touch.
