Birmingham Council HouseFind all about exciting and challenging things in your area and speak up for what you do/don’t want!

Councillors: Sir Albert Bore, Kath Hartley and Carl Rice will be there. Our elected Councillors will help to enlighten us and answer questions.

Topics currently intended to inform and create response by you are:

What do you want your City Centre to be like : homes, leisure, shopping, canals, open space.

Visions for movement: Metro extensions, transport links, High Speed Rail, Birmingham Sprint (the bus that thinks it’s a tram!).

Buses: Effects of the Metro extension, getting the 80 bus route to run via The Markets.

So, do come to the next Ladywood Ward meeting at the Council House – sounds good to me and not to be missed!

Venue: Thursday 13 January, 7 to 9pm, Rooms 3-4, The Council House, Victoria Square.

It’s important to have representatives from all social, religious and political sectors.

    The best bits of this meeting were the presentation by Centro’s Head of Commissioning, Rafael Cuesta, and the regular ‘Ladywood News’ by the TNT team (school-based project producing a TV news bulletin). The other presentations on the Big City Plan and Vision for Movement took us no further forward in terms of information than the Forum’s public meeting in November. Though it did give a further group of local people the chance to feedback on the Plan team’s consultation questions.
    Centro have some specific ideas coming forward later in the year to tidy up the bus routes within the inner core area and to launch a branded ‘West Midlands’ style of bus stop. There will be a full consultation opening in the middle of this year.
