SILHILLIANS are being called on to have their say on what they would like to see during Birmingham’s Commonwealth Games next year.

With just 18 months to go Solihull Council is inviting residents, businesses, schools and organisations across the Borough to start sharing their ideas, priorities and expectations for the Games which will take place from July 28 to August 8.

The responses received from this survey will help inform the council’s planning and investment over 2021 and 2022 – particularly ensuring that the opportunities the Games creates are relevant and accessible to everyone.

Some of the world’s best athletes from across 71 nations will come together in a momentous celebration of sport, competition and community.

Solihull Council is one of the host authorities, with six events (Badminton, Weightlifting & Para Powerlifting, Boxing, Table Tennis and Netball) taking place at the NEC.

The Council is researching what activities and events might be delivered in association with the Commonwealth Games.

The council say a short survey will contribute to that research and inform the types of activities, events opportunities the Council can consider providing for the Borough.

The survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.

here are two versions, one specifically for children and young people, as well as one for all residents and stakeholders living and working in the Borough.

The survey will close at 12pm on February 17.
