The cancellation of the 360 degree bus service by the West Midlands Combined Authority will make it harder for children to get to and from the Westwood Academy. That’s according to angry parents living in Eastern Green.
Councillors are demanding answers today after Coventry City Council seemed to confirm that negotiations are taking place to sell land at the Woodlands Academy site. The surprise announcement was made in a memo sent to councillors regarding a review of polling stations.
Concerned parents and councillors are calling on the council to take action on Hockley Lane before someone gets hurt. Every morning many parents and children walk to school on the road and they’re worried about the speed of approaching cars.
Conservative councillors have launched a petition to make sure that Coventry continues to be served by three express trains to London every hour. They’ve launched the campaign because a consultation on the future of the West Coast service rail franchise could put this level of service under threat.
Councillors representing Woodlands ward have raised concerns at the prospect of more new housing on greenbelt land in an area which has repeatedly suffered from heavy flooding. It was recently revealed that plans are afoot to build 200 new homes on Greenbelt land off Broad Lane that straddles the Coventry/ Solihull border.
Two local councillors have welcomed figures showing that unemployment has dropped to its lowest national rate since 2005, with 2.5 million more people across the United Kingdom back in work having the security of a regular pay packet than in 2010.
Greenbelt campaigners have reacted with fury after Coventry City Council told them they can't submit a petition calling for an extension to the consultation period because the decision's already been taken.
Coventry Conservatives are saddened to learn of the untimely death of Cllr Phil Townshend, the Deputy Leader of Coventry City Council. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues at this sad time.
