Birmingham City Council has said it will demolish all high rise flats which remain in Brimingham High rise flats are still very much prominent in many areas including Newton, Aston, Lozzells, Handsworth and Northfield. The Council has has said that the high rise flats ruin the reputation of many areas in Birmingham, having them labelled trampy, and vile. The high rise flats have been in Birmingham since the Council wanted to reduce the amount of Terrance housing they provided to families who needed it. Birmingham City Council has being under close scrutiny for having pregnant women and having over crowding in the flats. As a result to this the Council have drawn up plans to demolish the flats and build build more Terrance houses in the areas where they high rise flats were located,

to provide more comfortable and less over crowding in households. The Council has also seen a sharp rise in the complaints about over crowding in the current Terrance houses they provide. Ms Tailor who is single parent has said “ Its wrong how I have a 18 and a 13 year old sharing a bedroom and making matters worst they are not of the same sex. I am ashamed that I can not give the eldest her own room and space.” The Council has brought forward plans to have the demolition of the high rise flats in place by 2011. This will be followed by new houses being built for the current people living in high rise flats. The houses will be offered to those living in temporary accommodation to be the first to be offered a new property but in the same area where they were before. Birmigham City Council

have said that this project will take approximatley 1015 years to complete. The demolition of the high rise flats follow from the enormous amout of compliants from the councils residents. Many of the councils residents are furious about the lack of care and attention they get from their landowners Birmingham City Council has said it will spend £35 million on the demolition, customer care and rebuilding the new houses. The council hope for the project to be started by October 2011 and for the reconstruction to be scheduled for the following October 2012.
