Telford & Wrekin Council is investing £350,000 in Lawley, as part of a series of investments across the borough totalling more than £16 million.
As one of the borough's largest new housing developments, the council is working to deliver these plans as part of a new Lawley Partnership Board, which also includes Bournville Village Trust, Lawley and Overdale Parish Council, West Mercia Police and Lawley Village Community Association.
The money will be used for initiatives across Lawley with the creation of a community-led and community backed neighbourhood action plan, and will also be used to unlock funding from other partners.
The Lawley Partnership Board has been formed to monitor the progress of the neighbourhood action plan, and is made up of members from the following organisations:
- Telford & Wrekin Council
- Bournville Village Trust
- Lawley and Overdale Parish Council
- West Mercia Police
- Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group
- Telford and Wrekin Interfaith Council
- Homes England
- Representative for the Developers
- Lawley Village Community Association.
The Lawley Partnership Board meet on a quarterly basis, and have already started looking at ways to reduce community concerns around road safety on West Centre Way and Lawley Drive, to improve outdoor sports facilities on Gresham Drive and develop the identity of Lawley.
