Dear Birmingham City University,

Re: Phase 2 campus

Please provide the consultation document/Board meeting minutes that underpinned the decision to have no University owned car park (with the exception of 10 disabled spaces) in your new City Centre Campus (Phase2)?

When visitors visit your University will you expect them pay for parking or will you reimburse the cost?

What analysis undertaken has determined that having no u
University car park will not have an adverse affect on the reputation of the University?

What information underpinned the University in having cycles stands to accommodate 120 bicycles?

How many visitors, staff and students travel to your Millennium Point site for the past 5 years by cycle?

Yours faithfully,

Bashir Zen

Stephen Homer, Birmingham City University

Dear Bashir Zen

 

Thank you for your request for information under the terms of the Freedom
of Information Act. Please see below for the University's response

 

Please provide the consultation document/Board meeting minutes that
underpinned the decision to have no University owned car park (with the
exception of 10 disabled spaces) in your new City Centre Campus (Phase2)?

 

The Board of Governors is responsible for decision making on all key
aspects of the City Centre campus design, including car parking.  Board
minutes are confidential. Please see: [http://www.fia.bcu.ac.uk/fiad.htm]
under the heading Board of Governors.

 

When visitors visit your University will you expect them pay for parking
or will you reimburse the cost?

 

Visitors choosing to use their cars to visit the University will be
required to find car parking. Where visitors pay for their car parking,
unless pre agreed with the University, the University will not reimburse.
Disabled car parking is available either on site or in the local car park
free of charge.

 

What analysis undertaken has determined that having no University car park
will not have an adverse effect on the reputation of the University?

 

The Birmingham Conservatoire, School of Art and Faculty of Technology,
Engineering and the Environment at Millennium Point are all located in the
City Centre and, on a par with many other city-centre universities, none
of these facilities have University car parking. 

 

What information underpinned the University in having cycles stands to
accommodate 120 bicycles?

 

That decision arrived from two sources, firstly negotiation with the City
Planners in promoting sustainable travel and secondly to achieve a
commitment in providing a sustainable energy efficient building that was
BREEAM excellent rated.

 

How many visitors, staff and students travel to your Millennium Point site
for the past 5 years by cycle?

 

We do not have this information in that form.    Increased provision of
cycle parking is part of the University and the City Council's drive to
promote sustainable travel.

 

 

Kind regards

 

Stephen
