This weekend voting comes to an end on the rather low key campaign to hand £50 million from the Big Lottery Fund to one of four projects.
Amongst the finalist is the Black Country Urban Park which plans to turn the Black Country Green. What to do with Birmingham’s Historic Buildings? The programme includes support for a bid for World Heritage Status for the Black Country canals and their associated buildings. It’s the most local of the ideas pitching for the £50 million and will have the greatest impact on the West Midlands built heritage.

Another project which will have some local benefit is the Sustrans pitch – part of a national walking and cycling network which would see the money spent in Birmingham and 78 other local authorities.
