Cllr Jayne Greenaway's latest update on Horsehay and Lightmoor

The issue of School places not being available has been raised by New Residents on Lightmoor. This issue will continue to be raised by us in Council.


I am continuing to work with TWC officers and residents to look at how the unadopted highway at Spring Village can be improved and the residents supported with this issue.


I was invited to attend the Friends of Horsehay Pool meeting, it was a very productive meeting, very well attended by people who want to drive forward objectives for the improvement of ecology and the environment for the enjoyment of all.


Planning application TWC/2018/0077 was received for enabling and engineering works on Phase 11 Lalwey. There were a great many issues relating to this application which I highlighted to planning officers. Flooding issues have impacted on residents of Horseshoe Paddock, Huntingdon Drive and Farriers Green for a number of years from the cross drains on this site. There were further problems with lack of detail which included Public Rights of Way crossing the site and access during the works. The site is surrounded by green corridors and protected trees, however the application did not included arbourcultural or ecology surveys. I have objected to the application and have alerted  resdients surrounding this site. I will be updating residents of the outcome of my disscussions with planning officers and T&W Flooding officers.We await further information.


A number of highways issues have been reported to me, including very heavy mud deposits on roads in Doseley and  speeding issues in Horsehay. Some cleaning of the mud has taken place and will be monitored, and I am awaiting responses from the highways team re the speeding issues.
