Stockland Green Ward
The diversity of its people is reflected in the diversity of Stockland Green's geography. Although predominantly residential in character, the Ward is dissected by three principal roads - Tyburn Road (A38), Gravelly Hill (A5127) and Marsh Hill/Reservoir Road (A4040) while the M6 motorway forms its southern boundary. These roads have a considerable impact on accessibility within the Ward. In particular the area between Gravelly Hill and Tyburn Road, known as The Foot, is perceived as cut off and remote
Notwithstanding its predominantly residential character, one of the City's largest and most successful industrial estates - the Gravelly Industrial Park - straddles Stockland Green's southern boundary, and part of the large Bromford industrial area lies between Tyburn Road and the recently completed Heartlands Spine Road.
The diversity of the Ward is reflected in its topography. There are numerous hills (indeed it is the hilliest ward in the City), a rock outcrop along Tyburn Road, two key areas of open space in Bleak Hill Recreation Ground and Brookvale Park (the latter of which contains a sizeable lake), considerable tree coverage and various water courses, including the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal.
