…to save the wildlife area by Thimblemill pool.
Next Wednesday councillors on Sandwell Council's Planning Committee will be visiting the area which the Recreation Club want to be cleared and allow a Worcestershire based property developer to build 13 three and four-bedroomed homes on the site.
Local residents want to save this last piece of uncultivated wildlife area in Smethwick, and over 1100 people signed Kelly Ahmed's petition calling on the planning committee members to reject the application.
You can help!
Local people are entitled to lobby members of the planning committee to show how strong we feel about the need to preserve this land bordering on to the pool. The Committee members will arrive at the Recreation Club area at around 3pm and although the Club will not allow the public access, we will ensure the councillors come out to meet with anyone outside the gates of the club in Thimblemill Road to hear their views.
Later, at 5pm members of the public will be allowed to attend the planning committee and listen to the arguments and again make clear to the councillors the strong level of local opposition.
3pm at The Thimblemill Recreation Centre Gates
5pm at Sandwell Council House in Oldbury
You can make a difference!
