Description

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.


Company description
Marston Green Burial Ground Millennium Wood, which is classified as a Nature Reserve Recreation Ground & Pavilion Garden of Memory The Chapel Garden The Pleck Allotments Amenity Land Red Phone Box at Bickenhill Vicar's Field at Bickenhill Marston Green Burial Ground is located on Bickenhill Road and is maintained by the Parish Council for the residents of the parish. The Burial Ground provides both burial and ashes plots. Millennium Wood, located on the junction of Bickenhill Road and Coleshill Heath Road, is classified as a Nature Reserve and to achieve this status, we worked with Solihull MBC and English Heritage. Although the land is owned by Solihull MBC, the Parish Council have a long term lease on this ancient site. Over the last few years we have planted wildflower areas and intend to increase these over the coming years. The Recreation Ground, located on Bickenhill Road, is a public park and, together with the Pavilion, is used by many of our residents.
It is the home to Marston Green Cricket Club and used by many local football teams. The Garden of Memory, located between Station Road and Elmdon Road, is maintained by the Parish Council, and the Memorial Clock was purchased by the residents of Marston Green as a tribute to former Parish Council Chairman, George Aston. The walls of the monument carry the names of residents who lost their lives in the two world wars. The site stands on a former gravel pit and was developed into the Garden of Memory in 1948. Further information can be found on our history page The Chapel Garden, located on Station Road, is on the site of the old chapel.
The garden was refurbished by the Parish Council and an opening ceremony was held in 2011. The Pleck, located at the junction of Coleshill Road and Bickenhill Road, is a small garden area with a bench and is maintained by the Parish Council. The word Pleck means a triangular piece of land but unfortunately not much more is known about the history of this garden. The Parish Coun
