CRT & Walsall MBC – Quicker in 2018- Please!

Frustrating Waiting for the Wednesfield Local Nature Reserve!

You know it is really frustrating waiting for the final sign offs for the Local Nature Reserve along the Wyrley and Essington Canal. The latest information I have from City of Wolverhampton Council is this.

Dated the 17th December – “I am still waiting for CRT and Walsall Council to agree the collaboration agreement.-Lead Planning Manager (Sub – Regional Strategy)”

All I can say is that come the New Year (2018) I do hope Walsall MBC and The Canal & River Trust really do start to deal with this issue with a little bit more urgency. It has been painfully slow these last 6 months.

After having waited for years, we are waiting for our Local Nature Reserve with huge anticipation!
