MARCH 2020

Predictably, there are now around 300 sites, mostly in our Green Belt, jostling for the jackpot: an “APPROVED” stamp on an application to turn the fields they outline into yet another housing estate.

‘Hostile’ plans for Green Belt

Early last year the substantial Bromsgrove District Plan document was marketed depicting benign agency models alongside an almost impenetrably extensive questionnaire (think developer site hoarding only as part of an exam).

Our democracy is a failure

Month on month your pages reflect the gradual decline of our so-called democracy. Our elected representatives at local and national level are abrogating their responsibilities to the legal establishment and the general public.

Spend our money on Cofton, please

Can I say how appalled I was to read that some undisclosed amount left over from Cofton’s section 106 money would be spent on the Lickey toposcope (News in Brief, February 2020).

Too many people on the planet?

Last month’s letters and Village View reflected the current media emphasis on ecological issues, but avoided referring to a major contributor  – human beings.

Thanks to hall volunteers

I have seen first-hand how much effort, expertise and thought has been put into planning and the legal side of the new Cofton Village Hall by the Trustees.

Hall has room for post office

People think I am a bit mad when I say that I think the downstairs committee room of Alvechurch Village Hall would make an ideal post office for the village.

‘Cowardly’ note left on carer’s car
Posted on February 27 2020 at 3:20:24

To the individual who left a typed/printed note on a car outside Malvern Grange Flats on Greenhurst Drive in Barnt Green: this obscene and abusive note left on a carer’s car, parked while on duty, is not being taken lightly.

The wording was very unpleasant and contained various swear words, all of which was intended to intimidate, and the note has been photographed by the carer.

I have spoken to the neighbours near to Malvern Grange, who were horrified at the note.

Windmill Hill Care would like to say that although carers can make mistakes parking while on duty, it is not intentional or done with malice. On this occasion the carer had not parked incorrectly or blocked any drive or bend on this road.

This was a coward’s way of dealing with a situation. If the author had the decency to leave a polite note with contact details, it would of course be dealt with.

What a shame that individuals like this live in our village.

Jackie Grant RN, Windmill Hill Care

Only joking?

In reference to the letter in February titled:  You just can’t get the staff. . .  is this individual for real?
