May’s meeting of the Civic Society had updates on Brierley Hill in Bloom and the Christmas Festival; established some targets to make a difference in the town centre and discussed planning applications in the area.
In 1944 Brierley Hill UDC published its ‘master plan’ for the future of the town. It gave the first recorded mention of the ‘new’ road for Brierley Hill – opened 64 years later as Venture Way, set out plans for new homes and a new Civic Centre. One has to wonder how influential the plan was in the development of the area, but followers of the current Brierley Hill Area Action Plan might feel that the picture of the plan does look strangely familiar!
AGM of the Friends of Marsh Park is to be held on Wednesday 28th October 2009 at St Michael’s Church Brierley Hill, commencing at 7.00 pm. Anyone who is interested in the development of this lovely Park and the nearby Lawyer’s Field is welcome to attend, and hopefully be willing to join the Friends’ group.d
