Environmental Action with Labour in Wednesfield North.

Matters on my mind this morning is inevitably the City Council Elections on the 4th May 2023.
It is rapidly approaching.
One of the main issues that are rising to the top of the postbag, is the environment.
Its not just the case that all three Labour Councillors in Wednesfield North have been progressing opposition to keep our much loved Green Belt is South Staffordshire being ripped up over the past years.
Its also been the success we have had in delivering a Local Nature Reserve situated along the Wyrley and Essington Canal, kept and maintained properly. Both boaters and the general public love the canal,its walks, its nature, the wild fowl and the trees and wild flowers. We are very proud of our actions again over years. To get it to where it is now.
Where we are finding public distaste is the rise and rise of ugly graffiti tagging, on Public buildings and on Private infrastructure.
Its been raised with the Police by your Labour Councillors, and we have raised the matter with the City Council officials.
We do need the publics help to identify where these ugly tag marks are, and crucially who is behind them- and the tags must have a meaning? So what is the meaning? Anyone who can help?
We have also been involved in the past year with the improvements to the Parks, with more trees being planted by corporate investment. We are also very proud that there are proposals to improve the Ashmore Park that will be forthcoming. We have also encouraged the Police to extend their patrols on our Canals and in our Park’s, and across our Green Public Spaces.
Your Councillors arranged the environmental fencing in Coppice Farm to protect against vehicle intrusion onto the space, the placing of memorial benches and bins.
The environment is important to us. We hope it is important to you as well. Please remember in this Local City Council election on 4th May 2023, You have three Votes – Use them all for Labour Mary Bateman, Phil Bateman and Rita Potter!
