THERE will be a chance for Droitwich residents in the south east of the town to meet up with their district councillors and chat to them about issues in the area on Wednesday, as Councillor Richard Morris, and Councillor Ken Jennings pay a visit to Copcut Park.

The councillors will be visiting the new development at Lawley Way on Wednesday, July 16, and chatting to local residents, before heading to the Red Lion pub for an open surgery with residents from 11.30am to 12.30pm.

In the afternoon the councillors will be meeting with members of Save Our Green Open Spaces, before dropping in on a number of businesses at Primsland Way Retail Park.

Councillor Morris said: “We are looking forward to meeting with residents during the day. We have just received some really bad news with the Yew Tree development being accepted by the planning inspector and Secretary of State, despite our refusal. We have also recently had travellers on Addyes Way open space again. So we know residents may wish to discuss these issues and any repercussions in more detail. We are always happy to speak with residents in the south east ward and learn of any issues they may have.”

Councillor Jennings added: “These events are a great way to meet local residents in an informal way and to hear directly of their concerns. Whilst we expect disappointment with the Yew Tree Hill planning decision to be top of most agendas, we need to assure residents that we are still working on their behalf to try to get the best that we can from the situation.”
