Updates – Bournville flood risk management

On Tuesday 21st May, we met with the Environment Agency to discuss notices that has been served for exploratory works at Weoley Park, Manor Park and Valley Parkway in Birmingham.

Following a review, and our legal challenge, these works have been paused.

The EA are working on a new plan for consultation and engagement with residents and local organisations/groups, and as a result no works will take place until further notice.

Bournville Village Trust (BVT) is against any works taking place on the parks without prior consideration and consultation/engagement with both us and residents.  To date, we have not approved any ground works.

We have met with and will continue to work with resident reps from our Estates Committee, reps from Weoley Hill and Bournville Village Councils, and a rep from Bournville Freeholders and Leaseholders Association (BFLA) and our local MPs on the Environment Agency’s (EA) flood risk management proposals and concepts, which remain in the early stages of consultation.

We are actively urging the Environment Agency to ensure all residents’ voices are heard through consultation and will continue to work with resident reps, both Village Councils and the BFLA to support this.

If you have a question related to above, you can email our dedicated email bournfrm@bvt.org.uk or call us on 0300 333 6540.
