Thefts From Vehicles

Solihull Police have seen an increase in reports of theft from motor vehicles. Items such as dash cams, mobile devices (phones and laptops) cash,clothing and even sweets are being stolen from insecure vehicles.
We have also seen an increase in vehicle windows being smashed to steal items left on view. Often repairing the damage to the vehicle is more expensive than replacing what’s been stolen and is really inconvenient to vehicle owners when they have to arrange the repair. Officers have been out speaking to residents and checking CCTV so if you have any information contact WMP online live chat
Or call 101
You can also give information 100% anonymously to CRIMESTOPPERS

The vast majority of these offences are happening overnight so we are asking local residents to check that their vehicle is locked and all valuables are removed to help prevent you being targeted by opportunistic thieves

School Expansion

In June of this year, the Cheswick Green Residents Association alerted you all to the many flaws contained within the above planning application which would see the volume of pupils double. Having studied SMBC’s own Transport Assessment, concerns grew and legal guidance was sought. This led to the Cheswick Green Parish Council and Residents Association commissioning an independent survey to provide a transparent picture. Read More


IMPORTANT The plans for the school expansion have been published. See link below!!Please put in your objections by the 29th of June!
To object you either create an account on the website and can then submit comments or write to the local planning authority I.e SMBC stating planning application number, reasons, etc. You will need to really point out traffic/parking/traffic pollution in your objection as I think this is where they will take notice!!
