AUBREY LONGE RE ELECTED AS CHAIR OF LOCAL NEIGHBOURHOOD FORUM
I was pleased to attend the Oscott Central Neighbourhood Forum AGM today and listen to the views of local residents.
Many of the issues raised are on going ones which this Council take to long if ever to deal with. The Greenholme Road/ Aldridge Road junction, the Booths Lane Carriage way*, the state of some of the Oscott shopping areas, the lack of public toilets in the area and the age old problem of dog fouling were amongst many issues raised.
I will continue to raise all these issues with the various Council departments
Aubrey Longe a long serving member of the forum was re elected as chair and I am sure he will continue to try and serve the community to the best of his ability.
* Along with a Representative of the Booths Farm Neighbourhood Forum, number of possible new approaches were discussed to try and remedy this long and complex situation. I may be able to reveal more at a later date if all goes well?
