Bournville's 120 year old ban on off-licences and pubs comes to an end

In a decision that has shocked and disappointed local Conservative councillors, a newsagents on the Mary Vale Road has been granted an alcohol licence, thus bringing to an end Bournville’s 120 year old tradition in banning pubs and off licences.

On the 29th September the Birmingham Licencing Committee granted the small newsagents on Mary Vale road an alcohol licence.

At the hearing the application was opposed by Conservative councillor Rob Sealey. He brought with him a petition containing the signatures of over 300 local residents who also opposed the application Councillor Sealey argued that;

  • these premises were totally unsuitable to sell alcohol being so small and located in a residential area
  • An alcohol licence will encourage alcohol aggravated anti social behaviour around the area and in Cotteridge Park.
  • Bournville’s traditions and heritage should be respected.

    Unfortunately the Committee decided to grant the licence.

Hundreds of residents support Conservative Councillors as they oppose new off licence in Bournville

This small newsagent on Mar Vale Road has applied to Birmingham’s Licensing Authority for an alcohol licence to sell alcohol from 10am up to 9pm Monday to Sunday.

The intention is that it should cease to be a newsagents and instead become a full blown off licence.

Your Conservative councillors have distributed leaflets inviting residents in the area to give their views on this proposed application. The leaflet informs residents that the councillors oppose this application and will attend the hearing on the 29th September to argue that;

  • These premises are totally unsuitable to sell alcohol being so small and located in a residential area.
  • It will encourage alcohol aggravated anti social behaviour around the area and in Cotteridge Park.
  • If this licence is granted then Bournville will be diminished; no longer able to uniquely claim to be a ‘dry’ suburb.

So far hundreds have replied back to the Conservative councillors giving support to their opposition.

Wheelie bins are on the way; and your Conservative Councillors oppose their introduction

This Labour Council scheme will cost £60 million and bring few benefits to the area say your Conservative councillors.

The delivery of wheelie bins to properties in Cotteridge, Bournville and Stirchley will take place over the next couple of months, with the actual collection service beginning in the new year.

The scheme brought in by the Labour Council to replace black bags and waste boxes with wheelie bins has cost the council £60 million and is just typical of Labour extravagance.

Your Bournville Conservative councillors have consistently opposed the introduction of wheelie bins for two very good reasons.

  • There are far more important things this city could spend £60 million on. Our libraries are under threat and the Labour council has already announced that Tiverton Road swimming pool is to close. The Labour Council has cut the street cleaning service leading to our roads and pavements beginning to suffer from litter and graffiti.
  • With each household having two wheelie bins it will be very difficult for some households to find the space to store them. Many of these wheelie bins, instead, will be left out on the street or stored in the front garden in full view, particularly in those roads dominated by terrace housing. We fear that parts of Stirchley, Cotteridge and Bournville will be seriously disfigured by the proliferation of wheelie bins in full public view.

Stirchley Co-op; please clean up this appalling grafitti

Your local Conservative councillors are once again urging the Co-op Superstore in Stirchley to clean up the huge, ugly graffiti that defaces the side of their building.

The graffiti has been growing over the last few years, spreading out along the length of the side wall facing the FarmFoods carpark. Passers by, either on foot or on the bus, must be shocked to see such a large amount of graffiti being tolerated on a supermarket wall. No other supermarket would tolerate this..

Your local Conservative councillors consider this graffiti a shocking eyesore and its non removal an insult to Stirchley Village. .

Come on Co-op, clean up your act.
