Solihull Local Plan Review
Solihull Local Plan Review Consultation
The Parish Council, along with a majority of respondents to our Local Plan survey of 2 years ago, do not wish to see further development in Dickens Heath.
However, housing numbers are being imposed by the Government, and Solihull MBC are under pressure to deliver more houses than those already included in its Plan. IF additional housing is to come to Dickens Heath, then it MUST also deliver something for the community.
SMBC have published a revised version of the Local Plan for consultation – which includes a reduced number of houses for Dickens Heath, but also has lost the benefit of a community sports hub.
The full details can be seen at: www.solihull.gov.uk/lpr
And comments can be submitted by going to: http://solihull.jdi-consult.net/localplan/
The deadline for comments is March 15th 2019
SMBC Officers will be holding drop in information sessions:
Dickens Heath Library – Saturday February 9th 2019 11am to 4pm (closed 1 to 2pm)
Asda, Parkgate, Shirley – Tuesday February 26th 2019 4pm to 7pm
The Parish Council will be discussing its response to the consultation at its meeting on Tuesday February 12th 2019 at 7.15pm
