Improve the 'Bloody Steps' and Brindley Bank, Rugeley
PETITION TO IMPROVE RUGELEY EYESORE:
The footpath from Wolseley Road, Rugeley, leading to the Historic 'Bloody Steps' and Brindley Bank access to the Trent and Mersey Canal, has become a run-down eyesore which attracts antisocial behaviour. This is an important link from the Town of Rugeley to the Canalside and Staffordshire Way.
A local Community Action Group (Waterways Action Team Rugeley) has been set up to upgrade this area. WATR have applied for a £48,000 Lottery Grant to help fund the planned improvements, which are:
Upgrade of footpath from Wolseley Road, including Information Signs, Dog Mess Bin and Litter Bin. Renovation of 'Bloody Steps'.
Improvements to Brindley Bank area at base of steps including: Removal of litter, clearance of scrub and landscaping enhancements. Installation of bat boxes and soft banking for water voles.
Renovation of canal bank, and installation of fishing platform and picnic table. Removal of graffiti on aqueduct wall, and repaint fencing.
IN ORDER TO BE SUCCESSFUL WITH THE LOTTERY BID, WE NEED TO SHOW THAT THE LOCAL COMMUNITY SUPPORT THE PLANNED IMPROVEMENTS.
