Councillor update on Planning Applications of importance in Moseley & Kings Heath Ward – Sunday 6th May 2007

Below is my own personal list of planning applications that I am keeping an eye on, due to residents raising concerns with me or the applications clearly being contentious.

Drawings and further details on each of these planning application is available on-line at

The application for the rebuilt Texaco garage/Somerfield Supermarket at the corner of Alcester road and Park Hill was refused. The application was clearly unacceptable and I was surprised that Somerfield even submitted the design.

The monstrosity at the corner of School Road and Oxford Road (37 Oxford Road) has also been refused. The applicants will most likely appeal, so it may take some time to get the alterations removed. In the meantime I’m going to try and get the Council to take legal action against the owner for building the boundary wall on Council owned land.

Moseley Golf Club has put a planning application in to convert the vacated parts of Billesley Lane allotments into a practice area. See my YouTube video for more details on this -

There are a number of planning applications from public houses for external smoking areas – most controversial is from the Elizabeth of York pub in Moseley where they want to have a drinking area on the pavement – I’ve objected to this, since the pavement is already narrow here.

An application has gone in to convert 40 Woodbridge Road into a restaurant – this is the retail unit next to the newsagents by the zebra crossing. This will be a test of Moseley’s restriction on change of use to non-retail policy.

Couldn't the EoY find some space out the back for a smoking area, by the car park? It isn't very spacious, but there are fewer pedestrians, and they aren't walking by a main road.

Well done on getting the retrospective planning appllication on waht you rightly call the monsrosity on the corner of School Rd and Oxford Rd turned down. These people knowingly broke the law and should be prosectuted. Our experience in Hall Green is that the Council Officer are wimps and will do anything not to enforce the law against these criminals. You will need to be vigilant This was a beautifull house in a beautifull road that has been raped by a bunch of arrogant tasteless morons
