The route will be changed for next summer's Velo cycle race in the West Midlands, following complaints over this year's event and Solihull councillors say concerns raised by residents must be addressed before next June.
A council report on the 2019 Velo Birmingham and Midlands noted some disruption was caused and Councillor Joe Tildesley, Solihull’s cabinet member for leisure, tourism and sport, said a planning group would once again meet monthly to discuss preparations.
This year, about 17,000 people took part and the council noted the event had raised more than £1m for charity. Councillor Diana Holl-Allen said it could be seen as a "tremendous success", but there had been some difficulties.
The event faced criticism two years ago, with some residents saying they felt trapped in their homes. This year, a vet said he may have been able to save the life of a horse or its newborn foal had he not been delayed by stewards.
Speaking last month, Velo organisers said they were "committed to growing and improving it year-on-year".
Solihull Council said it planned to increase the number of school and community events around next year's race, to encourage more people to take up cycling and physical activity.
