    Survey: Jun 23, 2020
    1 question

    Fossil fuel investments are bad for the planet and bad for our future. They're also financially risky, leaving taxpayers to foot the bill.

    We want the pension fund to switch to greener alternatives that are better for local people, the economy and the planet.

    1 question

    Earlier in the year, I started looking into the pothole problem in Abbey Ward, but what other issues can I address for you? Do you have a faulty streetlamp on your road? Or is there a broken public bin? Or even just an area that needs cleaning up? Have your say and log your Abbey Ward concerns here.

    Since February 2020, I have plotted and reported seventy potholes in the roads and pavements of the Abbey ward, along with uneven paving and protruding roots. The council have started work fixing some of them.

    Here are the previously reported potholes, let me know if I've missed any.

    The Lily Hay development at the end of Preston Street was highly controversial. Now the planning application for the second phase has been submitted, but this decision will not go to planning committee. The decision will be delegated to a planning officer. I think this is wrong - the details need public scrutiny. If you agree, please email the following people, asking that the reserved matters for the Lily Hay development (ref 19/05564/REM) be decided by the planning committee:
    ian.kilby@shropshire.gov.uk (head of planning)
    kelvin.hall@shropshire.gov.uk (case officer)
    paul.wynn@shropshire.gov.uk (chair of planning committee)
    vince.hunt@shropshire.gov.uk (vice chair of planning committee)
    peter.nutting@shropshire.gov.uk (leader of the Council)

    Many thanks

    If you have children or grandchildren at school, you need to know something. Schools funding is being cut in real terms, and by 2020 the government will be spending £3bn less in schools than it does now. What does this mean for our children? Bigger classes, fewer teaching and support staff, less equipment. Less fun, less opportunity to excel, less support, lower achievement. Is this what we want for our kids?
