Making the case against HS2’s “M18” route

Emma Hoddinott, Chris Read and Sue Ellis supporting the Bramley Stop HS2 campaign

We continue to make the case that the so-called M18 route is bad news for our area, and urge the government to either change the plan or abandon the Birmingham to Leeds leg altogether.

Last week Cllr Chris Read spoke to The Guardian about Rotherham’s objections. You can read the article by clicking here.

You can find more information about what we’ve done over the last few years, and why we keep making the case by going to our HS2 updates page.

New Flanderwell parking buddies

Sue and Emma with the Flanderwell parking buddies

Inconsiderate parking outside school is an issue regularly raised with us by residents, so we recently wrote to all the primary schools in our patch offering to support them by funding creative signs, reminding parents of their responsibilities outside school.

The funding comes from our delegated ward budget.

Two of the primaries responded positively, and the first of the “parking buddies” have recently come into use outside Flanderwell Primary. We stopped by this week to see them for ourselves.

Hopefully the gentle prompt will help every to do the right thing, and to keep children safe from traffic.
