We had a great workshop on a very cold Saturday in January where we animated the shop front of the vacant Phones4U shop with the current plans for the High Street for feedback with some workshop activities specifically around how people use the High Street and how they might like to use it. For example, we were asking people where they might like seating, bike parking and where they thought visitor signage may be best located. We were also asking people what they thought of the median central strip idea to facilitate for informal crossing along the High Street in between the formal crossings.
We had a great response from people who stopped by and had a chat with us with some great ideas being out forward, some of them are below. Here are some of the images from the day and some of the feedback that people left us, thanks to everyone who stopped by. We also had visits throughout the day from ‘Elvis’, we were told he is quite infamous in Kings Heath!
