Animated proposal features in virtual consultation for Solihull station
Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council is taking public engagement online through an animation we produced in collaboration with Mott MacDonald and Intervention Architecture.
Hawkins\Brown is currently working with Network Rail, Transport for West Midlands and Chiltern Railways to develop a vision to transform Solihull station into an integrated transport hub.
First opening in 1852, the station currently serves around 2,500 passengers to key destinations such as Birmingham and London daily. This number is set to rise significantly in the coming years. The proposed development will incorporate several modes of transport, including two sprint routes, and it aspires to provide an attractive gateway to Solihull town centre.
The online engagement follows on from a first stage consultation where local residents were able to respond to developing plans in-person. While current restrictions mean that we are unable to hold another face-to-face consultation, we opted to update the public through a narrated animation instead, outlining how we have taken their feedback onboard.
We are hoping to share proposals with the public soon.
