News from Rushcliffe Liberal Democrats

    First Jayline, and now the Salad Bowl is to close. The Salad Bowl has served West Bridgford for many decades.

    Rent and rates, and reduced sales as people shop at Supermarkets, are believed to be factors.

    It would be good if another shop replaces it. Or will it be a Nailbar or Vaping outlet or another Estate Agent?

    "Youth Work Saves Lives - Now We Must Save Youth Work"

    Please join us for our chaired panel discussion on the future of Youth Services at our Regional Conference on Saturday 21st October at Southwell Minster School

    The Youth Service, across the country, has seen devastating cuts in recent years, as have youth services more widely. Research has shown that around £387m has been cut from Youth Services by local authorities since 2010. Councils, in turn, blame Central Government for this by referencing the reduced budgets they're having to deal with.

    Brexit isn't either all good or all bad. It's a very complicated mixture - with some good and bad consequences. During the Brexit negotiations it is important that our politicians understand those areas where there is potential for bad things to happen, so that they take care to avoid them.

    One of the most threatened areas is the 'British' motor manufacturing industry. This industry employs 169,000 people in this country, but it is not British owned, nor does it produce cars using only British components. Its owners are from Japan, France, Germany, India, America etc.. It assembles cars using many imported components - 79% of them from the EU.

    Sharphill aka Melton Rd. Outline Planning Application for 600 dwellings, Primary
    School, Community Park and associated matters.

    Ref: 17/00941/OUT.

    Considered at Planning Committee on 14 th September 2017

    Speech by Liberal Democrat Councillor Rod Jones

    [with notes on other comments].

    The principle of development is established and I do not like it but we are where we are. I
    am pleased that 30% of dwellings are to be 'affordable' - there is a large need for rented
    social housing. I hope that, unlike the recent Wilford Lane plan, affordable housing will be
    dispersed in clusters throughout the estate not clumped in one place.

  • Discharge and flies
    Article: Jul 18, 2017

    Tuesday morning shop owners and shoppers on Melton Road West Bridgford had once again to step carefully to avoid the flies but could not avoid the rancid smell.

    Drips from an animal waste collection vehicle leave a putrid pool which water does not dissipate. The owner changes where it is parked, distributing the smell and flies including on nearby roads. Shop owners and residents are understandably upset.
