Driving around Edgbaston the past couple of days, it’s really noticeable how much investment is going into the area from the Conservative Council.
We’ve had a number of roads resurfaced since June (and the one local one which was promised and then not done, Greenfield Crescent, was only postponed because the landlords for that area – Calthorpe Estates -indicated they planned some investment in the road so it was thought best to wait for that).
As reported last week, a community vegetable and fruit garden is currently being installed on the Waterworks Estate off Monument Road, and this week major lighting upgrading work is being carried out along Augustus Road.
I was in the road this morning, talking to residents and the engineers on site. It’s certainly good to see so much investment in the ward right now.
