Rushcliffe Borough Council gave a presentation in the Methodist Church Hall on 16th March which was attended by about 30 residents. Graphs and statistics on current housing, age profile and trends were shown, together with future possible sites for housing. Questions and comments were invited and it is hoped that responses to these will be sent to the Parish Council who will put any information received on its website.
The following items were raised:
Schools especially for 11+ children
Imbalance of current housing stock to needs
Line 3 tram extension and its effect on public transport to Ruddington
Sites already identified by developers eg Pasture Lane, Camelot Street and Loughborough Road
Effects of building south along the A60 will cause further congestion on the approach to Nottingham Knight Island and the junction with the A52.
Other points discussed related to the need for any imbalance in housing stock to be corrected, which is essential if the village is to remain vibrant and its shops well used. Other villages are being consulted and a return visit will be made towards the end of the year.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT MISS THIS MEETING!
