Wolverhampton Tories and Lib Dems take control

Last night, Wolverhampton’s Conservatives and Liberal Democrats came to an agreement that will see the Tories run the city council with support from the Lib Dems.

Neville Patten – the new leader of the council – gave the details to The Stirrer, where he revealed the following:

  • The unpopular and ineffective A449 red route in Fordhouses will be scrapped.
  • Kerbside plastic and cardboard recycling will finally come to the city and they’re promising within three months.
  • There’ll be a review of youth services with the suggestion of more facilities for teenagers.

That’s on top of their commitment to lower council tax. I’m hoping to interview Neville Patten on tomorrow’s Wolverhampton Politics Show.
