Conservation Area suggestion for the Old Meadows

OMTRA and community activists are exploring the idea of a conservation of the Old Meadows with City Council officers.

Objectives might include –
– celebrate and protect the older brick faced houses, and their fixings;
– protect the rooves;
– protect the Bulwell stone front walls;
– offer more protection against poor quality rear / lean-to extensions.
Next stage is to write a first bid up and consult with local residents, perhaps in October.

Area 8 committee – June 2018

WP_20180613_19_09_33_Pro (2) Area 8 mtg ab0220hCrime figures year on year for The Meadows are down, but we all know the challenge is to reduce drug selling, catch those selling and see those guilty of the six knifing incidents prosecuted.
Since the public meeting, on more has been arrested in possession.

The labour market and failing social security are the main causes of crime, but some of the prevention that used to be available including sports, youth club services and dedicated outreach work has been badly diminshed.

Next steps include –
– arresting those committing the crime;
– reversing the cuts (we can only wish);
– better cameras;
– starting up the working day base for the Police at London Road Fire Station;
– encouragin higher use of open spaces, play equipment and the library;
– getting the Meadows Youth Centre going again;
– improving satisfaction with playing fields;
– learning lessons from the latest visit by travellers.
Better co-ordination of the varous public services woud be helpful.

The next NCH common area to be improved will be Mayfield Court.
