Airport Flight Path Protection Team - Help Needed
Posted 11th September 2014
Comment on this
The Flight Path Protection team at Birmingham Airport is seeking the help of local residents to protect the security of the flights paths.
PC Powell says: “People who live and work beneath the busy flight paths can be the extra eyes and ears to assist us in keeping flights in and out of the airport safe.

“By being vigilant and reporting anything suspicious they will be helping to minimize the opportunity for terrorist-related incidents. The team are keen to enlist to the Community Engagement Register anyone who is regularly out and about in their patrol area.

Summary of Mount Dairy Farm Decision
Posted 5th September 2014
Comment on this
There is a good summary of the councils decision to grant outline planning permission to Bloore Homes on the parish councils website. It has been a very emotive issue so good to see a more clinical piece.

Mount Dairy Farm at Cheswick Green
Council Say YES to Developers
Posted 3rd September 2014
Comment on this
Solihull councils planning committee tonight voted to follow the wishes of its officers and approve Bloore Homes application to build up to 220 houses on Mount Dairy Farm.
The question has to be asked why were Councillor David Bell, Stuart Davis, Howard Allen. Margaret Bassett, Stephen Holt, Jeff Potts, Jim Ryan, Glenis Slater and John Windmill forced to give up their evening in front of the telly to decide an outcome that had already been decided by their planning officers and the council’s legal team?
All credit to Councillor Jim Ryan who had the courage to stand up and voice is disgust for the position they were in. If like me you have been brought up to try and do the right thing you may have been disappointed to witness our elected councillors bend over and take a kicking from the developers and make a decision that they know to be the wrong because it might save the council and us the ratepayer some money if they loose an appeal.
Doing the right thing brings a lump to your throat and a tear to your eye in the movies but in the cold real world it's just not very convenient.
The developers have won. and the council have lost more than they realise but well done Jim Ryan for having the backbone to stand up to them.

What a farce that meeting was! It was all signed and sealed before hand. The councillors should be ashamed of themselves, they have put money before the people they are supposed to represent. I have very little confidence in the drainage representative who fumbled through his answers and made Gary Palmer look very uncomfortable at times. Lets hope come election they find themselves out of a job!

We, the ratepayers & tax payers pay the monstrous salaries of council officials. We the electorate elect councillors. We, the residents object to a housing plan. We the residents can all go hang. Them the developers laugh all the way to the bank. Jim Royle would sum it up: DEMOCRACY MY ARSE!.
