Snow Bound? Then use this as your last chance to comment on the big city plan.

Don’t let the snow distract you from an important truth: it’s the last week to get your comments in to the consultation on the Council’s Big City Plan Work in Progress document. You can email, phone, or send an old fashioned letter (all the contact details are at the link above), but this Friday (6th Feb) is the closing date.

If you’re bemused some of the ideas or language, or would like to discuss your ideas openly in public and online, then the independent Big City Talk website may be the place to go. It’s got a “plain English” version of the document and also host comments by other Brummies who care just as much as you about how the City Centre might change over the next 20 years.

This is just one stage in progress towards a defined plan for the 800 Hectares of the city centre – but it is important to have you say now, because the next stage of the consultation may have already included your least favourite bit and some of the work is due to start soon.

Lifted almost whole from Jon Bounds – feel free to lift this from me.

    It is quite a fraught word. I remember using it in a bloggers meet to sharp intakes of breathe. I think you are still unusual in getting that geekness is a good thing – not something to be steered away from. Much of the world is still like the BBC presenters who pretend they couldn’t possibly be expected to understand whenever something scientific gets mentioned.
