Welcome to the Parish website
The Parish comprises the villages of Bickenhill and Marston Green and whilst they both retain a village atmosphere, they are intersected by much major development. From the A45, known locally as the Coventry Road, and on the Marston Green side of the Parish, we have Birmingham International Airport; the National Exhibition Centre; the National Motorcycle Museum and many large and small business parks.
The Parish Council serves around 8,000 residents and the purpose of this site is to inform the villagers of the work of the Parish Council.
Our aim is to encourage involvement by the people it serves and thereby to create local democracy.
Parish Councils are at the grass-roots of local government and although they have a limited number of statutory duties, they do have wide powers should they decide to use them.
Our intention is for this website to provide a full range of information to benefit all members of the community, and we welcome your news and views.
