Sutton Coldfield is an ancient town that was absorbed into Birmingham in 1974. It is now a mainly residential area and many people who live and work here spend the weekends in the surrounding countryside, venturing into Birmingham, or browsing in the town’s large shopping area.
In 2014 Birmingham began a large-scale five-year project to rejuvenate and improve the quality of its streets, including those in Sutton Coldfield. However, as this project has only just begun there still remains a lot of roads and pavements to be improved, therefore, it is important to take care when walking around the town to avoid any slips, trips or falls.
