Quick update: concerns about 50 Wake Green Road

by Councillor Claire Spencer

Some of you will be aware of the rather sad state of 50 Wake Green Road in Moseley, which has been recently publicised in a Daily Mail article. I have just received this update from Julie Taylor, Principal Conservation Officer at Birmingham City Council:

We are currently in correspondence with Chivers Commercial regarding this site, and we have highlighted our concerns regarding the condition of the building and an unwillingness for this to continue. We have agreed a way forward for the 2 missing fence panels to be reinstated in order to improve security and for a temporary hardboard floor to be laid over the existing floor in order to allow prospective purchasers to view the property.

I have asked Chivers to keep my Enforcement colleagues and myself informed of progress regarding the sale. I have also reminded them that their client has a duty of care towards the building and that the deteriorated state should be reflected in the asking price.


Vote Labour’s David Jamieson in the WMPCC by-election!

Following the sad death of our Police and Crime Commissioner Bob Jones, a by-election has been called for Thursday August 21st – two weeks today. We have chosen David Jamieson to be our candidate – a former Transport Minister who also has experience of being on the Police and Crime Panel.

In a recent letter to citizens, David Jamieson writes:



This Government will have cut over 1,500 West Midlands Police Officers by next March. Little wonder that some types of crime are once again on the increase. But in the 2 years since Bob Jones was elected he started up recruitment again with 450 new Police Officers going on to the beat. I will carry on Bob’s proud record of recruiting Police Officers, keeping them on the beat and I will not allow the privatisation of core policing services.



My promises to you. I will:

*Recruit Police Officers, despite the Government’s cuts;
*Keep Police Community Support Officers, as they provide vital support to Police Officers;
*Protect Neighbourhood Policing Teams;
*Stop the privatisation of the Police, by ensuring they are accountable to the community, not to company shareholders;
*Make sure that police officers are on the beat, not behind a desk.

We appreciate how inconvenient it is to have a by-election in the middle of August, but your votes matter to us, and they matter to the quality of policing in our region. So turn out, vote, and tell a friend!

If you have questions for David, he tweets @D_C_Jamieson, or you can email him on david@wmpcc.org.uk. If you have questions about polling day, please email claire4mkh@gmail.com or tweet @mkhlabour.
