    The Annual General Meeting is on Wednesday, 11th October 2017 in the front room of the Combermere Arms, 90 Chapel Ash, Wolverhampton WV3 0TY.

    Notes for the AGM are on this page.

    Topics likely to be discussed include :

    • Wolverhampton Cycle Forum on 19th October
    • Consultation on Royal Hospital, Bilston Rd
    • Railway Station development

    There are planning applications coming up for two major developments that we should consider putting in WOW responses to as they will have implications for cycling in the city centre. The timings appear to be such that we would have time to discuss these at our October 11th meeting prior to finalising any response. Please do have a look at them if you can to inform our discussions; and please do make individual responses if you have time.

    1.Westside

    Earlier in the year WoW members attended a presentation by the developer, see MJ's note on the visit and an initial response.

    The planning application has now been submitted to the council:

    It is possible to view the application documents on the planning portal of the council website:

    You will need to press the 'Agree' button at the bottom to gain access to the index.

    The planning reference no. is 17/01102/OUT

    2.Royal Hospital Site

    (Those with long memories will note this was going to be a Tesco store until they ran short of money)

    This is now proposed for housing:
