Landscaping works around the fenced play area will be starting next week from 3 April.  This will include some levelling works, shrub and wooden posts removal to further open up views, together with some footpath surfacing.

Works should take approximately two weeks.

 

 

UPDATE ON THE PLANNING APPLICATION FOR PHASE 11 (LAWLEY COMMON)

We have been informed by Telford & Wrekin Planning Office that the Developers have withdrawn their Reserved Matters application for the engineering work on Phase 11 (TWC/2018/0077).

There were numerous objections to the proposed works from residents, the Parish Council, TWC technical officers and the Coal Authority, mainly due to a perceived lack of information in the application about the impact on drainage and the mine shafts on site.

The Developers have been asked to provide more detailed information and to submit a Full Planning Application for further consideration.

They have also been informed that all work being carried out on Phase 11 should stop and that no more waste material from other sites should be spread on the site.

What would YOU want from a Community Facility?

What would YOU want from a Community Facility?

We are asking for your views about what, as a community, you would require from a Community Hub IF a local site could be secured.

This would be primarily be a community space rather than a leisure facility, as whilst it was planned that there would be future Community Facilities, such plan didn’t include leisure/sports facilities.

Currently there is limited Community use available at the local Academy, the existing Lawley Community Centre, and a few other providers, but these do not meet the needs of the growing development and we are keen to try and secure more but need to establish what it is that, YOU, the Community would want to see included & would use in the future.

Consequently we are inviting you to comment on our Facebook page or send an email to clerk@lawleyoverdale.org.uk with what you would like to have available in such a building.

Please also share the above information with other residents, so that they too may make their view known.

The closing date for comments to be received is Friday 13th April 2018

Thank you for your interest & participation!
