Have Your Say on Proposed Changes to Bus Services in Solihull

Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) will be commencing consultation next week regarding a review of the financially supported bus services within the Solihull area. Many of the services are currently operated under the ‘Signature’ brand and have been in their current form for over 5 years. The contracts that are in place will be coming to an end in February 2019.

The consultation will be open from Monday 24 September, for a period of three weeks. TfWM are keen to ensure that residents and representatives of wards, groups and communities, have the opportunity to feed into this consultation and that they can capture as many views as possible from service users. As part of this TfWM will be holding a public exhibition in Solihull Town Centre (near to the former Maplins) on Wednesday 3 October from 9am until 3pm. They will also be conducting a number of on-bus and at-stop surveys over the coming weeks.

 

The public information for the consultation is attached, and the dedicated TfWM webpage, where people will be able to find more information and completed surveys,  can be accessed through: www.Networkwestmidlands.com/solihull

 

The best way for service users to provide their feedback about the proposals is through the consultation questionnaire. We encourage residents within Tidbury Green to complete the questionnaire, in order to help influence and inform the decisions regarding the network.

SMBC Brown Recycling Bins Update – 25th July 2018

SMBC Brown recycling bins update

 

 

You may be aware that due to a fault some of our brown recycling bins are splitting. If your brown bin has split we’ll deliver a replacement free of charge and collect your damaged bin. You can report a split brown bin here.

 

Due to a higher than expected demand for replacement brown bins, it is currently taking longer than 20 working days to deliver replacements. 

 

We will deliver your bin as soon as we can – please accept our apologies for this delay.

 

Whilst you wait for a replacement, any household recycling can be placed in an alternative container such as an old recycling box, plastic container or a hessian/jute bag. If you don’t have any of these, you can pick up five clear sacks from your nearest Solihull Connect walk in centre, your local library, or Bickenhill Waste and Recycling Centre (from Friday).
