Telford & Wreking Council

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Some people shouldn’t be allowed to breed, let alone run major engineering projects.

Quite a few schools in Telford are being rebuilt and one of them is a few miles away from where I live.  The council have chosen a hill covered in woodland as the site of the playing fields for this new school.  Work has already started on preparing the site in the form of hacking down the decades old (if not older) woodland from all over the hill, including the sides.

The feel of the whole area is different now the trees are gone and feels a lot worse.  It’s bright and airy but it’s lost its character.  But there’s a problem which the highly paid and highly qualified consultants and engineers seem to have missed.

There are houses at the bottom of the hill and the hill is very steep.  What happens next time it rains heavily – an April shower perhaps – when you cut down all the trees off the side of a steep hill?  Ask anyone from Boscastle, they’ll tell you.

    I know what you mean, that whole area just looks weird now.
