Brandwood Forum Meeting 13th Feb

I am delighted to have Leanne Youngston of Walkers Heath fame and more recently Active Parks as our special guest at our meeting this coming Thursday. We will be discussing ideas which might help improve Brandwood,  as well as discussing the continuing saga of us not being allowed to mark out a football pitch at Dawberry fields Park( even though we have the money!!)

So please come along and have your say! We have a small amount of money and need to decide on the best way to spend it wisely and thereby improve the ward for the most amount of people…

Meeting begins at 7.00. I look forward to seeing you, Karen Osborne, Chair

What’s happening to Sports facilities in Brandwood ? Consultation 28th August

Birmingham City Council is facing a big challenge, having to cut the budget we can control by half over seven years.  In the past we have often made changes to improve our services and get better value for money.  But we now face cuts in government funding on a scale that has never been seen before. ( Please click on  Green Paper attachment below)

We will need to make big changes to balance the books in the years ahead.  These changes will have an impact on everyone in the city, so we want to discuss them with you before going ahead.

The key question we are seeking to answer is:

How can we continue to provide essential services to residents and guide the city through such difficult times, whilst supporting greater fairness and future prosperity?

 We will need to be clearer on our priorities and ensure that we only spend money on things that support those priorities.  We will need to develop new structures and ways of working with services such as the NHS.  And we will need to work with the people of Birmingham to get maximum value from all the resources available to the city.

  • District wide session on 16/7/13 6.30pm – 8pm @ Stirchley Community Centre and Indoor Bowls Centre, Pershore Road, Stirchley
