(Cotteridge Primary School falls within the Stirchley Ward boundaries)
Calling all residents of Breedon, Shirley and Heathcote Roads!
A small group of parents at Cotteridge Primary School have formed the ‘Safer Together School Streets’ group. They are currently working hard to help make the roads around the school safer for residents and children at the busy school drop off and pick up times. They hope this will also enable more green, active travel for school families.
The group will be putting in an expression of interest for the Birmingham City Council ‘School Streets’ scheme on 30th November. They hope this will enable them to discuss several solutions to make roads safer during morning drop off and afternoon pick up.
Please note these are NOT permanent road closures and are different to the Low Traffic Neighbourhood scheme where planters permanently block the road.
Safer Together School Streets group are currently seeking opinions of families at school, and are keen to involve the local residents (several of whom have completed the form linked below already).
If you live on or know anyone who lives on Breedon, Shirley or Heathcote roads please complete or forward them this link: https://forms.office.com/e/txqvi3nqw6. Perhaps help a neighbour to complete it if they don’t enjoy technology.
The deadline for this survey is: 1200 (Noon) on Tuesday 28th November
To get in contact with the group, email: Safertogetherschoolstreets@gmail.com

No commercial waste can legally be accepted at any of the MHRC’s and any such material will be turned away.
