Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan

Have your say on the future development of Greater Nottingham with the new Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan here
Many local residents will not have seen this yet.
It is Rushcliffe Council looking at options for future housing developments as part of the Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan and included in the plan as a possibility for a separate development of significant size is an area adjacent to NoS.
The area runs north of the railway line on its bottom side, bordered by the A6006 on the west and north sides and runs across pretty much to Stanford on Soar to the railway line on the east side. The area is significant and might be of a similar size to say East Leake.
The NoS Parish Council will be responding to the consultation document, but of course local residents can directly have your say as well.
The area in the plan is referred to as R17 in case you want to dig into the documents.
Closing date Monday 14th September 2020

£1m Community Fund

£1m Community Fund.
We know that for many groups, including many parish and town councils acting as umbrella organisations for smaller groups, extra costs will be incurred, which is what our £1m community fund is intended for. So if you haven’t already applied, the fund is still open. These grants, up to £10,000, are helping with the additional costs of delivering essential local support to those most affected by this public health emergency, such as collecting and delivering food and medicines for people who are self-isolating and people who can’t leave their homes.

University of Nottingham – Sutton Bonington Campus – NOW CLOSED

To all local partners and associates,

Firstly, I hope everyone is keeping well, in every sense of the phrase.

The UoN Sutton Bonington campus is now closed.
The only exception is essential University staff and a small number of students that have not been able to return to their permanent family address.

Recently, we have seen instances of families, couples and individuals travelling to and using the campus for walks and cycle rides. Under normal circumstances we’d encourage the local community to enjoy our campus in this fashion. Unfortunately, we must now request for this not to happen. I appreciate the examples we have seen recently may not have necessarily been people from the immediate local area but I’d greatly appreciate your help if you could communicate to your network of residents that the campus is closed to visitors.

Many thanks for any assistance you can provide in this matter and if you have any questions, comments or concerns then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Kind regards, Jamie.

The Free Tree Returns

The Free Tree Returns

The Free Tree Scheme initiative forms part of Rushcliffe authority’s strategy to provide further sustainable environments across communities in the Borough with the chosen tree species native to the Borough.

Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Executive Manager for Communities Dave Mitchell said in 2019 when the scheme was first launched: “Thank you if you applied to the scheme, we are delighted with the response.

“There was also good interest in our tree warden scheme to protect and help trees to flourish in our towns and villages, so as ever we’re really pleased with Rushcliffe residents’ commitment to the environment.

“We hope that by increasing the number of trees in the Borough, as our communities grow, our green environments will continue to do so too and improve the quality of life for current and future residents.”
