The results of the final consultation on the Community Governance Review are in and they showed support for the extension of the Parish Council boundary to include the whole of Catherine-de-Barnes! As such, the Governance Committee at Solihull MBC met on the 24th September to approve the final proposals. The Committee made a recommendation to full Council to extend our Parish boundary to include the whole of Catherine-de-Barnes (through a Community Governance Reorganisation Order). The Full Council unanimously approved this recommendation at a meeting on the 9th October.
This means that the Parish boundary will extend to include the whole of Catherine-de-Barnes (Ward BH07 on the plan) on the 1st April 2019.
The Parish Council will be working hard to ensure that transition to include the additional area into the Parish goes smoothly. We look forward to welcoming our neighbours into the Parish.
