Birmingham Core Strategy Public Consultation Venues

There are two opportunities this week for residents of B44 to get the chance to offer their feelings and thoughts on the Birmingham Core Strategy Plan.

Tuesday 8th February

9.15am to 4.45pm

Friday 11th February Asda Perry Barr
One Stop
Walsall Rd
Birmingham B42 1AB
12.30pm to 6.30 pm
