Judo is a sport which is inclusive of all […]

Attract wealth, generate wealth!

For the borough to increase its wealth it needs to attract higher earners which will pay higher council taxes but also spend more at the borough’s businesses. Newly built housing estates don’t seem to encourage this with small plots and even smaller allocation of square footage per room. Several efforts by businesses in the food […]

Roads and facilities

With housing development already planned and agreed, there is a need to ensure there is an appropriate level of sustained development of the road and facilities infrastructure. Each new house will have at least 1 and normally 2 cars, the road structure whilst good, needs to ensure it meets this growth. There are already signs […]

Restore full services at The Alex

Its criminal that people are forced out of town for services that should be on our doorstep. Redditch is ever expanding with more housing developments being approved and Worcs hospital is already stretch way too thin as is! Nothing is as important in Redditch than the restoration of the hospital. The fact that public services […]

Wheelchair friendly

The town centre needs to be more accommodating for wheelchair uses. Especially disabled toilets. There’s only one disabled toilet which is grotty at the hub end of the centre when the rest is shut off. Also playground with actual Swings for wheelchair users. No child like to sit and watch others on a swing. There […]

Rebuild the Rail Station and add a second platform to increase the frequency of train to Birmingham and beyond. While doing so take the opportunity to build on the derelict land between Bromsgrove Street and Edward Street to create a second entrance and drop off area separate from the carpark and a medium density residential […]

Improve shopping centre

Improve the town centre by adding designer shops such as (selfridges, flannels, footlocker), I feel this would be good as we have no up to date shops like this meaning people of redditch much travel elsewhere for shops like there. I feel like we need more bars within the centre which are well managed and […]

Communitiy and Accessiblity

The Redditch rail route is used by many commuters to access work within Birmingham. Currently due to it being considered out of county rail prices are extortionate. Support people in commuting to work and choosing to live in Redditch – park and ride facilities or a faster more direct route and more cost effective. Also, […]

Transport & Town Centre Refurb

There are lots of ideas that could be discussed and worked though. Transport links to near by towns such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Bromsgrove,Solihull, Whythall really need addressing, we are a really awkward place to visit via train or bus, often having to travel to Birmingham first to get anywhere. Also, the town centre needs a good […]

Public transport

Redditch needs a reliable bus service that runs later than 8pm. It will help support evening and night workers and would improve business in the town centre. There are decent restaurants and bars in town, a great theatre and cinema. A bus service that ran later (and better throughout the day) would serve to keep […]

Invest in hospital services. Use the green agenda to drive innovation creating new local businesses to boost employment opportunities. Don’t just look at one area take a […]

5G Rollout

Redditch has amongst the fastest broadband speeds in the West Midlands, along with manufacturers who serve the automotive and aerospace supply chain. This puts us in prime position to be amongst the first for full 5G rollout and so I would like to see more commitment from government and partners on this.

Upmarket bars

I’d like to see more upmarket and well managed bars and restaurants, as well as smoking being managed around the Kingfisher Shopping Centre. When you leave the Shopping Centre all you can smell is smoke and all you can see are cigarette ends on the ground. Alongside this if the space by the Church and […]

Group funding

The local council have messed up their finances over the last couple of years and they have resorted to cutting funding for valuable local charities. I would like to see improved funding and an expansion of spaces for groups of people to meet and give each other support. There are many empty shop units and […]

We need to promote access to the town centre and other public facilities with better transport links. We need amenities which will support our residents, especially those who are disadvantaged or disengaged. We […]
