At long last after a number of years the land at the corner of Hawthorn Road and Warren Road is being cleared.
This work is being part funded by the Oscott Community Chest* to help improve the environment and appearance of this land. It should also help with issues of security as the Elim Church will be looking after the land.
Elim church will be using the land for parking and this in turn will help free off car spaces in the area for shoppers and traders alike.
I am pleased to have been able to put the various parties together to resolve the issue of this land and its use and hope parking in the area will be a lot better.
The Oscott Community Chest funds are awarded to groups and organisations by the Oscott Ward Committee (the 3 Oscott Councillors) following discussions with the Oscott Warr Advisory Board (made up of Local Community leaders, Voluntary groups, the Police and so on)
This year we were given 50K to distribute. Some funding from last year was rolled over as part of existing agreements to help continue good projects in the Oscott area.
