    Local councillors are angered at yet another delay in the opening of the footpath between Harvington Road and Charford Road, after it was announced the path would not be open for school term time.

    Josh Robinson, Lib Dem County Councillor for Bromsgrove Central added, 'This footpath was meant to completed in 12 weeks, it was delayed once due to the council not wanting to put the bridge in place at the same time as Charford Road being closed but now we have another delay, doubling the time it was originally meant to be closed. This is unacceptable and gives me no faith that any other projects for on the A38 will be completed on time.'

    Bromsgrove must take seriously the risk of flooding to avoid even worse disruption for residents in the face of global warming, a working group of Bromsgrove District Council has warned.

    The warning came just before the historic UN climate change report issued this week which predicts increasingly extreme weather across the globe. Flooding, heatwaves and droughts are likely to become more common and more intense as a result of global warming, according to the International Panel on Climate Change. The effects will be felt everywhere including here in the UK.

    Responding to the Prime Minister's announcement on fully reopening the economy, Bromsgrove Lib Dems have issued a plea not to forget about excluded businesses. Hundreds of Bromsgrove businesses have been unable to access support, despite the severe impact on trading over the last 16 months.

    Bromsgrove District Council has handed out £33 million in business support grants since the beginning of the pandemic, and yet since November 2020, over 400 businesses in the district have been rejected from accessing support. Now the Lib Dem Group are calling for greater scrutiny of the reasons why, and a clearer appeals process for those who have missed out.
