Please Note

Wrockwardine Parish Council is NOT the Planning Authority; this is the function of The Borough Council. The view of the Parish Council does not carry any extra weight (over and above any other resident) nor is it guaranteed to be taken into account when any decision is made by the Borough Council. The Parish Council is simply invited, by the Borough Council, to give its views on planning applications. If a planning application affects you, or you have a view which you wish to be taken into consideration by the Planning Officers of the Borough Council then it is important that you convey that opinion directly to the relevant authority (which is Telford and Wrekin Council). The Parish Council is unable to “pass on” the views of others to the Planning Authority but it may take into account the views of residents of the Parish when deciding upon its own position on any particular application.

TWC/2015/0562  Land at the rear of 18,19 & 20 Bratton Road, Bratton, Telford, Shropshire

Changes to Arriva Bus Routes

The Borough Council has provided an overview of the changes being made by Arriva to the bus service they operate in our Borough.  Borough Officers have now been able to digest all the information that Arriva have made available to them and they have provided notes and a summary which can be viewed here.  I hope this information will be of assistance to you as the changes are quite complex.

The Borough Council will continue to lobby Arriva regarding these changes however they have no powers to insist on any changes, all of which are legal and not in breach of any of the Transport Acts.  Arriva have the powers to operate commercially without any need to undertake an impact assessment of these planned changes unlike Public Sector bodies such as the Borough.

Arriva’s contact details can be found in the note should you wish to comment on these changes.
