JANUARY 2018 NAG OPEN MEETING
You are invited to 'Good Neighbours' a Question-Time-style open meeting the NAG is hosting on:
FRIDAY 26 JANUARY 2018,
6.00 pm to 8.00 pm
LECTURE ROOM, NEW MECHANICS INSTITUTE, NORTH SHERWOOD STREET, NOTTINGHAM
The focus of the meeting will be our neighbourhoods and the recurrent and diverse ‘groundhog day’ problems (such as low-level but persistent anti-social behaviour) which challenge the lives of the people living in them. As highlighted yet again by recent press reports, not only do these problems disrupt the day-to-day lives of residents, and degrade the quality of the environment, but they use up the increasingly scarce resources available to, for example, the Police, Community Protection, and the Council’s waste management and cleansing teams.
Also, and important for the future of our neighbourhoods, they side-line work being done to tackle cohesion, balance, sustainability and other community issues.
Lilian Greenwood (MP for Nottingham South) has agreed to act as the chair of the panel the NAG is setting up, and it is possible that Chris Leslie (MP for Nottingham East) may be able to drop in for part of the meeting. Invitations to join the panel are going out to Executive Board Councillors and Council officers with responsibility for housing, planning and community issues, to senior officers at Nottingham University and Nottingham Trent University, and to Nottinghamshire Police.
The primary aim of the meeting is to provide a forum for all residents where they can:
♦share their experiences and concerns with panel members and other attendees;
♦hear from panel members about what is being done to ameliorate the negative impacts of these problems; and most importantly,
♦have the opportunity to influence the shape of future actions.
It would be helpful if you could let us know whether you and family, friends and neighbours are planning on being there. Also, a note of questions you, and they, want to ask, or topics you want to raise, will be most helpful in trying to ensure that, in the limited time available, as much ground as possible is covered.
