About New Frankley
New Frankley in Birmingham Parish is a community in the south west corner of Birmingham bordering the Waseley Country Park and the Lickey Hills. It is a community of approximately 5,500 electors and some 3,500 dwellings.
The Estate was built in the mid seventies by Birmingham City Council to accommodate residents from other parts of Birmingham displaced by redevelopment.
The Estate originally straddled the border between Birmingham and Worcestershire with some properties in the area administered by Birmingham City Council and others in the area administered by Bromsgrove District Council and Worcestershire and Hereford County Council.
Since the Estate’s establishment, many of the former tenants have exercised their Right to Buy and currently the Estate is an even mix of Social Housing Provision and Owner Occupation.
In 1995, following a review by the Boundary Commission, the whole of Frankley community was unified as part of Birmingham within the Longbridge Ward of the Northfield Constituency.
As a means of improving the environment within community a number of residents, using the provisions of the Housing and Local Government Act 1997, petitioned the Government for a Parish Council which was eventually established in May 2000.
Unlike its rural cousins whose powers have been established over many years, New Frankley in Birmingham Parish Council is still finding its feet. However, it is hoped that the Localisation Programme currently being undertaken by the City Council will result in powers (and the corresponding budgets) being devolved down to the Parish Council and consequently, enabling the Parish Council to provide local services to the local community.
