You've said it yourself..

?We cannot afford ever growing Council Tax Bills!?

AGREED! - It?s time to scrap the Council Tax and replace it with a fair and affordable system of Local Income Tax. We want first rate services AND real value for money and the answer has to lie in greater efficiency. We cannot go on losing half a million pounds a year in Wyre Forest simply because Council offices are spread all over the place. This must be sorted and fast!


?The Police are never around when you need them.?

AGREED! - We?re fighting flat out for a safer town with more Police on ?the beat? - and a LOCAL Police force NOT regional Police Forces!


?We need Hospital services HERE, in Kidderminster.?

AGREED! - We demand a return of key services to Kidderminster Hospital and no more downgrading under any circumstances!


?Our roads and public transport are a total disgrace.?

AGREED! - Our aim is frequent and reliable Public Transport and real action to improve roads, pavements, potholes, parking and traffic flow!


?Which schools will our children actually go to?!?

AGREED! - The so called Wyre Forest Schools Review has been a total mess. Children MUST be able to get into the nearest and most convenient local schools IF that is what parents want! We want clear guarantees on local school places for all and we want that now!


?We need houses that people can actually afford.?

AGREED! - We desperately need good quality affordable housing, better employment opportunities and first rate shopping facilities locally!


?The litter and dog mess are disgusting. It needs sorting.?

AGREED! - We?re campaigning for cleaner streets, better maintained parks, play areas and open spaces, protected Greenbelt and proper, sustainable recycling!


?There simply isn?t enough to do around here.?

AGREED! - We are fighting for a full scale cinema, arts centre and a wide range of sports, leisure and cultural facilities and opportunities for local people!


?They just don?t care about what people need.?

AGREED! - We are determined to get a fair deal with first rate services in a caring community for the old, young, families, disabled and disadvantaged ? for everyone!

Our Pledge!

- We want a Council that really takes YOUR views onboard BEFORE decisions are taken.

- We want a Council that cares and knows how to turn caring into action and Councillors who stay in touch all the year round!

MAD PLAN TO STOP CARS TURNING FROM BIRMINGHAM ROAD ONTO CHESTER ROAD

Local Liberal Councillors have obtained a secret letter from Government Highways Agency Consultants saying that they want to...

  • "Prohibit the right and left turns from the A456 to the A449"

As Tim explains "Simply nobody would be allowed to turn left or right in either direction off Birmingham Road and onto Chester Road North at Land Oak."

THIS WOULD LEAD TO TOTAL CHAOS!

"This would cause enormous confusion and diversions for motorists and absolute havoc on neighbouring residential roads which would be turned ? at a stroke ? into heavily overloaded and congested 'rat runs'! Can you just imagine what the traffic congestion on Hurcott Road would be like!?


THE NEW FREE CONCESSIONARY FARES SCHEME! HOW IT WORKS?

School catchment area review update

Formal Public Consultation on future School Catchment areas has now started and runs till April 4th. Locally?

  • St Marys Primary School Catchment Area will be exactly the same as the existing First School and will therefore include the Sladen side of Hurcott Road. St. Mary?s will of course feed Wolverley High School and NOT King Charles I High School.

  • 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


Highways chaos

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!


Pallets Again!!!

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!

Imperial Avenue?

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.


Broadwaters PACT?

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,


Congratulations?

...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.


Hurcott Village?

We are asking the Highways Partnership to look at ways of reducing speed through the village.
