Sutton: Vesey Ward
Sutton Vesey is one of Sutton Coldfield's four Wards, lying to the south of the town Centre and Sutton Park. It includes the neighbourhoods of Boldmere, Banners Gate and parts of New Oscott and Wylde Green.
Vesey Ward constitutes a well established residential area with New Oscott and Boldmere being the main commercial centres.
New Oscott is located at the busy junction of Chester Road, Jockey Road and Kings Road. There is a small retail park offering a good range of outlets, a large supermarket and Brampton Hall Community Centre all occupying the former Princess Alice Orphanage site. This centre is a valued local amenity serving people from a wide area including Streetly, Sutton Coldfield, Erdington and Kingstanding.
Boldmere is a busy local shopping centre serving adjoining residential areas with a range of convenience goods and services. Boldmere Library provides a focal point for local residents.
The Ward benefits from several areas of open space, including Boldmere Golf Course at the southern-most edge of Sutton Park with the Ward boundary extending around both Powell's and Wyndley Pools as well as Princess Alice Park accessed off Avery Road or Churchill Road, New Oscott. A play area and kiosk facilities at the Banners Gate entrance to Sutton Park offer a range of inclusive play equipment.
In addition, there are some little-known sites of historic interest within Vesey Ward. An early settlement area at the junction of Birmingham and Wylde Green Roads has been defined as an area of potential archaeological importance and archaeological remains survive in Gibbet Hill Wood, off Antrobus Road.
A ward map is attached at the base of this page. This shows the boundaries that came into effect on 10 June 2004.
