Fiery Hill Road realignment

Reuben Bellamy, Planning Director for CALA Homes writes:

“We will be delivering leaflets to approx. 500 homes in Barnt Green around the site informing them of the issues relating to the application to change the approved re-alignment of FHR.  The leaflet gives a link to the following website; www.fieryhillroad.com.

 The website is live now but, with the holiday season, responses to questions may be a bit slower than normal.   The website contains the information on the leaflets but also plans and the Mode report.”

Wishing you a Happy Christmas

We hope you have enjoyed the festive lights in the village this year.

Events to look forward to in 2016 include the Sport Relief Mile on 20th March, the Shindig theatre on 16th April and Barnt Green’s Open Gardens over the weekend of 2nd and 3rd July.

Whilst continuing to battle  with the perennial problems related to all parking issues, possible new ventures for the parish council in 2016 include the creation of a footway in Parker’s Piece to encourage access to the wider countryside and public toilets in a village centre location.

We always look forward to hearing from you on whatever topic!

All of us at Barnt Green Parish Council wish all residents, businesses and visitors a heartily happy Christmas and a successful New Year.

Bus shelter lighting

At the parish council meeting held on 2nd December, members agreed to install a light in the Hewell Road bus shelter .  We hope this will help to improve the facility during the dark winter months.
