Local Councils

A couple of stories concerning local councils caught my eye in the paper this morning. First of all was the mess Birmingham Council have made over the sale Harborne Clock Tower, after running around patting themselves on the back over the sale it has been revealed that the tower was sold for a measly £100,000 vastly underpriced. and this is after the Council has spent £80,000 over the last 12 months on scaffolding.

Next we have the case of the once Moseley tram depot at Trafalgar Rd and Moseley Rd, despite repeated warnings from the planning department the now owner a Mr Safdar Zaman seems to be doing exactly what he likes with the Grade II listed building. Whatever they say he takes no notice and won't even attend meetings to try and resolve the matter.

My last gripe is about Solihull Council is now about to evict the protest camp at Meriden that was set up nearly two years ago in opposition to a gypsy encampment. The decision that the camp was illegal was reached last year, but nothing has been done to remove the remaining residents of the site. Though it seems they are prepared to move the protesters.
