* RESIDENTS fighting plans for another take-away in Dovehouse Parade will have to wait a bit longer for a decision.
Solihull Councils planning committee deferred the application for an Indian eaterie on the Warwick Road.
Over 600 residents had petitioned against the proposals, concerned about the number of food outlets already on the parade.
* A GARDEN-grabbing scheme in Balsall Common has been thrown out for a second time.
Neighbours had challenged plans to build three detached bungalows behind Kenilworth Road.
Last Wednesday (July 28), the planning committee dismissed the application.
Councillor David Bell (Con, Meriden) had criticised the scheme for being "much the same" as one rejected last August.
