What will be left of country park?
Having a Gedling Country Park is pointless.
Each week you see more planning proposals being submitted that want to take up more of its green space so it seems like its slowly being eroded. They should have just built houses on the old pit land in the first place rather than waste taxpayer money on a park that seems like a temporary arrangement.
Since it was created housing estates have cropped up, a road has been slapped through it and now I hear there could even be a supermarket.
‘Country Park’? Gedling Green more like.
Pub surge plan will damage industry further
I can’t believe Stonegate plan to charge more in their pubs for a pint during busy times.
The industry is suffering as it is with many pubs closing and blaming this on lack of custom. Do they really think charging more is the answer? They need to be looking at ways of reducing the price of a pint if they want people to come through the doors.
We have lost of good pubs and clubs in the borough recently, with the Crossing Club in Carlton the latest to go. I just hope those remaining don’t become inspired by this daft plan as it will only lead to closures and more Lidl supermarkets taking their place.
Calverton ‘forgotten’ by council
All I ever read in Gedling Eye is about money being spent in Arnold. This week it was new toilets. They’ve just had an AMP and still it needs more.
Spare a thought for Calverton. Nothing has been spent here but we have to give up our land and put pressure on our schools, doctors and leisure centre with new housing that I am sure helps pay to improve Arnold.
What about us? Why are we being forgotten?
