From the Town Council meeting on Wednesday 15th February

I. Southwell's new library

Councillors were unanimous in their praise for the Bramley Centre (the new library) on King Street which opened on Monday 13th February. The Town Council has commissioned a decorative commemorative scroll about Southwell to go in the library. This will be presented at the formal opening on 11th April. Activities for young people have already begun in The Core. It is an excellent co-operative venture and a great asset for Southwell.

2. Ropewalk Pedestrian Safety

A raised platform will be constructed at the top of the Ropewalk to improve safety for crossing at this busy location. Work will begin on Sunday 19th March and it is hoped to be finished by 25th March.

3. Fiskerton Road Recycling Site

The County Council has granted an extension for the site to remain open until September 2006. It is interesting to note that the the Environment Agency do not require tips to close once their landfill is full. This is a County Council regulation. Please continue to send letters of objection to Councillor Stella Smedley at Notts County Council. 

4. Parking Report.

The Town Council has now received a copy of the report commissioned by the District Council for consultants to look at parking district wide. The report is available for members of the public to read in the Town Council office (open 10-12.30 daily). Although it is a weighty document, only about 6 pages are relevant to Southwell. The report is being considered by the Cabinet of the District Council on 3rd March, so comments need to be with them by them. It doesn't give us much time!

5. Fair Trade

Southwell has been granted the status of being a 'Fair Trade Town'. A certificate to mark this will be presented to the Council Chairman at a Fair Trade Breakfast on Saturday 11th March. The award will be made by local TV presenter Quentin Rayner.

6. Price increases for Meals on Wheels and Lunch Clubs (eg Burgage Court and Kings Court)

Good News! After receiving many protests about the increase (from £2.05 to £2.50), the County Council has put the implementation 'on hold for the time being'. This is so that the Council can review how to make the increase, but do it in a more gradual fashion. They DO listen (sometimes!).

7. Hearing Loop System and Access to the Court Room.

The Town Council has authorised the installation of a Hearing Loop System in the Court Room, where the meetings of the Council are held. The Court Room is on the first floor of the Courthouse and despite many months of effort the Town Council has not found a company who can install a stair lift to enable disabled access to Council meetings. This is because of the listed status of the building and the way it is constructed. A lift (internal or external) is not feasible for the same reasons. 

8. Vacancy for a Town councillor

Following the resignation of Councillor Beatson-Hird a by-election has been called. Nominations close on 24th February and if contested an election will be held on Thursday 23rd March 2006.

9. Theft from vehicles

At a recent meeting of the Police/Parish Partnership members were warned that theft from vehicles is increasing in this area. The police urge all motorists to make sure they ALWAYS lock their vehicles and never leave valuables visible in them.

10. Southwell Community Speedwatch

Speedwatch is an important deterrant to speeding. Too many cars going too fast, especially along the town gateways - Halam Road, Lower Kirklington Road, Fiskerton Road and Nottingham Road. The Speedwatch Team is made up of volunteers and hopefully, seeing the team in action reminds motorists to keep within the speed limit. The team are not involved in any follow up action if motorists are found to be exceeding the speed limit. this is undertaken by the police.

We now need to expand the number in the team, so if you would be interested in becoming part of this valuable community activity, please contact the Speedwatch Co-ordinator, Colin Lewis on 813993, and he will tell you what is involved.
