Ward Background

Walmley Village

New Hall Ward covers the neighbourhoods of Thimble End, Walmley Ash and Minworth having the thriving commercial centre of Walmley at its heart. New Hall's southern-most boundary borders the busy M6 motorway covering the land formerly occupied by Minworth Water Treatment Works as well as the open land both east and west of the A38, known locally at this point as the 'Sutton By-Pass'. Much of the Ward is semi-rural, spanning open farmland around Grove End, Over Green and Wishaw to the east of Sutton Coldfield.

The Ward is named after a medieval manor house (now a prestigious hotel), located just off the Walmley Road and boasts an 18th Century water mill, three golf courses; among them Pype Hayes, operated for Birmingham City Council by Mytime Golf. The New Hall Valley Country Park, Plantsbrook Local Nature Reserve as well as Walmley Library and Community Hall are all situated within New Hall.

Walmley centre has retained its village atmosphere despite large-scale residential developments taking place in the immediate surroundings. Although there are only a small number of shops, Walmley possesses a wide range of other services, community facilities and a range of private and public sporting amenities.
