Good example set by Solihill Council; Get in touch - tell us what you think Email: letters@birminghammail.co.uk Twitter: @birminghammail Facebook: facebook.com/birminghammail Post: Birmingham Mail, 60 Church Street, Birmingham B3 2DJ.

BIRMINGHAM City Council should take a lesson from Solihull Council who have saved Solihull's most historic building (Birmingham Mail, May 8), Tudor Grange House, which was formerly the family home of Sir Alfred Bird of Bird's custard fame.

Birmingham council appears to have a policy of 'if it is old let's demolish it'. It was the same with the oldest tree in Birmingham having been cut down.

The Grade II-listed building in Blossomfield Road is being turned into a 64-bed care home and 44 assisted living units. The fact that this historic building is being turned into a care home is irrelevant. The key is the building will have an extended life and will hopefully be preserved.

It is one of the finest houses in Solihull and a testament to the past and to my mind it speaks volumes of that style of architecture. Mike Butler, Wylde Green
