We the undersigned residents and business owners are calling upon Councillor Waseem Zaffar, West Midlands Police and licensing to reject this application and reduce the opening hours of this business.

Villa Cross is a conservation area of Birmingham with historical importance to the UK. The area has been tarnished by previous and existing bars which encourage anti social behaviour and provide no parking for their customers.

Illegally parked cars are already causing issues by restricting access to pavements and obstructing residents driveways. Noise levels have increased and properties have been urinated on by drunk customers. Commercial waste generated by these types of businesses are often fly tipped or left in public view on the main road due to lack of access behind their own premises.

There have been a number of violent crimes which are the direct result of alcohol consumption and most notably several stabbings connected to similar businesses nearby.

It is already difficult to maintain social distancing when walking past existing bars and cafes on Villa Road. Granting this licence will only exacerbate the situation further and encourage more anti social behaviour.

This is a residential area with families, students and housing for vulnerable people. The premises will not be fit for it’s intended purpose and we are opposed to the alcohol application made by Flamingo Cafe and Restaurant.
