Bonfire at Risk?

Dear Local Residents of Whitehouse Crescent Knock Road and Parker Road – There is every chance that the Bonfire now erected on Whitehouse Crescent will be torn down and taken away.

With Bonfire night quickly approaching I understand from City Officials that the Council has yet to receive any contact from a member of the community who wishes to take ownership of the event.

This very much puts the event at risk, and the Council may have no choice but to remove the wood piled high on Nocke Road/Whitehouse Crescent.

I am making really a last-ditch appeal for neighbours/ residents to come forward and take some responsibility for the event

Failing this, and with less than 2 weeks until the event, the City Council will have no options but to get rid of the bonfire, under health and safety grounds.

If you want to take on this responsibility/ You will need to contact James Noot the compliance Officer -Environmental Crime on tel 01902 554321. Or by email on James.Noot2@wolverhampton.Gov.UK

Finally If you have a view on this issue – Please let me know via my Facebook Page or by email on Should it go ahead or shouldn’t it?
