Lawley Phases 5, 9, 10 & 11 – Installation of marker pegs.


LVDG will carrying out some further works on the above sites which are in relation to additional Site Investigation works.

As of the 24th April, next week, we will be carrying out the placement of pegs to identify the positions of both rotary bore holes locations and settlement monitoring points . As you are aware the Lawley area historically has been used for various types of mining activates including opencast mining and although there has been Site Investigation works (SI) carried out in the past we need to undertake some further works so that we can complete the picture.

Therefore we will be setting up these pegs within the above phases initially excluding the areas that are let for horse grazing. Once these pegs are in and as some of them will be within wooded areas we will be contacting TWC Trees Officer so that we can walk these areas to seek his input/approval as we will need to make arrangements for some of these areas to be cleared of trees and ground cover scrub.

As for the areas that are currently let for grazing we will be looking to come back and work through these areas at the beginning of June. Once all of the pegs are in we will then be looking to undertake the additional SI works which will involve the use of a drilling rig.

Truth Project – Telford will be heard.

Truth Project ‘Telford will be heard’ – how we can help raise awareness

The Council has welcomed the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse’s decision last month to bring the Truth Project to Telford that will allow victims and survivors of child sexual abuse to have their voices and concerns heard.

The Truth Project, which is part of the Inquiry, gives victims and survivors of child sexual abuse the opportunity to share their experience of abuse with a trained facilitator in a confidential setting. They can share as much or as little information as they feel comfortable with and suggest measures that might protect children from sexual abuse in the future. There is more information at

The project is due in Telford in May and June and has begun contacting some council services seeking support.

The aim of the campaign is for people to get in touch with them, ideally online or by telephone 0800 917 1000 (weekdays 8am to 8pm, Saturday 10am to 12pm).

Once the contact has been made, then dates and times will be given to all those who would like to speak to someone.

Please share this important information

Lawley Phase 1A – Road Remedial Works W/C 16.4.18

We have received information from Persimmon:

“One of our contractors will be carrying out some road remedial works around the Persimmon plots/roads on Phase 1A.

The works should start on Monday 16th April and run for about a week and will consist of a number of small areas being worked on.

We will be undertaking a letter drop as well to keep residents notified.

Sorry for the short notice however an opening had come up in the contractors program and in the spirit of Lawley we wanted to keep the momentum going.”


Carpenter Centre, Overdale

We have been contacted by residents relating to the Carpenter Centre at Overdale and its usage for the community.

We would like to make it clear that we were given notice to leave the Carpenter Centre by TWC as at that time they planned to use it primarily to accommodate the Linden Centre which is now in situ and is the main user of the Centre’s facilities.

We have been in touch with TWC along with the Ward Councillors for Ketley & Overdale to try and establish more Community usage at the Centre. This work is ongoing.

We welcome ALL of our residents to contact us or to attend the public sessions at our meetings to discuss their issues/concerns or raise ideas for consideration that would benefit the local community.

The contact is or phone 01952 507865. Our meetings schedule is available on our website.
