Local Democracy in Action

This evening I will be chairing Sparkbrook Ward Committee. Respect councillors, council officers, and local residents will meet to discuss Sparkbrook concerns and the action being taken to address them. I am really proud of our ward committee. It is among the best attended, if the not the best, in the city.

Some of the issues on the agenda include a report from the Constituency Parks Manager on Calthorpe Park Interactive Play Area, the proposed Terms of Reference for Sparkbrook Education group, and an introduction from the Cabinet Member for Children, Young People, and Families on Preventing Violent Extremism.

It promises to be an interesting evening.

Sparkbrook Ward Committee will start at 6.30pm in Clifton Primary School, St Paul's Road, Balsall Heath, B12 8LY. There is a map here. All welcome.
