Lucy Allan MP has been contacted by constituents raising concerns about the serious fire that began on an industrial premises in Ketley on Monday and is still burning.
Lucy has previously met residents several times at the former Greenways/Pink Skips site to discuss concerns about the impact of the site on the area.
Specifically, residents are raising concerns around:
- Industrial pollution
- Health and safety
- Vermin infestation
- Fire risk
- Road use by heavy industrial vehicles
- Impact on local air and water quality
- Impact on local schools and homes
Lucy is meeting the Chief Executive of Telford & Wrekin Council, local stakeholders and emergency responders tomorrow (Friday, 30th April). She intends to raise all of these issues directly and report back to residents.
Lucy said:”This site has long caused problems for local residents and has been an accident waiting to happen. It’s extraordinary that despite the owners ceasing trading in 2017 the site is still full of waste material. This is a very serious incident which will have long term consequences in our area. I am determined that residents’ safety and well-being are prioritised.”
