Harborne Housing Liaison Board
The Harborne Housing Liaison Board represents council residents across the ward, and works with other community and representative groups to ensure that the voices of all tenants are heard.
We aim to improve some of the key issues affecting the Harborne Ward, including:
- lack of street lighting
- lack of youth facilities
- overgrown trees
- general parking.
To support the youth issues in the area, which is currently causing a great deal of ASB, we will continue to work in partnership with the local schools, police and tenant groups in ensuring young people are heard through further youth extravaganzas and workshops.
The Harborne Housing Liaison Board's achievements include:
- installing security gates to stop elderly residents being harassed by antisocial residents
- painting yellow lines in Metchley Lane to improve the safety of residents
- repairing the fence and birdbath at Cadleigh Gardens
- providing better lighting at Cadleigh Gardens to improve security for the elderly residents
- working in partnership with Brumcan and other Recycling organisation to provide bins in the area
- providing lighting in Marsland Close to prevent antisocial behaviour
- cutting back schrubs and clearing Cadliegh Gardens
- erecting fencing on the front wall section of Marsland Close
- working with an organisation called Synconium to work with local youths
- provided security barrier on Marsland Close
- Merryfield Grove 'No parking' sign
- erected fencing on Weatheroaks.
