A PACKED OSCOTT WARD MEETING
I would like to thank all those who attended the Oscott Ward meeting today around a hundred people.?
Thanks to the Officers who had the courage to turn up and face difficult question
Also to our MP who managed to pop in and will be having major discussions with top officials about some of the issues that were heard.
But mainly I would like to thank the large number of residents who came and put over their concerns mainly about trees but other issues as well. They gave up their time to try and get over to officers their views.
There are no easy answers but the campaign to have a better tree pruning and replacement program for the Oscott Ward will go on. Also officers will go away and evaluate what they heard in regards to the Burford Road playing field issues.
It was also (nearly?) pleasing to see 2 Councillors from a nearby ward attend, we only just found room to get them in.
( For only the 4th time I can remember we had to change to a larger room to get all those at the meeting comfortably seated.
Councillor Barbara Dring had her work cut out but chaired the meeting well as ever and all those with something to say said it.
If anyone would like to know more about the issues discussed at today meeting please contact me.
