One of the biggest concerns Paulette hears from residents is about the impact of gambling on Erdington High Street.
That is why Paulette recently objected to a planning application for a betting shop on the High Street (here) to extend their opening hours as Paulette was concerned it would fuel crime and anti-social behaviour in our area. Thanks to the local campaign and the objection raised by Paulette Hamilton, the planning committee subsequently rejected the application.
This is a victory for our community and sends a clear message that we will not tolerate any activities that harm our High Street.
