The Jewellery Quarter Neighbourhood Plan

The JQ Neighbourhood Plan is an opportunity for the community to help shape policy and have their say on the future of the area.

Neighbourhood planning was introduced by Government through the Localism Act in 2011. It is a document which contains a set of planning policies before being submitted to the Local Authority (Birmingham City Council) where it will hopefully be adopted into planning policy following a referendum of businesses and residents.

‘We want the Jewellery Quarter of the future to be a vibrant and characterful area with excellent connectivity and opportunities for both traditional and modern businesses

We want to create a high-quality urban realm, with green spaces and well-kept streets that are not dominated by cars.

We want attractive, distinctive retailers to join the already expanding leisure and cultural offering in this area.

We want to provide a range of places to live that residents want and need and contribute to community life.

We have developed a draft Neighbourhood Plan that aims to achieve the points above, but we need your help to see if we are on the right lines’.
