Barnt Green is to revisit its Neighbourhood Plan preparations to ensure the parish is ready to deal with future house-building pressures.

Parish chairman Robert Cholmondeley said: “Lickey and Blackwell, along with Cofton Hackett, have now prepared a draft plan and, given that Alvechurch’s plan is sitting with Bromsgrove District Council, I do think we need to consider our own position.

“We now have the uncertainty at Bromsgrove with a Green Belt review and added to that there is the Hearn report.”

Coun Charlie Hotham said that after a Green Belt review, those with Neighbourhood Plans “could have scope to decide where houses might go”. He added: “We don’t want to get caught out.”
