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.

Council Tax Increase
Posted 8th April 2016
Comment on this
Dear Fellow Resident,
You will have noticed from your 2016/17 Council Tax Bill that the Cheswick Green Parish Council element has been increased by 10.5%. The increase has been made at the instruction of our Parish Council and compares with the Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council increase of only 1%. The Residents Association has received many complaints regarding this increase and is concerned that it has been implemented without any consultation whatsoever.
Those wishing to formally complain about this situation should write direct to the Leader of Solihull Council:- Councillor Bob Sleigh, Solihull Council, Manor Square, Solihull, B91 3QB

George Burdett
Chairman, Cheswick Green Residents Association
Housing at Blythe Valley Park
Posted 7th April 2016
Comment on this
The planning application for Blythe Valley by Turley acting for IM Properties went live yesterday with 119 documents available from the SMBC website.
The Planning Application reference is PL/2016/00863/MAOOT
The concept appears to be lots and lots of new houses with no provision for a school or doctors surgery. Access points are from Kineton Lane and the existing A34 entrance and exit points.

I have used the link provided to register and comment on the above planning application

"Whilst I am not against the change in use to residential for future development at Blythe Valley I am very concerned that there is no provision for a doctors surgery.
It is beyond belief that 750 residential dwellings and most importantly a care facility for up to 250 people, no doubt elderly does not require the provision of it's own doctors surgery and pharmacy.
It has been proposed that the surgery at Cheswick Green be expanded but work has already commenced on building an additional 220 houses at Cheswick Green. Its surgery's business footing being secure it does not need an additional 750 homes and a 250 place care facility to remain viable.
Unless provision for an additional doctors surgery and pharmacy is included in this application it should be refused.
I do not have sufficient information to comment on the provision of schooling for the Blythe Valley development but anyone with any common sense or forward vision must realise that a doctors surgery is an essential requirement for such a development.
Please refuse planning permission until such provision is incorporated in the plans."
