We the undersigned oppose the new trial bus stops on Old Lode Lane, proposed by the Liberal Democrats, as they failed to conduct a proper consultation

The local Liberal Democrat Councillors have enforced two new trial bus stops on us as local residents, despite only two people requesting them, and the majority of local residents strongly objecting. If these are not objected to, they will be permanent features, which we do not want. There are already existing bus stops near the Olton Tavern (a short distance away), which are proper shelters with seating, and have a greater variety of bus services and timetables. The new bus stops increase traffic congestion, create noise (air brakes and engines pulling away) and anti-social behaviour around our properties, including littering in our front gardens. Please help the local residents oppose these bus stops. Thankyou.



  • John Bramham These proposals are poorly thought through, and are completely unnecessary. Elmdon Councillors (!) should confine themselves to promoting things that local people want, not what THEY think local people should have. I oppose ANY such changes to bus stops along OLL, apart from urging WMT to reinstate the bus shelter adjacent to Merevale Road.

  • Julian Knight As the Conservative party's MP candidate for Solihull , local resident and active local campaigner for better buses I am horrified at the lack of consultation and care taken of your views by your councilors. This is exactly the sort upon high out of touch decision making which gives politics a bad name. You have my support.

  • Cllr Peter Doyle As a Cllr in Solihull, it is imperative we listen to our residents... It's your council tax us cllrs approve the spend of. Why no local consultation?
    Wouldn't happen in my ward!!!
    Silly Lib Dems :)
