Wednesfield North Round -Up!

This morning I thought that I would take a number of items that we are working on behind the scenes and give information on.

  • True Briton Public House – The fences are down and this gives the  PH the appearance of being a mess. We have been receiving complaints from a local resident. There is continued  information being sought from The City Councils Chief Planner.

This is not an issue which  is not being worked on, but it is only possible to act if it in some ways the inaction breaks the law. Unless of course the PH owners do the right thing and replace the fences and tidy up the site as just good business practice.


The Green Public Open Space on Kitchen Lane –  your Councillors have tried to get the hedge on the side of the road trimmed back on road safety grounds, on the stretch running into Essington.

  • Dumped Sofa – Kitchen Lane this has been reported and I am hoping that it will soon be removed. Other residents indicate that the Sofa is the result of local residents dumping it?

Please if you have any additional information on who dumps items like this, you can phone Crime stoppers and leave the information anonymously.

There have been one or two issues relating to crime here in Wednesfield North- They are not issues that I can publicise. But there is some on going investigation by the Police on issues that are causing concern locally.

I persevered following one residents complaint and eventually the Police called and spoke with him this week. It is a disgrace that like the Local Authority, the Government has been cutting down on Police resources. Crime is one of the big concerns here in Wednesfield North.
