Steve McCabe MP says urgency is required in the talks involving West Midlands Police and Birmingham City Council in an effort to resolve the recurring ‘travellers’ problem which has disproportionately affected certain parts of Birmingham over the past year. Yesterday travellers moved onto Hazelwell Park and Recreation Ground after leaving the exact same site only a few weeks ago.

Steve McCabe MP has joined up with Infertility Network UK and Fertility Fairness, calling on the government to equalise access to IVF treatment for all women across the UK.

Birmingham City Council’s planning department have confirmed that the decision on Selly Park North flood prevention scheme and student accommodation in Selly Oak will be delayed until September.

A decision on the application was scheduled to take place on 18 August but has now been delayed until mid/late September.

Steve McCabe MP has discovered that Selly Oak is set to have more student accommodation than family homes over the next year.

Steve recently pressed the Council on the current level of student accommodation in Selly Oak and approved developments that are due to be built within the next year.

Steve McCabe MP has criticised the lack of enforcement action taken by the Council against developers who continue to breach planning law.

Steve McCabe MP is encouraging well deserving charities and community groups across his constituency to take part in an exciting £2000 give away.

Steve has met with the Schools Minister Nick Gibb MP and demanded the full facts about the school’s finances and the role of the Education funding Agency and the Regional Schools Commissioner. Steve is working closely with local Brandwood Councillors and Save Our Baverstock Association to campaign to save the school.



Severn Trent have told Steve that they believe the water pipe was damaged by a third party and their teams have been on site working hard to isolate the leak and identify what repairs are required. Severn Trent have informed Steve this afternoon that they have now isolated the leak and the repairs are being carried out today and the flooding has now cleared.


Since July 2015 travellers have moved on to the Stirchley site, next to Hunts Road, on four separate occasions. Each time the area is blighted by dumped rubbish, green waste and anti-social behaviour. Local residents have told Steve that they are scared to walk their dogs in the park as they feel intimidated.
