Welcome to the Sutton Coldfield District Pages

Coleshill Street, Sutton Coldfield

Sutton Coldfield is the largest parliamentary constituency in Birmingham and is sub-divided into the four electoral Wards of Sutton Four Oaks, Sutton New Hall, Sutton Trinity and Sutton Vesey. Sutton Coldfield, covers just over one fifth of Birmingham's administrative area and borders Staffordshire and Warwickshire countryside to the north and east. There is a map attached at the base of the page which shows the boundaries and when magnified, the roads and amenities.

Sutton Coldfield's recorded history spans one thousand years. The story of the town is enhanced by the activity of Bishop Vesey, who played a significant role in securing the future of Sutton Park which forms Sutton Coldfield's most dominant geographical feature. Much of the district is green space. New Hall Valley Country Park, Plantsbrook Nature Reserve, five golf courses (two are Birmingham City Council Golf Courses operated by 'My Time') and most of Birminghams green belt provide the Sutton Coldfield with its major asset. There are many public and privately owned historic buildings throughout the town; some are covered by the conservation areas of Four Oaks and the town centre.

Funding Opportunities

Community Chest

For 2014/15 all wards in Sutton Coldfield will receive a Community Chest allocation. This allocation enables the wards to fund schemes which support ward and neighbourhood working or contribute to extending community engagement, cohesion and empowerment.

Projects supported through this fund must also demonstrate that they support the District's priorities and Birmingham’s Community Strategy 2026.

Generally, any properly constituted not-for-profit organisation may submit a project proposal. You should first talk with the District Ward Support Officer to find out about what outcomes and locally identified priorities the Ward or District Committee is likely to support and the money that it has available – contact Olive O'Sullivan on 0121 303 2355 or e-mail her at olive_o'

There may be a number of other funding opportunities available, such as Big Lottery Funding for example. Your District Ward Support Officer can give you more information on this.
