OSCOTT'S HOUSING LIAISION BOARD MEETS TONIGHT
There will be a meeting of the Oscott Housing Liaison Board tonight to see if it can be re established.
THIS WILL HELD AT THE ASHGROVE ROAD CENTRE AT 7PM THURDSDAY 28TH JUNE
In my view after running for many years with few problems it was side tracked by the interference of the Council and some who wished to put obstacles in its way. This occurred over the last few years?
The HLB was disbanded by the Housing department a year or so ago at which time they failed to consult in any meaningful way with Board members or Local Councillors about their decision. Sadly that just about summed up their attitude to the Oscott HLB as far as I am concerned.
Hopefully if it can get back off the ground tonight this time round and if its members stand their ground and resist any undue interference, it could make a real difference again to the Oscott area. New Housing Officers will be assisting the meeting tonight and I am hopeful this may make a difference.
