Can we keep our gardens?

A new article in the ‘Balsall Heathan magazine’ this month asks if we can keep our gardens instead of slabbing them over.
Gardens keep the air cool and moist and they slow down the flow of rain after storms. If we add too much to the hard surfaces around our homes, drains will flood and cars and homes become too hot. We may get another tornado. The street also looks really boring. Anyway you are supposed to have planning permsion from Birmingham City Council for more than 5 square meters of hard surface.
For more details see the new Information Sheet which you can request from
