DROITWICH Spa residents have the chance to raise their concerns over the controversial Yew Tree Hill development at a free event next month.

Wychavon District Council says its purpose is to ‘support the residents who will be affected’ by the year-long closure of Copcut Lane while developers carry out highways improvements.

Residents will also be able to find out more information about the diversions around the A38 and Pulley Lane because of the works being undertaken by contractors on behalf of Persimmon Homes and Redrow Homes.

The event will be held between 7pm-9pm, on June 11, at the Church of the Sacred Heart, on Worcester Road.

District Councillors, Coun Richard Morris and Coun John Grady will be in attendance, as well as Wychavon’s planning officers and WCC Highways.

Coun Morris said: “While talking with residents in the local elections it is very clear that there are many questions and misinformation with regards to the development and road works and this needs addressing.

“I am saddened that the developers will not attend but believe the meeting is still worthwhile.”

Coun Grady, said: “Many issues have been raised regarding the Yew Tree Hill development. This event is a great opportunity to engage with the community and to start an active dialogue with residents.

“We are happy to address any concerns or issues they may have relating to the development and associated road works”.
