The Selly Oak local council ward is one of the 40 electoral wards for the City of Birmingham, England. It is also one of the four wards that make up the local council constituency of Selly Oak, the other three being the wards of Billesley, Bournville and Brandwood.

Description[edit]

The Selly Oak ward covers an area of south Birmingham, and includes not only the suburb of Selly Oak but also the adjoining districts of Bournbrook, Selly Park and Ten Acres, together with a small part of the Stirchley area.

Demographics (from the census of 2001)[edit]

The 2001 Population Census recorded that 25,792 people were living in the Selly Oak ward, with a population density of 4,236 people per km² compared with 3,649 people per km² for Birmingham. The ward has a below-average percentage of ethnic minorities, with only 15.9% of the population consisting of ethnic minorities compared with 29.6% for Birmingham in general.

History[edit]

The ward came into existence in 1911 when the boundaries of the City of Birmingham were extended as a result of the Greater Birmingham Act, and when the number of electoral wards in the City was extended from 18 to 30. At that stage three councillors were elected for the Ward, whereas in subsequent years there have been single elections. The area had previously been part of the Parish of Northfield, and originally in north Worcestershire. It was created by the union of two former electoral wards of the King's Norton and Northfield urban district, namely the Selly Oak (East) Ward, covering the districts of Bournbrook, Selly Park and Ten Acres, and the Selly Oak (West) Ward, covering Selly Oak itself and part of the district of Bournville).

Parliamentary representation[edit]

Under the Representation of the People Act 1918 the wards of Selly Oak and Northfield, together with that "part of King's Norton Ward which is not included in the Moseley Division" were to form the Parliamentary constituency of King's Norton.[1] Selly Oak ward remained within the King's Norton constituency until boundary alterations provided for in the 1948 Representation of the People Act placed it, and the Northfield ward, in the newly constituted Parliamentary constituency of Northfield in 1950.[2] Further boundary changes led to the creation of a distinct Selly Oak Parliamentary constituency in 1955, in which the ward of Selly Oak has since remained.

Politics[edit]

In 2012 the ward was served by three councillors on Birmingham City Council: David Radcliffe, of the Liberal Democrats, and Brigid Jones and Karen McCarthy of the Labour Party. Brigid Jones is also Birmingham City Council's Cabinet Member for Children and Family Services. The Ward has also adopted a Ward Support Officer, the current holder of the post being Marcia Greenwood.
