Changes to the S4 Bus Service
Posted 10th February 2015
Comment on this
From 2nd March 2015 the S2 and S4 routes will combine to become a through-service between Dorridge and Cheswick Green. Both services will operate via Solihull Town Centre and Solihull Rail Station.
The S2 will become a Cheswick Green to Dorridge service.

The S4 will become a Dorridge to Cheswick Green service.
The S4 towards Cheswick Green will not serve Station Rd and Poplar Rd stops, due to roadworks. Buses will stop at Stop ST Warwick Rd, then continue along Warwick Rd and Lode Lane to Solihull Rail Station and Cheswick Green.

Your Parish Council Needs You

Cheswick Green has its own parish council for which households pay an additional sum on their council tax called a precept. Currently for a house in Band D this is £47.55 and the budget for 2015/16 is just under £45,000.
Once again the parish council has agreed to maintain the current level of precept without increase.

Cheswick Green Parish Council has asked Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council to consider an increase in the number of councillors from 5 to 7 as there could be occasions when there were not enough councillors in attendance to be quorate and make decisions. Also a planned increase in housing and work on a Neighbourhood Plan will lead to increased workload. A public consultation was held and 5 responses were received from local residents out of an electorate of 1,940. See Final Proposals

Should the final decision be taken to increase the number of councillors, the additional seats will hopefully be filled at the elections on 7th May 2015. As there were no new applications for councillors in 2011 existing councillors were elected unopposed and the last formal election was in 2009 when the council was formed.
If you have an interest in the future of Cheswick Green and the surrounding area maybe you should consider running for parish council.

PARTY IN THE PARK 2015
Hi all, after a lengthy discussion tonight, I am pleased to advise that it has been unanimously decided that Party in the Park 2015 just has to happen!!.
Although the decision has been made to proceed, as previously mentioned we really do need more volunteers to help set up, run the party and help take it all down and clear up at the end of the night. This is a very important event for our village and something that pulls the community together, something that we feel must continue. So if you can help please let us know here or of course come down to the CGRA meeting on the 1st Wednesday of each month.
In the meantime - get those diaries out .....the date of party in the park is yet to be finalised but will be happening on either 4th or 11th July 2015. I will advise the date once confirmed.
I'm sure you will all agree - this really is great news.
