12 January 2023 – Message from Councillor Ian Courts, Leader of Solihull Council

Happy New Year – I do hope everyone was able to take some time off and relax over the holidays before ‘hitting the ground running’ in 2023.

The new year often brings a sense of optimism, looking forward to the changes and developments the next twelve months and years to follow will bring. That all may sound tricky at the moment when you listen to the news, but I am pleased that the Council has started this year by looking to the future and launching a 6-week consultation on a refreshed version of our borough-wide transport strategy and delivery plan. We’re already one of the best connected destinations in Europe, but I have been keen that we revisit this strategy, to capitalise on the opportunities presented by the potential for significant new investment in our transport network.
