Lawley Village Management Committee
The Lawley Village Management Committee consists of BVT Trustees and elected Lawley Village residents representatives, with relevant BVT Officers reporting to the committee.
Members of the committee look at all aspects of the Stewardship Services in place in Lawley Village. They help put together and monitor budgets, look at policies and procedures, make decisions on alterations, and in the future, will set standards on the maintenance and management of Lawley Village.
The committee meets 4 times a year, on a Wednesday morning at the Oak Tree Centre in Lightmoor Village. Additional planning and training meetings take place in between on weekdays, evenings and Saturdays.
Your Lawley Village Management Committee Resident Representatives
The residents are here to represent your views on a wide range of issues. They are currently working hard on reviewing the Value For Money of the charge. Later in the year they will be reviewing the design guide and looking at ways to enhance the environment and the community in general, using the New Community Fund.
Jim Weir-Vice Chair LVMC
I have lived in Lawley Village for over 6 years. I was attracted to the community in part because of the opportunity to develop a community with shared values and to build a positive community spirit. I have been actively involved in ILCA, and was also a resident representative who worked with IMS to develop the model for the LVMC.
I am a Health and Social Care Consultant and have served on the board of a number of charities and have experience of serving on community boards and have served as Chairman of the Board of a charity. I have also Chaired a EU committee developing standards of care for people with an acquired brain injury.
I hope that I can use this experience to help the community come together to make the LVMC a success.
I have lived in Telford over 30 years. My family and my friends are all local to the area. Being part of a growing Telford community is something I love. I run my own company as a Broadcast Engineer and have good communication skills as well as organising skills.
I am a 40 – something mum of three who works in education. I have lived in Lawley Village since June 2010 and I believe this is a fantastic place to live which is going from strength to strength as it develops. In order to make sure that we as residents have our concerns represented and acted upon, we need representatives who will make our opinions, wishes and views clear. As a representative, I will ensure that I am available to listen and take forward residents ideas, questions and concerns. Lawley is a great place to live, but it would be an even better place to live if we as residents took this opportunity to turn some of our words into actions. I welcome the opportunity to work on your behalf to make sure we get the community we want, need and deserve.
As the Chair of the Community Association I am pleased to sit on the LVMC to bring an overall perspective on behalf of residents in all phases of the development.
I have worked within the construction industry for over 12 years as an Architectural Technician, a majority of that time spent working on residential schemes, dealing with developers and constructors. My role has provided me with a good understanding of the planning and design process through to the completion of a scheme which I think will help me within this role. I currently work part time in this job role allowing me to spend time with my 1 and 3 year old sons within the community.
Working part time also allows me the flexibility to attend estate walkabouts around the phases, giving me opportunity to personally see which of the issued previously identified have been dealt with. I am also in a position to attend the necessary meetings/workshops that is required from the role as a representative.
