16th January 2017
What a fantastic turn out! It was brilliant to see so many local people come along to the public consultation. We had a steady turn out with nearly 200 people sign in between 1pm and 6pm. Residents were able to speak with Waterloo Homes about the affordable housing development on the Stratford Road which is due to on site in March 2017. Spitfire were there to talk about Aylesbury House development and the opportunities that holds. Solihull Council arrived at 3.30pm, hot foot from their Local Plan consulation in Knowle and answered many of your questions about housing development in the parish. Parish Councillors and representatives from the Residents Association and the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group were there to talk through your concerns and hopes for the village.
The steering group are now going to meet to assimilate all of your comments and ideas and do two things: with HHPC, create an informed response to SMBC draft Local Plan; finalise the questionaire which will then be sent to ALL parish residents for the Neighbourhood Plan.
Once again, thank you to all for your thoughts, vierws and comments.
