In September 2021 as part of our canvass of Highgate, the Workers Party – Birmingham surveyed residents in Studley Tower, some of whom had complained to our party of poor maintenance of their property by Birmingham City Council.
Our survey found:
Some residents we spoke to had issues of overcrowding, one man occupied his one bedroom flat with five children
Many residents we spoke to had issues with heating and ventilation, broken windows, broken boilers, poor heating systems
Other residents we spoke to had issues with vermin, with both rats and cockroaches reported as being present
On 20 September we raised these matters with Birmingham City Council.
Birmingham city council officers responded promptly.
To get these issues addressed we’ll be working with residents and the council to ensure the issues are sorted.
