Safer Neighbourhood Group gets results PDF Print E-mail
Written by Southwell Council   
Friday, 04 September 2009
The Safer Neighbourhood Group has been set up to support the Police in targeting the most important issues for the local community in terms of public safety. We have raised matters like anti-social behaviour in the town, road and pedestrian safety and the prevention of flooding and other risks.

At the moment the Group which has representatives of the Town Council, Police, Newark and Sherwood Community Safety Department and local Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators is campaigning to get proper pedestrian crossings on The Ropewalk and outside Lowes Wong Schools and to ensure good police coverage in the town especially when behaviour gets worse, such as late on Friday nights.

The Group is about to start a recruitment campaign for some Special Constables who will only be tasked to support the regular Police Officers in Southwell. Volunteers for this new role will be recruited by the Nottinghamshire Police and be given full training. The recruitment will start in the late summer.

Meetings are held in the Town Council offices every two months, so contact your local Councillor if you have any issues you wish to raise.

 

 

Bin It!! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Southwell Council   
Friday, 04 September 2009

Do you know we have nearly 100 bins in and around the town? There are more than 60  litter bins and 36 dog waste bins. The Town Council has to buy the bins and replace them when they are damaged – at a  cost of around £200 a time. The Town Council also has to pay Newark & Sherwood District Council to empty the dog waste bins – and at £1.55 per bin per week  this currently costs almost £3000. Emptying the litter bins is the responsibility of Newark & Sherwood District Council so if you see a full bin you can call them on 01636  655600 and they will empty it. If you want to report a problem with a bin then contact the Town Council office and let us know if it is a litter bin or dog waste bin and it will be either repaired if possible or be noted for replacement when funding is available.

Adopt a planter PDF Print E-mail

There are seven planters in the town centre and eleven flower troughs attached to the town name signs on the roads as you enter the town. Would you like to help by adopting one of these? All that is needed is the plants replacing for winter and spring and a little bit of care and attention throughout the rest of the year, in particular watering when we have a dry spell (so not too often!). If you wish to volunteer to look after a planter or trough, please contact the Town Council office.

Emergency Advice Guide PDF Print E-mail
Written by Southwell Council   
Thursday, 03 September 2009

Just over a year ago the Town Council produced an Emergency Advice Guide which provided residents with information on what to do and who to contact in emergencies. The Guide was distributed to all households in the town.  This Guide is reviewed annually and updated where necessary. The only alterations that need to be made to the Advice Guide this year is a change to two telephone numbers. These are as follows:- Newark & Sherwood District Council (Emergencies) is now 01636 650000 and the Transco (Gas) number has been deleted and the National Grid (Gas Emergency Service) 0800 111 999 is to be used instead. If you want another copy of the Guide please contact the Council office.

King and Queen Street ramps PDF Print E-mail
Written by Southwell Council   
Wednesday, 28 January 2009

Motorists and pedestrians should have already noticed an improvement to the ramps on King Street and Queen Street. The roads were closed during the last two Sundays and repairs undertaken by the County Council to the ramps which had partially collapsed soon after they were installed. The repairs are looking good - but the Town Council will be monitoring them very carefully to note any signs of sinking.

The last ramp to be done will that at the top of the Roewalk and this will be done on March 8th.

Other good news is that work is due to begin on creating the new footpath along Kirklington Road towards Maythorne on 2nd of February. This will be a great benefit to  local residents and to the many visitors who walk the Heritage Trails.
