Lorely Burt and the Shirley Lib Dem team want to know what you think should be done with the former Powergen site in Shirley.

The site has been left derelict for almost 20 years, with a series of plans falling through.

New proposals for the site have recently been unveiled, which can be viewed at http://powergenshirley.co.uk/.

We would like to hear you views on the future of this 10 acre site. Please use the form below to submit your views and ideas.

    Hi Lorely Burt MP

    Powergen could be used as Sheltered Acommodation for the elderly of Solihull.

    Just think of the amount of one and two person apartments you could furnish on this site.

    Because its big enough you would have room for lifts and movable staircases throughout the building.

    The ground floor could be for staff and the rest turned into a mini-mall for the residents to shop in.

    Then with perhaps a gym, a subsidised restaurant, hairdressers and Doctors Surgery etc.

    Maybe a social club for residents and invited friends only. A room for the Police to visit.

    Everything the elderly require under one roof where they would be safe from today’s hostile environment.

    There would also be room outside for some attractive gardens and visitor parking.

    If thought out properly this could be a flagship for Solihull and would really put us on the map.

    Maybe something should be done soon before it becomes a total health hazard and falls or has to be

    pulled down. The only people who love it are pigeons.

    Best wishes

    We would like to see a mixture of different types of housing including affordable for young people and safe warden controlled for the elderly and infirm. No more shops, let’s fill the ones we have.
