RESIDENTS ANGRY OVER COUNCIL BAN ON IMPROVING HOMES

Opposition from residents to a Birmingham City Council order banning residents of a 466-home Edwardian urban village from embellishing their homes with tarmac, plastic and block-paving, is reported in The Guardian (p2).

97% of residents of Bordesley estate are against the order, confirmed last month, which obliges residents to seek planning permission to carry out any work that will damage the Edwardian character of the estate.

Councillors claim that the character of the area will be destroyed if it is not protected. But some residents are upset that they cannot build extensions or install double glazing.
