Show your concern over the suggested building on King’s Hill
by attending the Regional Spatial Strategy Examination

at 14.00 hours  on Thursday 4th June 2009
at the Molineux Football Stadium, Waterloo Road, Wolverhampton

 If we are going to get the powers in charge to take our fears seriously, we need to get a reasonable number of Residents to sit in on this Public Examination and observe the proceedings – i.e. to create an impression of our concern on those making the decisions. You will be given an attractive FRA lapel badge to add to the effect.

Because we were late learning of the intention to build on King’s Hill, we missed the opportunity (December 8th 2008) to register our interest. However, while we were allowed to submit some documentation, we will not be allowed to speak at this Examination. The word ‘Examination’ does not mean that you will be tested but that this is the conclusion so far gained from inspecting the submitted material and the discussions carried out prior to this  Public Examination.

Registered persons are sat around the tables laid out in a square. Only they are able to speak out and comment on the views presented.
Peter Langley of the ‘Council for the Preservation of Rural England, (CPRE)’ is one of the registered persons and hence is allowed to speak.
We have been fortunate in that Peter Langley has agreed to include our concerns in with those of other organisations he has been working with.

The ‘Observers’ i.e. those not allowed to speak, will be sitting in the rows of theatre type seats behind one side of the square of tables.
This single session is the only one specifically concerned with proposals regarding Coventry and Warwick District Councils. It will therefore deal with Coventry’s 33,500 new dwellings (up to 7,000 could come to King’s Hill) plus WDC’s 10,800 new dwellings (some of which could also come to King’s Hill).

We would like about 20 members or more to attend. There is a map on the reverse of this sheet and the easiest way is to catch the train from Coventry to Wolverhampton and walk from there to the Stadium. Hopefully, especially those of you who possess the ‘over 60’s free travel pass’ will feel able to come and will benefit from being able to complete the return journey without travel costs and gain a useful learning experience. Even if you do not have free travel would you still consider attending, please?
For those wishing to travel by car, there is free parking at the Stan Cullis Stand which is accessed from Jack Hayward Way but you have to tell the car park attendant that you are attending the ‘West Midlands Examination in Public’ on arrival and leave something on show in the car advising this also .
There is also a 09.00 hours morning session dealing with Coventry and Nuneaton & Bedworth BC proposals which a few of us need attend in preparation for the afternoon session. (NB - the 60+ card will not work for the outward journey for this earlier starting meeting and it is cheaper to buy a single outward train tkt).
