To be frank, I salute Ruth Sault’s honesty last month (Village Views “Overrun by affordable homes”).
Following the ridiculous onslaught on Barnt Green’s “green belt” by developers, I’m disgusted with Bromsgrove Council’s clandestine cover-up of switching the potential purposes of Barnt Green’s green belt (proposed Fiery Hill site) under the radar and with their stubborn ignorance of villagers’ objections.
In a Tory stronghold, ironically we are moving from big community to alienated community.
I would like to pose a question: would Barnt Greeners benefit from an amalgamation with Birmingham City Council instead, with sizeable amenities and transport?
As opposed to a carefree council that tramples over legitimate widespread planning concerns. We’re fast becoming a new Harborne, stripped bare by a hungry urban sprawl, defended by toothless councillors. Whey are we sacrificing another beautiful area forever?
