Our Achievements

2014: Selly Oak New Road: Persuaded BCC to reconsider the final phase of the Selly Oak New Road and revert to the original route as the preferred option.

2014: Bristol Rd improvements: Persuaded BCC to extend pavement improvements along the whole length of the district centre (work now started near Oak Tree lane). Secured a delay in implementing a 20mph limit on the Bristol Rd in Bournbrook until the Selly Oak New Road is completed, thus avoiding further rat running on Gibbins Rd.

2014: Helped St Mary's Primary School with their travel plan. Road alternations on Lodge Hill Rd and Gibbins Rd are planned including a 20mph limit on Lodge Hill Rd.

2014: Persuaded BCC Planing Committee to reject a 10 bed house in multiple occupancy on Hubert Rd although it was later approved on a technicality.


Major planning applications and appeals that we have commented on where we agree with the outcome:

- Selly Oak Centre (appeal in progress).
- Large HMO in 223 Tiverton Rd - most of the extensions applied to the building will now be removed but some can be retained.
