Sutton New Hall is one of the 40 electoral wards in Birmingham, England and is named after New Hall, a medieval manor house.

Sutton New Hall is one of the four wards that make up the Parliamentary Constituency and formal district of Sutton Coldfield. The ward lies to the south-east of Sutton Coldfield town centre and covers Walmley, Walmley Ash, Thimble End and Minworth. It covers an area of 19.68 square kilometres.

Population and housing[edit]

According to the 2001 Population Census there were 21,487 people living in 8,896 households in Sutton New Hall.

Most housing within the area is modern semi-detached and detached. Around Walmley the housing is pre-war build, though in areas towards Minworth, Thimble End and Falcon Lodge, it is more modern housing dating from the 1970s. New housing estates have been built in Thimble End and also on the former Warren House Farm and New Shipton Farm land, creating New Hall Manor Estate and a new addition to the New Hall Estate.

The ward has adopted a Ward Support Officer, with the current holder of the title being Roy Roberts.

Places of interest[edit]

At the end of Plants Brook, a local nature reserve has been created from reservoirs constructed by Birmingham City Council. New Hall Mill, one of Birmingham's only two existing water mills, has been refurbished back to working order and is open on specific days to the public.

Walmley Library and Community Hall are located within the ward and have recently been refurbished as part of the "Walmley Local Action Plan".
