Welcome to the Bournville Village Council website, a site to provide you with information about what’s happening within BVC.
The Bournville Village Council [BVC] has existed for more than 100 years since first formed in the days of George Cadbury when it existed solely to put on the Village Festivalwhich it still does every year on the last Saturday in June. Have a look at some of the old yearbooks for some fascinating historical information. It now helps to organise other events around Bournville – including the Bournville contribution to the Birmingham Jazz Festival and the turning on of the Christmas Tree lights in December.
The BVC, equally and importantly, is now also a Resident’s Association acting as both a go between with local authorities (whether that be the Bournville Village Trust or the City Council) to help resolve issues which are of importance to you as a resident. The Village Council represents more than 4,000 households from Raddlebarn Road in Selly Oak through to Church Road in Northfield. Should you not know the right, or the most appropriate, organisation to call on about your problems the Village Council will assist you with information and advice. We pledge to work for resident’s in the Bournville area. Check out the Constitution for more information
The BVC consists of 15 elected members and 5 co-opted members. Elected members serve for 3 years and then step down, but they may stand again for another 3 year term if they wish. Co-opted members serve for just one year at a time. The elected members are there to help keep Bournville special. See contact for list of current Committee members.
