On Wednesday Wyre Forest District Council are organising the inaugural ‘State of the District’ (otherwise known as State of the Area Debate). This is a public event open to businesses, public, ‘partners’ and stakeholders’, and hopefully it will an annual event. It is to be based on the ‘Question Time’ format, but for this to work questions are needed. Luckily questions can be submitted before and during the event. You can submit questions and ideas with via email to the council Regeneration Team; tweet the council @WyreForestDC with the hash tag #wfsota; or even, post on the council Facebook page. However, since I wholly approve of this event, I will offer my help. If you have a question or idea then you can also submit it here on this blog on the ‘Agenda. I will happily transfer it over to the council.

Questions/ideas so far submitted via twitter have been:

What's happening with Crown House, Kidderminster? All the tenants have gone. [Is it to be] ...knocked down or [developed into the] 'Crown Hotel'?
