Unnecessary Obstruction Issues, including the following:
Parking on yellow or white zig-zags
Parking within 10 metres of the junction
Obstructing a pedestrian dropped kerb
Stopping a vehicle from accessing the highway
To report click here
Reports must include a clear image of the vehicle committing the offence, including front and rear VRM plates, time, date and location.
Obstructions are NOT:
Parking with wheels on the pavement (an obstruction is only ticketable if it is enough to stop a wheelchair or double buggy from getting past). Parking on the pavement is not an offence outside of London
Parking in front of a driveway that has no vehicle on it, even if there is a dropped kerb
Parking in front of a driveway that has no vehicle on it, because the vehicle is in the garage (drivers need to reasonably suspect that they are stopping a vehicle from entering the highway; this is not the case if the vehicle is out of sight)
Parking in front of a driveway if there are two exits, and only one is blocked this means there is still a means of the vehicle on the driveway from entering the highway.
Whilst these are examples of inconsiderate parking, they are not illegal, therefore the Police have no powers to issue tickets.
Police are also unable to issue tickets for parking on single or double yellow lines – these fall into the jurisdiction of Birmingham City Council.

Debt advice centre for South Birmingham
Christians Against Poverty (CAP) has opened a debt centre in South Birmingham covering postcodes B29, B30, B31, B14 and B38.
CAP offers a uniquely in-depth, caring service to people with spiralling personal debt regardless of their age, gender, faith or background. Every client is visited in their own home, the charity does all the negotiating with creditors, and local volunteers offer support to each person face-to-face until the day they are debt free.
Centre Manager Judy Ward writes: "The Church has always been about offering hope and we're really pleased to be able to give more people a tried-and-tested route out of debt alongside other great free debt agencies in the area. There is a lot in the Bible about looking after the poorest. In our society, a lot of poverty is debt-related so six churches have joined together to open a CAP centre to help get people back on track. These churches are Christ Church (Selly Park), Selly Park Baptist Church, Stirchley Community Church, Selly Oak Elim, St Stephen's (Selly Park) and Christian Life Centre (Selly Oak)."

Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)
A campaign to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation (CSE) launched in January 2015.
The regional See Me, Hear Me campaign features on buses travelling across the West Midlands as well as on radio to raise the profile of this abuse crime and help keep children safe.
Featuring the message 'Memories last a lifetime... Everyone has memories of their first love, but for some they won't be happy ones', it aims to highlight the horrific crime and its lifelong impact on victims.
People are directed to the campaign website www.seeme-hearme.org.uk for information on how to spot the warning signs of CSE and what to do if you are concerned about a child or young person. The site also features educational films to raise awareness of CSE, along with campaign posters for individuals and organisations to download and display.
The campaign was launched in June by Dudley, Wolverhampton, Sandwell, Walsall, Coventry, Birmingham and Solihull Councils, along with West Midlands Police and other partners, to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation.
CSE is a crime that can affect any child, anytime, regardless of their social or ethnic background. It is child abuse and involves perpetrators grooming their victims in various ways, such as in person, via mobiles or online, to gain their trust before emotionally and sexually abusing them.
