I’ve just had notice of the latest scheduled road repairs across the ward. Over the next few weeks Amey, the Council’s roadworks contractor, will be carrying out the following works:
Week ending 29 June
Carriageway resurfacing, Tile Cross Road.
Week ending 7 July
Carriageway resurfacing outside numbers 1 – 75 Wychbold Crescent
Concrete joint repairs outside numbers 77 – 173 Wychbold Crescent
Carriageway resurfacing, Lea Ford Road
Carriageway resurfacing, Lea Village (from Kitts Green Road to Lea Ford Road)
Week ending 13 July
Carriageway resurfacing, Nearmoor Road
Carriageway resurfacing, Kitsland Road
All works will take up to five days to complete. Amey have written out to all residents affected to confirm the details, but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I’m delighted to confirm that a locally based project to celebrate the history of Lea Village has won funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Re-awakening Lea Village will bring together village residents old and new in a series of activities that will chronicle the long history of the area and also look to the future of this thriving neighbourhood. I’ve been working with the steering group, which is made up of residents, creative film makers Reel Access and other local agencies, to help shape the project. I can tell you that it promises to be a really exciting venture.
The project will be officially launched with an event on Friday 10 August between 2pm and 5pm. The team will be announcing more details shortly, but in the meantime, please take a trip to the Lea Village website to find out more about the area’s 700 year history. You can also keep up to date with the latest news by following the Lea Village page on Facebook here.
Councillors Marje Bridle, Ian Ward and I will be holding our next public meeting on Monday 18 June at The Shard in All Saints Square, starting at 7pm.
It’s a chance for local residents to come and have their say about local issues and to find out more about the latest developments affecting our community.
All Shard End Ward residents are welcome, so I hope to see you there!
