The new trial banning right hand turns at Chelmund's Cross started on Sunday. Council trying to tackle traffic problems on the Chester Road, but many residents are still calling for the cycle lane to be ripped out and two lanes restored.

The wonderful word of planning applications: Last week - private foul drainage sewer and surface water pond. This week - external spa garden. Not related - fortunately.

Ah but did you get lunch in the lunch break? Or did they retire to a room for private scoffing? I'm fine thanks, hope you are enjoying the new role.

Never had a Full Council that long - but Solihull's 51 members which is probably quite a bit smaller than many. Planning tends to be the longest for me.

I've just realised that by an odd quirk my longest and shortest meetings as a Local Democracy Reporter came almost back-to-back. Planning last Wednesday - four hours. TPO panel on Monday afternoon - four minutes.

Based on a cursory glance of the council calendar, can't see a new date has been set to consider the much-delayed M42 services schemes.

Solihull residents can now have their say on plans for the "people mover" which is set to serve the airport, NEC and new interchange station.

Hi Darren, I dropped you an email last week. Happy to chat about getting something together on this in the next couple of weeks.
