I chaired a meeting of the Oscott ward Advisory Board today. This is where the Oscott Councillors meet with various Authorities, Voluntary Groups, Representatives from local schools, the Police and Local Community group leaders to discuss issues of local concern.

Amongst issues discussed at to days meeting were Anti Social behavior near schools, Parking near local schools, (I have called on schools to work more closely together to resolve these issues and to work closely with the Police) Planning application re Bowman and Caddick (all 3 Oscott Councillors indicated they opposed the mast application), Police issues and updates from Community groups and other agencies.
In regard to the Health authority there was a lot of apprehension expressed regarding the new policy to remove Primary Care Trusts and to introduce GP commissioning.
