The Co-op in Stirchley finally removes the appalling graffiti

It is good to see that the Co-op in Stirchley has finally responded to calls, not least from the local Conservative team, to remove the appalling graffiti that has blighted the side of their building for at least three years.

The graffiti has been clearly visible to pedestrians as they shop in that area as well as to passing bus and car users travelling along the Pershore Road.

Let us hope that from now on the Co-op keep their building free from such ugly graffiti.

Lidl wants to come to Stirchley

Lidl, the cut price supermarket chain, has submitted a planning application to redevelop the Fitness First leisure site on the Pershore Road into a Lidl supermarket.

Although such a supermarket would be very popular in the area, it raises the question; why does Stirchley have to lose its only leisure facility in order to gain such a popular supermarket?

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.
