West Midlands Interchange Proposals

Proposals for a new strategic rail freight interchange near juntcion 12 of the M6 at Four Ashes were announced in June 2016. The planned development has received strong opposition from many local residents. Brewood and Coven Parish Council has resolved to wait until Stage 2 of the process before formally commenting. The Parish Council has however resolved to join with other local parish councils to share information.

The link to the proposal is here.

Consultation on stage 1 closed on 24 July. Stage 2 consultations will begin in February 2017.
