In the constituency

Local MP, Steve McCabe is preparing to take part in a daring tandem skydive for charity.

Steve will be making the 15,000ft jump at the end of April, luckily he’ll be securely attached to a professional. Steve is hoping to raise as much money as possible for Acorns Children's Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support. 

Steve McCabe MP said:

Steve McCabe MP, Birmingham Selly Oak, will continue his fight to protect family homes in Selly Oak despite a poor response from the government.

He has expressed his anger at the government’s behaviour and poor response to his Protection of Family Homes (Enforcement and Permitted Development) Bill. It failed to progress beyond Second Reading because of the behaviour of Tory MPs who have pushed it to the back of the queue.

Selly Oak MP, Steve McCabe joined staff, volunteers and service users from leading deafblind charity Sense for a mass walk through Selly Oak along the Birmingham and Worcester canal. The sensory walk was organised to raise awareness of TouchBase Pears, a major new community centre for the area that will open in the summer.

The pioneering new centre will combine specialist support for people with sensory impairments and complex needs, with services that will benefit the whole community.

Stirchley’s very own Kolkata Lounge has been nominated by Selly Oak MP, Steve McCabe in the annual MP’s Tiffin Cup competition.

Steve McCabe MP is encouraging his constituents who are currently on the Council’s housing waiting list to re-register before 19 April 2017 to avoid being taken off the register.

Birmingham City Council is changing the way it allocates social housing to make the system easier for people to understand and to make the best use of the existing housing stock. The Council have also said that the current system gives people false expectations because of open access to the housing register and makes it difficult for existing tenants to gain an offer of alternative accommodation.
