  1. Hammerwich has always looked like an anomaly on the map. Like a small hamlet that should be part of Burntwood.
    Having a look at their plan, I also see that a large chunk of Burntwood is in Hammerwich, so I assume rather than suggest giving the area to Burntwood, they are keeping it as a golden goose.

    I appreciate they do recognise themselves as a retirement hamlet with very few young residents. Similar to how they recognise there are no significant retail/industrial operations in the Hamlet due to poor road connections. There are more amenities in the Burntwood section than in Hammerwich itself. The top things the people would like are a Post Office and a Doctor’s Surgery. They complain about limited parking but offer no real solutions. They want a bus line, but I doubt the private bus companies will service an area populated with mostly elderly people who ride for free, and thus there is no profit, and thus no incentive to put a bus line there. They could write to the county council, but I doubt anything will happen. They talk of the importance of parks, but yet again the 3 biggest are in the Burntwood section.

    I don’t live in the small hamlet and hence I doubt they want my views. But I can still comment on this article. I think Hammerwich should call it as it is, a peaceful retirement hamlet that needs to give the Burntwood section (Triangle Ward) back to Burntwood, and focus on just being a nice little hamlet in the midst of fields and farms.
