THE Bromsgrove Society continues to monitor planning applications for the town and to make objections, suggestions and recommendations where appropriate, and has expressed concern about the extent of existing services and their capability of accepting any development proposals.

AS with the majority of Bromsgrove District Housing Trust sheltered housing tenants facing the total increase of £9.39 proposed to be introduced as an Enhanced Management Service charge, I am disgusted that once again the most vulnerable in society are being targeted.

I WAS very disappointed that the quite reasonable request from Bromsgrove Labour Group leader Luke Mallett that Bromsgrove District Council support his motion that a non-statutory public inquiry be held into the problems surrounding Marlbrook tip was rejected by the Tory Group.

THE letter from K Breillat, “Station needs a disabled lift”, last week, suggesting that Bromsgrove’s longawaited new train station would not include lifts to enable less able passengers access to the trains indicates some crossed lines in communications.
10:00am Monday 10th March 2014
I SEE Bromsgrove District Council, along with Worcestershire County Council, tell us that no provision will be made for the elderly and the disabled when they redevelop the railway station in Bromsgrove, namely no lift. Reason, no money?

LIKE Councillor Colella and Brian Lewis, I am fed up with the situation as described by your article (Fed-up Tories quit party, Advertiser, February 19). Like them I am a true blue – I have been all my life.

IF what we express in our opinions can be held to be an insight into our hearts and minds, it would seem fair to assess that R Manning’s nasty piece of invective (Your- View, February 19) indicates a narrow, bigoted, rather small mind, that is not capable of simple enquiry before holding forth.

REFFERING to the letter entitled “parking warning” from Keith Hodson, (Yourview, November 20) I also received a parking fine for £100 in September (reduced to £60 if paid within 14 days) for parking in the exact same spot at Bromsgrove Retail Park in Birmingham Road. I also have used this spot regularly for years.

READERS may remember the articles in the Advertiser early in the year concerning parking on the Bromsgrove retail park, off Birmingham Road opposite the Victoria Ground, and the one titled major u-turn after parking fines spark outrage.
