Thanks for attending January’s meeting

Thanks to everyone who braved the storm and came out to January’s meeting. There was plenty of information to be shared with the usual planning and police updates as well as questions from Stirchley residents and an update from Councillor Mary Locke.

But if in the mean time you want to make any comments on planning applications mentioned in the meeting or any of the consultations that were discussed at the meeting, you’ll find the details below.
