Highways maintenance and management company Amey are to consult members of the public on roadworks planned to be carried out in Northfield constituency.

Previously, residents would address any concerns through their ward councillor who would then feed back to Amey who manage highways on behalf of Birmingham City Council. In a new move, consultation roadshows will be held around the city so that people can feedback directly to Amey staff.

The roadshow detailing works planned for the next two years in Northfield will be combined with the Selly Oak show and held at Cocks Moors Woods Leisure Centre in Kings Heath on Tuesday 13 November between 3 pm and 7pm.  The plans include streetlighting replacement works, road repairs and footpath works.

Residents will be able to comment on plans and key members of staff will also be on hand to answer any questions Northfield people may have about the specific programme or the contract in general.

John Sunderland, Business Director at Amey, said “These roadshows mark a new step for us in our relationship with people who live in the city. We really welcome the chance to hear their views and take on board their comments to inform the way we work.

Councillor Tahir Ali, cabinet member for development, jobs and skills, said  “Balancing the needs and desires of so many varied groups and individuals across the city is a tricky act, especially on a topic which affects everyone, like roads. I hope as many people as possible come along to take advantage of the chance to make their voices heard.”

The Northfield and Selly Oak roadshow is the first one to be held with other dates and locations are outlined below. The roadshows for Edgbaston / Hall Green and Yardley / Hodge Hill districts are due to be held in the week commencing 26 November with venues yet to be confirmed.

Event details:
Date: Tuesday 13th November
Time: 3-7pm
Venue: Cocks Moors Woods Leisure Centre

  1. Will they actually listen?

    Birmingham City Council and Amey promised those in Kingstanding that where street lights are right close to peoples windows, they would use less bright street lights, yet still went ahead and installed full brightness ones. Destroying peoples healthy sleep.

  2. my understanding is there is a consultation 3pm to 7pm Holloway Hall b31 1tt. Technically its in bartley green, but i always think of it as northfield.

  3. amey have cancelled!!!
    I’m afraid we will not be holding our roadshow at the Community Centre tomorrow as originally planned as we have realised that the vehicle that we are using will be too big for your car park. People that were due to attend have been notified of the change in venue so we expect that you should not be getting anybody turn up tomorrow to see us. Can I also request that if you have any of our posters up which I emailed to you several weeks ago please could you write on where the new venue is to be? This is:

    Tesco, Quinton Superstore, Ridgacre Road, B32 1EG. Alternatively I attached a new poster.

    Please accept my apologies for the short notice with this and if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.

    Kind Regards,

    Katie
