Sutton Coldfield Rural
At the forefront of our organisation is a commitment to ensure continual communication on all things planning and regeneration in Sutton Coldfield.
We are continually evolving and developing they way we communicate to residents to ensure they have a say in how their local neighbourhood is shaped over the next 20 years.
Founded in 2012, Sutton Coldfield Rural provides a single source for all the latest large-scale planning schemes and regeneration within the ward.
Many residents are concerned this announcement signals the end of their fight to save the Sutton Coldfield green belt, however, from the Council’s point of view, devising a masterplan is a sensible approach. During the recent Birmingham Development plan consultation, developers were lobbying BCC en mass for further green belt to be released to enable up to 10,000 houses. The same pack of developers’ who have land interests on the other green belt sites at Four Oaks and Trinity, will have or will be working away on their own masterplans to get the Council’s strategy thrown out on poor sustainability grounds. There is still plenty of campaigning to do by residents before this part of the green belt is developed on.
