St. Oswald’s Primary will have exactly the same catchment area as the existing First School and will feed Wolverley CE High.
St. George’s Primary will include all the existing First School catchment area plus most of the old Lea Street catchment area and will feed King Charles I High School.
It is vitally important that you make your views known. The County Council are holding a “drop in” session at Kidderminster Library between 2 pm and 8 pm 22nd March.
If you have any queries contact County Councillor Fran Oborski on 823911
The Tory County Council intend to close the local Highways Partnership Units and run it all from County Hall where it will be more remote and more out of touch. We believe this is bound to mean an even worse service locally on highway repairs.
Health! Primary Care Trust! As Tories lose the plot!
At the March District Council members through out a wishy-washy Tory motion which effectively said well we’d like to keep a Wyre Forest Primary Care Trust but, oh dear, we’ll put up with a whole of Worcestershire one if we have to.
Rest of Council stand firm
Instead Liberal, Health Concern, Labour, Lib-Dem and Independent Councillors voted to support a move proposed by Health Concern and seconded by Liberal Group Leader Mike Oborski that instead the Council should stand firm and FIGHT to keep a LOCAL Wyre Forest Primary Care Trust! We want local decisions on local issues—affecting local people—to be taken LOCALLY by LOCAL people!
£520,000 of YOUR money down the drain every year!
That is the official figure for how much money Wyre Forest is wasting every year by being spread out over lots of offices and buildings! This has got to stop! We must get Wyre Forest into a single site HQ as soon as possible and use that £520,000 every year to provide services and hold down Council Tax increases!
The Council is STILL waiting for a detailed Planning application and traffic assessment for the pallett storage operation in Stoney Lane. Local residents and Councillors are totally fed up and furious at the mess, fire hazard and nuisance!
As we went to press the WFDC Development Control Committee look set to refuse planning permission for 8 properties at the Imperial Avenue / Windy Ridge site. Planners don’t like the long narrow drive.
Broad Street traffic…
The Highways Partnership are drawing up detailed plans for a one way route for HGVs who have to drive down Churchfields and Clensmore to get to Stoney Lane and then back up Broad Street. Extra parking bays will be laid out on Broad Street.
Nice to see the Police launch the Broadwaters PACT (Police & Communities Together) but we need to pull in people from the WHOLE of the area,
...to the Police on recent drugs raids across the area. Keep up the good work!
Sion Hill School…
We are pushing to find out what will happen to the Sion Hill School when the schools reorganisation comes in as it will not all be needed for educational purposes.
Speed on Stourbridge Rd…
We are pushing for a reduction from 40 to 30 mph on Stourbridge Road going out of town from Broadwaters to Park Gate.
We are asking the Highways Partnership to look at ways of reducing speed through the village.
