Green Belt Under Threat As Government Throws out Rushcliffe Housing Plans
Two years ago the incoming coalition government scrapped the East Midlands Regional Development Agency and the Regional Assembly.
With that, one would think, went the crazy over-inflated housing plans for the borough. But apparently not.
The agency and assembly were abolished, but the housing targets stayed. So this year, when Rushcliffe put forward its own much reduced housing plans, the government threw it out.
This puts us all back at square one, with the threat of thousands of houses at Gamston, beyond Clifton and East of Gamston; all to be built on the edge of the existing built-up area, on the green belt, creating the kind of urban sprawl that the green belt was created to prevent.
ROAD REPAIRS & GRASS CUTTING
We are often asked who to contact about these topics. You can find out more about both on the Road Maintenance page of Nottinghamshire County Council's website
Some grass cutting is also carried out by Rushcliffe Borough Council and by Parish Councils outside West Bridgford.
RUSHCLIFFE YouNG MARKET
Part of the Olympic Legacy, The YouNG Market will take place on Central Avenue, West Bridgford on Saturday 6 July from 12 noon to 5pm. The idea is for the market to encourage and support entrepreneurial young people aged 13-21 who live or study in Rushcliffe.
The young people have designed, arranged and promoted the market and entertainment will be a large feature of the event.
PROTEST AGAINST THE BEDROOM TAX
The Green Party opposes the government's new Bedroom Tax.
Across the Nottingham area thousands of families will be affected by this new tax that increases the cost of living for many disabled people, single parents, families of those recently deceased, foster parents and the parents of children in the army or at university.
