The Coronation of King Charles III
The coronation of King Charles III will take place on Saturday 6th May at Westminster Abbey. During the Ceremony the King will be crowned alongside Camilla the Queen Consort.
Hunnington Parish Council is liaising with Romsley Parish Council and other local groups with a view to holding a “Picnic in the Park” type event on Sunday 7th May. Residents (plus family and friends) are invited to bring their own picnic (including alcohol) to Romsley Recreation Ground between 2-6pm. As an alternative a special aftern0on tea box will be available to buy and pre order instead.
The plan is to have a family friendley DJ for the afternnoon and hopefully a tribute act to close the aftern0on plus a few childrens rides and a bouncy castle. Watch this space for updates!
Bluebird Site Update
The demolition phase is largely completed and construction work will begin early March. Two separate contractors are involved – Malvern Homes will be converting the Administration and Welfare buildings into apartments, while Bellway Homes will be building the 89 houses behind them.
Additional detailed documents such as the road plan have been added to the Bromsgrove Planning Portal under the original reference 19/00592/FUL and the link to the planning portal is here. Discussions are still ongoing between the contractors and Bromsgrove Highways regarding traffic calming measures around the site. Hunnington Parish Council (HPC) have expressed concerns and the need to have appropriate traffic calming measures and will continue to do so.
If residents have any concerns during construction (such as footpath access) then please do not hesitate to express your concerns to HPC via email@example.com
Balmoral Garage Development (updated 9th March)
The Balmoral Garage has now relocated to a new site in Worcester and a planning application has been submitted by Kiwi for 4 detached houses to be built on the site. The application can be seen on the Bromsgrove Planning Portal using reference 22/01436/FUL and a link to the Planning Portal can be found here.
A number of residents have expressed concerns that the proposed dwellings are not in keeping with the rest of Hunnington. Hunnington Parish Council agree with this sentiment and have also submitted detailed comments. Kiwi attended the Council meeting on the 8th March and stated that they are keen to respond to local concerns. The plans have therefor been revised and will shortly be resubmitted to the Planning Portal.
