Love Ladywood

Last month, Digbeth Residents Association was invited to the Birmingham City Council House in order to participate in the annual Ladywood District Convention. Digbeth is part of Nechells Ward – an administrative zone determined by the Council – which is part of the wider Ladywood District, comprising Aston, Ladywood, and Soho Wards, as well as the Nechells Ward.

The convention started early on a Saturday morning, and was opened by Sir Albert Bore, Leader of the Council. Following some interesting discussion groups on issues affecting the district, including housing and employment, Sir Albert presented a number of awards to active citizens from across the area. The day ended with us breaking out into Ward groups to discuss specific issues affecting Nechells – namely litter, unused land, and policing.

If you, as a Digbeth resident or visitor, have any issues you would like to raise with the Council, please do use DRA as your liaison. We can be reached on
