      • In a nutshell, it’s a brown envelope full of cash to secure a favourable decision in your direction. Ok, it’s a bribe. Clear enough? We all know it goes on.. it’s not what you know…but who you know. Another lovely property probably end up full of undesirables. Wonder where the Fire Assembly Point will be and the placard to advertise it seeing as with ten in it it’s a requirement. And parking? Let me guess…just fill up the street then?

  1. Such a shame, it’s a house I walked past every morning on the way to school. Such a prominent building in Woodthorpe. It says an awful lot when Woodthorpe is targeted for HMO’s.

    I left Park Road in 2012 after growing up there for 35 years of my life.

    It’s on a hill, parking is pretty heavy round there now as it is. The back garden was developed with a bungalow a good few years ago.
