A HEDGE has now been planted on the north side of Wheatridge Road, Stoke Heath.

This hedge is a substitute for the original that was removed, when the houses backing onto Wheatridge Road were built.

The planning consent relating to these houses stated that the hedge was to remain, if damaged then must be replaced. However, this clause was not enforced.

Many thanks to our hard working councillors Michael Thompson and Chris Bloore who for many months worked to get this improvement to the environment in Wheatridge Road. Also thank you to both Bromsgrove District Council and Worcestershire County Council for carrying out this work.
