Podcast! Is Redditch the new Eastern Gateway Studley bypass?

Ross Crawford 13th Sep, 2019

IS Redditch the new Studley bypass?

In this week’s podcast we talk to Councillor Clive Rickhards, Lib Dem County Councillor for the Studley division, member of the Redditch Eastern Gateway Steering Group and former chair of Warwickshire Council Council.

He’ll explain how Studley, with or without the Eastern Gateway, will still get more than its fair share of HGVs and his regrets at Stratford District Council’s decision to sell the green belt land that forms the southern part of the Gateway development.

He’ll also lift the lid on how areas of Redditch like Winyates Green could follow Studley and Alvechurch’s example and set up a Neighbourhood Plan to protect their communities.

It’s all on the Redditch Standard Podcast plus we salute Stevie Chalmers, the man who scored the winning goal for Celtic in the 1967 European Cup Final.
