The Parish covers the area of Lawley & Overdale serving the local community of Lawley Village, Overdale, Lawley Bank, Dawley Bank, The Rock, Old Park, Newdale and everywhere in between and the War Memorial will serve all of these areas.
Various sites for the location of a Memorial have been investigated by the working group which include residents, Council members, Borough Councillors and representation from the Royal British Legion prior to going out to consultation – things that had to be taken into account were land ownership, accessibility and suitability of ground conditions. Two locations were decided upon to go out to public consultation – the location needs to be determined as the starting point to move this project forward.
The consultation is on social media but will also be conducted by volunteers outside Morrison’s over the weekend asking people for their preferred location, info/maps placed in local shops on Overdale, Dawley Bank and on community pages and by volunteers in the Old Park area of the Parish.
No decisions have been made on a preferred location hence this consultation.
We welcome any constructive comments from residents – the alternatives of Martingale Circle & the Village Green put forward by residents were all considered by the group prior to this consultation
We need as many residents as possible to take part in the consultation and thank you in advance for doing so.
