There is a meeting of the Acocks Green Ward Committee tonight at 7pm at Acocks Green Library. The meeting has the following main issues on the agenda:
1) An update on the Warwick Road Improvements Project. This has already led to work in Acocks Green and the biggest part of the project – major changes to the Warwick Road between Station Road and Woodcock Lane in Acocks Green Village will soon begin. This will be a chance to question senior Transportation officers about the work.
2) Wheelie Bin Roll Out – Kevin Mitchell, Assistant Director from Fleet & Waste Management will attend the meeting to give an update on the roll out of wheelie bins to the areas served by Redfern Road Depot, including Acocks Green.
3) Planning Applications – the usual update on planning applications in the ward.
4) Under any other business there is likely to be a discussion about Amey’s latest tree removal plans which cover 2 trees; one opposite 920 Stockfield Road (for structural integrity) and, controversially, the removal of the tree on the Island in Acocks Green Village opposite the Inn on the Green. For Acocks Green Focus Group’s take on it see here. I am very concerned that Amey are being overzealous in their interpretation of the rules and remain to be convinced that this particular tree needs to be removed.Leave a comment
