RESIDENT CONSULTATION ON DESIGN GUIDE

  • Covid-19 (Coronovirus) Update


    As a result of the current COVID19 crisis, we are proposing the following measures to manage our affairs electronically:

    Routine Meetings
    Currently, the association meets on the first Saturday of each month at Lawley Bank Court on Martingale Way. Given the vulnerable nature of the residents, the scheduled monthly meetings for at least the next 3 months will be held digitally. These meetings are scheduled for:

    May 2nd at 9:30am
    June 6th at 9:30am

    Currently we are using WhatsApp and Microsoft Teams for digital meetings. If you wish to participate in any of these digital meetings, please can you let us know by emailing us at the following address:

    secretary@lawleyvillage.org

    In the email, please provide your full name, address including postcode and email address. If you also wish to participate in our WhatsApp discussions, please add your phone number to the email address and ensure you have WhatsApp downloaded on your phone.

    To participate, you must be a member of the LVCA. It is free to join the LVCA for any person over the age of 16 living in a BVT charge-paying household. To register to join the LVCA click the link below:

    Our priority over the coming months will be to work together with everyone in the community to help each other through the crisis. In the meantime, we will do what we can to continue our work in building the new Stewardship Scheme and work with BVT and other key stakeholders to help the community.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at chair@lawleyvillage.org

    Chair, LVCA
  • The meetings of the LVCA usually take place on the first Saturday of every month from 9:30am to 11:30am. They typically take place at Lawley Bank Court, (Opposite Lawley Medical Practice), but please check before leaving, as the venue can sometimes change.

    The meetings for 2020 are as follows

    January 11th - 9am to 11am
    February 1st
    March 7th
    April 4th
    May 2nd
    June 6th
    July 4th
    August 1st
    September 5th
    October 3rd
    November 7th
    December 5th

    All are welcome to attend - please email secretary@lvca.co.uk to register your attendance
  • Many members have asked that we post a map showing who is responsible for what. We have been working hard to try and get definitive maps, but this is a complex issue. BVT are working on an interactive geo map, which we hope will bring more clarity, but it is likely to take some time before this is is ready. In the meantime, we are posting a map of Lawley which has been given to the LVCA by the developers. It is not an official map and not endorsed by any other agency, such as BVT, Parish Council or TWC, and so should be used with caution. However, it will give residents an indication of what the developers are using to determine who is responsible for what, or who is planned to be responsible. The maps will always be slightly out of date. This latest map needs updating with the recent courtyard transfers but the highways and TWC land is correct as far as we know. The next update will be at the end of Sept.

As many of you know, we are in the process of revamping the design guide. It is currently vague on some areas and we think residents need more information about what they can or cannot do under the current guide. I have started to post discussion on this thread about the issues, but we are planning to have a community meeting. Can people let us know when would be a good time to meet. It will cover issues such as satellite dishes, bins, parking spaces, windows, doors, extensions, garden decking, fencing, for sale signs, etc.

We are also seeking residents who feel strongly about this to come and join a working group. It will be able to be done online and through meetings and don't worry if you can only attend intermittantly. Our aim is to be able to get as much feedback as possible.

If you have ever complained about any of these things.... now is the time to feed in your feedback.

As many of you will know, the residents group have been working on a revised Design Guide setting out the rules for changes to property, etc. We now have a version will will go before the Lawley Village Management Committee on 20th June for approval. If you have any concerns or comments regarding this proposal, please can you let us know by June 11th, so we can discuss them before the final vote.

Thanks

Jim Weir

All seems fine and appropriate to me, except I dont agree with having to seek approval for a burglar alarm. Where matters of security are concerned, it should be a given that it is permitted. The whole point of an alarm is that it is visible and therefore goes against the principles of the design guide anyway.

No mention of the charges associated with the new planning portal - £18 just because I want to lay a few more slabs seems a bit excessive in my opinion.

Hi Jim,

I have just spoken to Shannon @BVT and she advised there is no charge for Lawley residents.
