In September you get two for the price of one! As well as the usual Forum meeting Karen Cheney will be leading the selection process for the first part of the Celebrating Communities Fund (info after agenda here).
For this meeting we will be trying something different in that Rob Morris (our Chair) and some of the Committee members will be in the hall whilst everyone else is on Zoom. This is to enable us to try out the technology with a view to having hybrid meetings (in the Hall and on Zoom) going forward.
There is a special item on the Agenda this month as the Forum has been made aware of a proposal to move the post office currently on the corner of Dogpool Lane further up Pershore Road to the Nisa store (almost opposite the BP garage). There is an opportunity to make your views known.
Although it is not in Stirchley we know that many Stirchley residents will be interested in (and affected by) development of the former Fitness First site. A planning application has been lodged and can be found here.
Minutes from the June 2021 meeting are available here. They cover the meeting that took place on Monday 14th June, including topics such as Commonwealth Games Funding, police update around crime figures and road safety, planning issues and an invitation for the Forum to challenge the council as part of the Pioneer Places initiative.
If you would like to attend the next Stirchley Neighbourhood Forum meeting, it will take place on Monday 12th July at 7.30pm, on Zoom. To be added to the newsletter circulation list to recieve the Zoom link, please email stirchley.forumb30[@]gmail.com

The next meeting of the Stirchley Neighbourhood Forum will be on Monday 14th June 2021
Below is the agenda for April’s meeting, taking place on Monday 12th April 2021 online. If you’d like to attend, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be sent the link.
Since the last meeting, the planning application in respect of 1256-1258 Pershore Road (on the corner of Twining Road) has been approved. Subject to IT issues the applicant has agreed to join the meeting.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re not been able to hold our usual monthly forum meetings in public. But technology was worked out and we help our first virtual Stirchley Neighbourhood Forum recently.
Thank you to everyone who attended the meeting. Items arising from our last meeting (way back in March) were discussed, as well as some planning issues, antisocial behaviour and the issue with the trees in Stirchley Park that were accidentally removed by Morrisons. You can read the draft of the September minutes here.
Our next meeting will be on Monday 12th October, again online. If you would like to attend, please sign up to the news letter by emailing email@example.com if you have not already done so.
Sorry for the delay in getting these up, we’ve had some technical issues – still at least you can give them a nice leisurely read over the weekend. These are the minutes from the meeting on 13th January 2020.
As with all our minutes, they’re considered to be draft versions until they’re confirmed at the next meeting.
The draft minutes from our December meeting are now available. The notes are ‘draft’ until we agree them at the January meeting. We are trying to reduce paper and save time so we ask you read them before the meeting.
