Chance to raise local issues

The latest Safer Stronger Community Group meeting for Frampton Cotterell, Westerleigh, Coalpit Heath, Iron Acton and the edge of Yate will take place at 7.30pm tomorrow, Wednesday 23rd June, in St Saviours Church Hall. This is your chance to have your say on how we can make our communities safer and stronger.

One issue may be the light switch-off trial in the lane between Wayleaze and Alexander Road in Coalpit Heath (left). This was started in response to vandalism and other anti-social behaviour carried out be people hanging around under the light in the lane. In the past when the light has been broken, the issues have stopped because people don't like hanging around in the dark. It appears it may indeed have reduced the problems for people whose properties back on to the middle of the lane, but unfortunately there has been an incident closer to the Wayleaze end, lit by a different street light. This has been a long-running issue and we would very much like your views on tackling it.

There will also be a chance to find out more about the Council's draft Core Strategy, the document setting out where thousands of new homes should go by 2026. There will be a display and officers will be on hand for the hour before the main meeting to help. Turn up at 6.30pm to find out more!
