IM Properties have published a brochure summarising the main details of their planning application for Blythe Valley Park. This may help residents understand more clearly what is proposed. There are no provisions for a doctors surgery or school, a view supported by Cheswick Green parish council who favour expanding facilities at Cheswick Green along with improved connectivity in order to cope with increased demand.

Solihull Council - Webcasts Meetings
Posted 2nd May 2016
Comment on this
Bearing in mind how dramatically our area is being affected by planning decisions it may be of interest that Solihull Councils meetings are now webcast and archived, enabling residents to see the decision making process.  There is a good example in the case of PL2016/00393 Berkswell which I found interesting but rather depressing in its conclusion.
