We recently submitted comments to Birmingham City Council as part of their Conservation Area Review, which includes the recommendation for the de-designation of Austin Village and Ideal Village (Bordesley) Conservation Areas.

We support the potential of two new Conservation Areas in Acocks Green and Weoley Hill.
