Fulford Green Proposal

During early December 2023, Tidbury Green Parish Council were approached by Summix FHS Developments LLP (Summix) who in previous years had promoted land for development to the South of Tidbury Green, referred to as Fulford Green. Their proposal at the time was to create a sustainable garden village with approximately 1,800 homes, a new high street, a primary school and new public parkland. At the time Tidbury Green Parish Council strongly objected to the proposal.

Summix, advised that during 2023, that they as landowners, were approached by SMBC to consider providing the land required to enable a local flood alleviation scheme along Norton Lane to be delivered.
Additionally, Summix held discussions with SMBC’s Highways Team as to how it may be able to assist in improving traffic safety in the area.

Consequently, they advised that they were looking at an enabling development to in their words, “help solve the flooding and road safety matters”.

Summix requested a meeting with Tidbury Green Parish Council to discuss plans for the flood alleviation scheme, highways improvements and to share details of what an enabling development could look like.

Tidbury Green Parish Council met (via Video conference) with representatives from Summix on 26th January 2024. The minutes of this meeting can be found below. Also details of the Summix proposal are included below.

Country Market in Tidbury Green Village Hall – Every Saturday Morning

This fabulous Country Market has just moved from the scout hut in Wythall Park to Tidbury Green Village Hall, Dickens Heath Road, Solihull, West Midlands B90 1QW.
They are there every Saturday morning.
Country Markets is a non-profit organisation.  It used to be part of the Women’s Institute until it was split off under a reorganisation about 20 years ago.
 Although the participants in the market receive money for the sale of their produce no one makes a living out of it.  It is more of a “paying hobby”.  People participate because it is an enjoyable social event.  It is a similar story for the customers.  The Country Market is a meeting place for groups of friends where they can have a nice cup of coffee and a home-made cake together.
Anything which is cooked, grown or otherwise created at home can be sold at Country Markets.  Nothing is bought in for resale.  In this way they provide an outlet for the cottage industries of yesteryear.
As well as being a great place to visit, shop and have a cuppa and a chat, go, they are always in need more producers.
