New Chair for Lawley Management Committee

BVT in Lawley Village would like to thank Benedict Croft who has recently stepped down as chair and committee member of Lawley Management Committee. Following changes in 2020, Benedict was the first Chair of the resident led committee and has worked with fellow committee members and BVT to ensure residents voices are clearly heard. This included introducing face to face appeals, so residents could attend and meet members of the committee and BVT to discuss their application.

Fellow committee member James Haldron has now been appointed as Chair. James has lived in Lawley Village for four years with his wife and children. James works in IT and now supports schools with their IT provision. In his spare time, he is also studying an IT and computing degree. In addition James was previously a school governor with a particular interest in helping build inclusive environments as through his own experience with a disabled child, he knows how important it is to break down barriers and enable them to reach their maximum potential.

James commented: “Firstly I would like to thank Benedict on behalf of the committee for everything he has done for Lawley. I look forward to carrying on in his footsteps and working with BVT in Lawley Village to create a community that residents are inspired and engaged to live in.”

The committee consists of 11 members, which are made up of: five directly elected Lawley residents, three nominated from Lawley Village Community Association (LVCA), two BVT executive team members and a parish councillor nominated by Lawley and Overdale Parish Council.

Later this year elections will take place and details will be provided on all our digital platforms. There will be drop-in sessions with committee members and BVT attending so residents can discuss any questions they may have.
