Birmingham City Council has granted planning permission for Moseley station, the third of the three proposed stations on the Camp Hill line – Moseley, Kings Heath and Hazelwell. With all three now having approval, plans to reopen the line to passenger services can move forward.

The new station at Moseley will include platforms with a canopy, stairs and lifts, a forecourt drop off/pick up area, covered cycle storage, lighting and CCTV.

David Isgrove, Moseley Forum.

Before submitting its plans for the new station, Transport for West Midlands consulted widely with the community, including the Moseley Forum and Moseley Regeneration Group. As a result, a proposed traffic light junction at the station entrance with St Mary’s Row was replaced with a roundabout.

David Isgrove, chairman of the Moseley Forum, welcomed the decision: “This is fantastic news, after years and years of hoping and waiting. The opening of the railway station will be of great benefit to the community.

“And we’d really like to thank all those involved in getting this decision through, from our own community groups, such as the Moseley Society and the regeneration group, to members of the Moseley Forum and to our councillors and Mayor Andy Street.”

Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands.

Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street said: “The community was overwhelmingly supportive of reopening the Camp Hill line to passenger services for the first time since the Second World War.

“But they did raise some concerns about the traffic light junction and we listened, looked again and found we were able to redesign the entrance.

“The new station at Moseley will provide residents with easier and faster connections to Birmingham city centre and the wider West Midlands and now with planning permission secured for all three stations we can move on to the next stage.”
