26th April 2013 Broxtowe Borough Council, Stapleford Community Group 0 Comments


Minutes from Community Action Team meetings are supposed to be released within 32 days of the meeting taking place.

Nothing has been released as yet with regards the last meeting, not far from 2 months ago.

Lots of people were there to mainly talk about Peatfield Court, Stapleford.

A Freedom Of Information request was submitted to Broxtowe Borough Council with regards information about Peatfield Court, the council refused this request on the grounds the information is needed to be used in a council meeting first.

There is still a petition doing the rounds in Stapleford for those who are against the way the residents have been treated, this will be handed in to Broxtowe Borough Council by Stapleford/Borough Councillor John McGrath.

When a request was sent to the council regarding the minutes from the meeting they replied saying the minutes are with the councillor to sign off, this was over 2 weeks ago.
