Dawberry Fields Development

DTZ property Developers talked at our meeting 9th July about their role in the Dawberry Fields Housing Development which is planned for the old Allotments fields.  There are a number of issues which were raised about the development plans:
1) Who will receive the money from the sale?
2) Is there any guarantee that the money will be put back into Brandwood Ward/local area?
3) That the Current Plan did not have enough detail for residents to make an informed decision
4)There was still no specified number of housing units ie concern that the current number of 48 would increase…
5) That not enough local residents have been consulted ( approx 250 have received notification)
6) That there would only be 1/3 of the allotments remaining …
DTZ  will ask Birmingham Property Services to confirm how the allocation of funds from the sale to provide allotments and open space improvements will be guaranteed

  1. I was not consulted about this, nor in fact did we know that there were any new plans drawn up, this development directly affects our home.

    • Hi Annie
      You need to go to the planning link at Birmingham City Council which is on this page- unfortunately all I can suggest is that you start knocking neighbours doors to get their opinion. There is one resident who has already started a petition but has yet to forward it to us here.
      Also contact the local Brandwood Councillors- please see link on this website.
      Our next meeting is 5th September at Grove road Social Centre 7-8.30 or email me to get on our database.. Good luck , Karen Chair Brandwood Forum
