Lawley and Overdale Parish Council has been advised by the Lawley Village Developer Group (LVDG) that shallow mine working treatments are due to begin on the Lawley Phase 11 development. The work is to commence on 6 September, and will take around 23 weeks to complete.
The works will involve filling shallow mine shafts to stabilise the ground for development. This will involve daily material movements to and from the site for the duration of the 23 weeks.
“Concurrently, there will also be lorries moving some materials from phases 5, 9 and 10 to phase 11 for three weeks beginning 6th September”, the LVDG says.

As part of our commitment to keeping you updated on our work at the Lawley Village development, I am writing to inform you that we will soon be starting shallow mine working treatments at Lawley Village phase 11.
These enabling works involve filling shallow mine shafts that have been identified on the land, in order to stabilise the ground for development works to begin. The shallow mine working treatments will begin on 6th September 2021 and we expect the works to take around 23 weeks to complete. Daily material deliveries to and from Lawley Village phase 11 are expected throughout this operation.
Concurrently, there will also be lorries moving some materials from phases 5, 9 and 10 to phase 11 for three weeks beginning 6th September. On behalf of the consortium group, I would like to sincerely apologise for any inconvenience that these works may cause, and assure you that we are taking appropriate steps to keep disruption to the local community to an absolute minimum.
These enabling works were approved as part of the outline planning permission for the Lawley Village development by Telford and Wrekin Council in October 2005. The approved plans can be viewed on Telford and Wrekin Council’s online planning portal. Should you wish to speak to anyone about these works, you can contact our on-site contractors, McAulliffe, on 01902 354400. McAuliffe will be our principal contractor undertaking the work on site for the next two months. Thereafter, M&J Drilling will take over for the rest of the enabling works programme at Lawley Village phase 11.
