“Dear Councillor,I wanted to reassure you that City of Wolverhampton Council’s Environmental Services arboricultural teams and grounds maintenance teams have been working hard to deal with a large number of fallen trees and broken branches caused by the high winds that have hit the city over the last two days.The priority remains dealing with fallen trees, large fallen branches, and any trees that are causing immediate danger to people and property – in particular trees and branches obstructing buildings, foot-ways and carriageways.Fallen trees and branches in parks and open spaces that are deemed safe will be dealt with as part of the ongoing clearance operations as and when resources become available.Kind regards,Steve Woodward (Head of Environmental Services).
If you live in Wednesfield North and you have a problem that you think your Councillors may be able to help you with? Then why not pop a long to see them?
We will all be there! –
Your Councillor Rita Potter, Councillor Mary Bateman, and Councillor Phil Bateman.
On Friday 21st September there will be a Councillors Advice Surgery – This time the venue is The Hub at Ashmore Park on Griffith Drive Ashmore Park.
Again the Surgery will be open from 6.00pm to 7.00pm .
I have been receiving complaints from residents about the unthoughtful parking being undertaken by some parents picking up and and setting down their children in the locality of this school.
Residents of Southwell Road have told me that they are fed up of the situation.
I have today contacted both the City Officials and the West Midlands Police because of the complaints and the developing situation.
My own message to parents is, ” Please be a little thoughtful if you do pick up your children by car, if it was you and some one obstructed your drive and access, you would be equally as furious!
I will be contacting West Midlands Police and the City Highway Officials about the current situation.”
Residents might also like to know that there is a Police Surgery taking place at The Hub at Ashmore Park. Where the police will speak with you about this problem and any other police related issue you may have. The Police Surgery takes place at 10.00am Thursday 20th September 2018
Redundant Wolmer Road Garage Site
Your Councillors have been informed of a survey being undertaken soon – which relates to Wolverhampton Homes and their proposals to develop under used and redundant Garage Sites for new build council housing across the City of Wolverhampton.
This is the case soon to be undertaken in the Garage site in Wolmer road that currently has a pathway linking with Kitchen Lane.
There is a legal check being undertaken which will be followed by a more detailed survey.
The survey is being designed to establish if this garage site is viable for development.The survey work will give the Wolverhampton Homes team information that will go towards the decision making.
Letters will be sent out by Wolverhampton Homes to neighbouring properties to advise them of the survey work.
Wednesfield North Councillors wanted to give you early indication of the process soon to be started.
I emphasise that the work is a survey of the site.
NO decision has yet been made about the outcome. That will follow the site survey results.
There has been a car abandoned in Millbank Street Ashmore Park Wednesfield.
I have reported the car to West Midlands Police. I have also reported it to the City Council. I will keep local residents informed of events when I have received a response from the Authorities.
I want to thank Local residents for bringing this issue to my attention. Hopefully the Authorities will take the matter up and respond quickly to dispose of it. Making the highway safe again,
In the early hours of the 12th September 2018 a residential burglary occurred at an address in the vicinity of Wood End Road/Linthouse Lane Wednesfield. Two vehicles were stolen in what is known as a ‘car key burglary’.
A few hours after this offence, officers from Wolverhampton’s Offender Management Team located and recovered two stolen vehicles a short distance away in Castle Bridge Gardens. One of which was from the burglary mentioned above. The other vehicle was stolen from the Heath Town area a few hours before also.
At the same time West Midlands Police Traffic Unit also located another stolen vehicle just off Mill Lane Wednesfield. This was stolen several day before from the Scotland’s Area of Wolverhampton.
In the past 7 days there has been 2 residential burglaries and 7 business burglaries within Wednesfield area – this includes Wednesfield North/South and Fallings Park.
Car Key burglaries most company occur in the early hours of the morning. If you happen to see something that doesn’t look right or may be suspicious please do not hesitate to contact police on 101 or 999 if you believe a crime is taking place.
The same advice goes for unusual vehicles that may have ‘appeared’ overnight in quite residential streets. Burglars who steal cars frequently leave these in a seemingly quite residential road for a few hours after they have been stolen to allow them to ‘cool down’ and see if the vehicles are being tracked. If you believe a vehicle is suspicious please do not hesitate to contact us.
Below is a host of information and steps to consider to reduce the chance of becoming a victim of burglary.

I hate Bully’s!
What kind of Free World Leader, and Neighbouring Country Bully’s a friend and allie by threatening to ‘Ruin Them’?.
Of course there is only one President in the Western World would wave that sort of threat isnt there?!
WASHINGTON— Returning to his bellicose trade rhetoric, U.S. President Donald Trump warned Friday that he would cause the “ruination” of Canada if he imposed tariffs on Canadian-made cars.
Trump issued the threat during another day of North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations that did not produce a deal between the U.S. and Canada. Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland continued to describe the talks as constructive but provided no details.
