Lawley Village Fresh Start Conference

  • The LVCA has been in discussions with BVT regarding the future shape of the Stewardship scheme. We are aware of the high levels of discontent amongst some residents with the scheme and that some would like to see the scheme scrapped. Realistically, we don't think there is a legal route to achieve this. However, we have a meeting, with an Independent Facilitator on the 20th October to discuss the future shape of the scheme. We would like to gauge the sentiments of the residents about the possible options. Please click here to give use your vote!

BVT has been appointed to deliver a stewardship service within Lawley Village. There is frustration between parties (residents, BVT staff, Trustees, local politicians etc) around the delivery of the services within Lawley and how this interacts with the ongoing development.

There are a wide range of opinions about the reasons for this multifaceted frustration but there is not an agreed view on the best way forward.

BVT has suggested that a 'fresh start' conference between BVT colleagues and community representatives would be helpful to seek a way forward.

The conference will be an open discussion to hear everyone's frustrations and concerns, build a consensus about what a great Lawley Village looks like in 2028, identify how the Stewardship Service works, examine ways to achieve community accountability and identify the wider strategic challenges in Lawley and how BVT and the Lawley community can work together to tackle this.

Peter Richmond (Chief Executive of BVT) and Jim Weir (Chair of the Lawley Village Community Association) have shared options for an independent facilitator for this event. Yvonne Davies has been selected.

The event will need to take place at the weekend to ensure strong representation from the local community.

Please can you pick your preferred date in the user poll (above) so that we can decide which day better suits the majority of those wishing to attend.
