The incredible views in the centre of Balsall Common where Chattaways and other commercial premises were demolished to make way for a Sainsburys could remain a tourist attraction for some time to come.
The next public meeting of Balsall Common Village Residents Association takes place on Tuesday 6th December at the Village Hall on Station Road. Subjects up for discussion include HS2, the potential travellers site on Waste Lane and local planning applications.
Balsall Common’s Police Shop in the main shopping area on Station Road may be put up for relocation as West Midlands Police Authority consider cost cutting options to meet their ever decreasing operating budget.
The spending review could see the shop uprooted and relocated to the Police occupied premises on Holly Lane, removing a central presence and putting a question mark over what to do with Parish Council funded CCTV equipment on the premises which has been instrumental in solving crimes in the village.
