The sewers in Stirchley have been serving the community for many years but there are parts of the system that need improving.  Severn Trent Water started work in January 2014 on 2 large underground storage tanks in land off Pershore Road and Ripple Road. Work is progressing well and the tanks are almost complete.

Please note that Steve McCabe’s advice centre due to be held on Saturday 3 May will not be at Christ Church, 953 Pershore Road. Instead it will be held for this week only at Selly Park Baptist Church 1042 Pershore Road, this is just down the road.

 

Steve is inviting local residents to come along to his regular Report Back which will give people the opportunity to raise local and national issues which matter to them.
