    Birmingham City Council has said it will demolish all high rise flats which re-main in Brimingham

    High rise flats are still very much prominent in many areas including Newton, Aston, Lozzells, Handsworth and Northfield.

    The Council has has said that the high rise flats ruin the reputation of many areas in Birming-ham, having them labelled trampy, and vile.

    Birmingham City Council has being under close scrutiny for having pregnant women and having over crowding in the flats.

    As a result to this the Council have drawn up plans to demolish the flats and build build more Terrance houses in the areas where they high rise flats were located, to provide more comfortable and less over crowding in households.

    The Council has also seen a sharp rise in the complaints about over crowding in the current Terrance houses they provide.

    the demolition of the high rise flats in place by 2011.

    complete. The demolition of the high rise flats follow

    from the enormous amout of compliants from the councils residents.

    The council hope for the project to be started by October 2011 and for the reconstruction to be scheduled for the following October 2012.
