Diary Date - Yardley District Committee

Yardley District Committee
Thursday 18 July 2013 - 2pm
Committee Rooms 3 and 4, Council House
And you can now watch online here.

As this is the first meeting of the year, we have some administrative business to take care of as part of a pretty packed programme.

 Items on the agenda will be
  • Election of chair
  • Appointment of district corporate parenting champion
  • Fire Services and Police representative 
  • Regulation and Enforcement devolved services out turn 12/13
  • Yardley District Budget Monitoring - April to May 2013
  • District Income and Expenditure Report 12/13
  • Tackling anti-social behaviour locally
  • Housing Department Annual Tenants' visiting programme
  • Special Educational Needs Commissioning
  • Council housing investment programme - environmental improvements 
  • Feedback on £2m community chest top slicing for youth unemployment action programme 
  • Leisure facilities transformation 
This is a meeting open to the public and we've certainly seen significant use of the online streaming - far more have watched online than have attended these meetings in a year.

Erection of single storey rear extension

2013/05125/PA - 93 Olton Boulevard East, B27 7NH

2013/05005/PA - 89 Tynedale Road, B11 3QX
Installation of a footway crossing

2013/04805/PA - Land adjacent to 70 & 91 Francis Road, B27 6LT
Erection of 12 no. two bedroom houses with ancillary works and creation of a turning head
Thoughts on this one would be welcome. There's already outline permission for building on this site and the design includes a turning head to allow vehicles like refuse trucks to turn properly. This would see the demolition of the existing works buildings and the whole site used for housing.
