Cllr James Butler started this petition to Transport for West Midlands

Transport for West Midlands are to change the A7 and A8 bus routings meaning the services no longer operate through the Cheswick Green village. The revised routing is straight down Creynolds Lane, omitting Cheswick Way.
The loss of these services in the village centre means that people with limited mobility, the elderly and young will now have to walk some considerable distance to Creynolds Lane.
The decision also means that users will have to wait next to a grass verge on a nominally 40mph road in a partially lit area – this is extremely unsafe and totally inappropriate.
The use of public transport rather than cars is also crucial in our environmental plan, the distancing and restriction of access to these services does not support this important issue.
We the undersigned call upon Transport for West Midlands to revert to the original village routings in order to provide a safe and accessible service for the residents of Cheswick Green’
