Blythe Valley Housing - Differing Views
Posted 22nd  May 2016
Comment on this
You will probably have received a newsletter from the parish council concerning the planned housing development at Blythe Valley.
Whilst the Residents Association shares many of the views within the newsletter it differs in that it does NOT share the view that the new development needs to be “practically connected with the existing services, shops and facilities located in Cheswick Green village centre”.
Cheswick Green Residents Association is of the view that Blythe Valley needs its own facilities and that increased connectivity will inevitably lead to the two developments merging into one huge residential area.

Posted 9th May 2016
Comment on this
In consultation with Jan Noble, Cheswick Green Parish Council has arranged for the planting of an Acer Rubrum October Glory tree on the Village Green in memory of all the hard work that the late Chris Noble carried out on behalf of all residents of Cheswick Green Parish over many years. The tree is located opposite the junction of Coppice Walk with Cheswick Way.
A Dedication Ceremony will be arranged in due course. Details will be publicised and all will be welcome to attend.
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
Email: rsleigh@solihull.gov.uk
