    Dear All

    Road safety is a major concern in most of Worthen with Shelve and Chirbury with Brompton Parishes especially as there have been 2 deaths on the B4386 since July.

    The Police Commissioner has just launched a road safety Strategy and would like people to take part in the consultation around the document attached. See the link in his office email below.

    Radio Shropshire came to visit the land slip on the A490 (Chirbury to Churchstoke road)today (21st February. The reporter,Ian Perry, said the drop gave him vertigo! However, the carriageway is well sectioned off and safe. I am pressing for the Council to get the Government's 'Bellwin' emergency funding to pay for this major work as soon as possible. This road is used heavily all year but even more so in the summer. More on Radio

    There has been a major land slippage along the road where it borders Marrington Dingle. Trees and the verge have disappeared. This will need significant work using gabions and concrete to make the carriageway safe. It could take a while for the Council to find the money!!! Years of traffic lights here will not be acceptable. I will be raising this next week with senior officers

    This photo is of the damage to a barrier in Black Marsh Wood, Hemford. Does anyone know how this happened or who might have done it? This is a sensitive area for wildlife and the barriers and signs are frequently damaged. The Forestry Commission barrier and signage are there because this is NOT a byway open to all traffic. It has a prohibition on it.

    Heather's Report for February 2020

    Dear All,

    Consultants.

    Shropshire Council paying £1,000 a day for a consultant on potholes when they are asking relatives to top up care fees of up to £150 per week for elderly relatives is quite frankly immoral. If the Council had planned the redundancies better (which they have also spent millions on) then we may have the expertise in house to make their contractors, Kier, do their job and fill potholes properly.
