Shenley is set within the Weoley Ward and the Northfield Constituency of Birmingham. It is part of a large mixed estate developed and managed in the post war period by Bournville Village Trust (BVT). Its population lies in an area extending from Northfield in the south west to Shenley Fields Road in the North, Middle Park Road in the east and Bristol Road South which runs through to Northfield.
Shenley Court Hall was developed as a replacement for the old Shenley Green Centre that was built in the 1960s and served the community by offering a range of clubs and activities. The new building was designed to carry on serving the local community well into the 21st century.
