Prime Minister & Sec of State – Urged to Keep Wednesfield In!

I have written to the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State regarding the cutting of Wednesfield from the Government’s new Towns Fund and the £25m of monies that is on offer. Its a travesty as it stands now. I am hoping even at this stage, that the Government will find away to include our great community of Wednesfield in to the bid.

I have explained how important it is to have Wednesfield in – not out!

A total of 100 places – including 45 places across the Northern Powerhouse and 30 places in the Midlands Engine – will be the pioneers of new Town Deals building on the Prime Minister’s announcement in July of an additional £1.325 billion to support towns as part of a renewed vision to level up every part of our country, which took the total value of the Towns Fund to £3.6 billion.”

It would be a travesty if Wednesfield remained out of the vision that the Prime Minister had when he talked about leveling up “every part of our country” . At the moment it appears our great community, our ancient Village of Wednesfield is out! If we are to be treated in this way we shouldn’t just not complain!I intend to do all that I can to get thiis foul decision reversed. Please join me get your voice heard too!
