Working for a greener and more mobile Business District
The Colmore Business District has been designated a Green Travel District (GTD) as part of a partnership between Colmore BID and the city council’s ‘Birmingham Connected’ Mobility Action Plan. It is hoped the scheme will lead to a reduction in the use of the private car, which will drive economic, social and health benefits, and tackle air pollution across the city centre.
The GTD, which is described as ‘not anti-car, but pro-pedestrian’, will see investment focused on public transport, walking and cycling.
A pollution monitor has been placed in one of the busiest areas of the District to monitor air quality. This information will help shape the future of the GTD.
