An Update on Bloor Homes Golf Course Consultation


Yesterday Bloor Homes held a consultation exhibition at the Hollymoor Centre yesterday to get residents’ views on their proposed redevelopment of North Worcestershire Golf Course

The consultation was more focused on finding out what kinds of things residents would like to see on the site, if it is redeveloped, rather than on whether or not it should be redeveloped at all. So far, though, most of the feedback I have had before yesterday’s event has pointed to residents’ not wanting the site to be built on at all.

It is also still zoned to remain as open space in Birmingham Council’s overall planning framework. Bloor are likely to submit an outline plan in the autumn to try to change that though, and that is why it is important that people make their views known, whatever they are, in the coming weeks.

Local Labour Councillor Andy Cartwright and I were at the consultation for part of yesterday, and we were able to listen to a number of the residents who were able to come along. We are keen to hear from all residents, though, whether or not you were able to make it along to the Bloor event. In the time left before Bloor submit their plan to the Council, please do continue to let me and your other local representatives know your views. Find out how to get in touch here.
