The following selections are taken from the agenda as matters of interest.
15.4 The following notice of motion has been received under standing order 11 from Councillor J W McGrath:
“Broxtowe Borough Council wants to do all that it can in order to ensure that development within the Borough delivers benefits to local people. The Council therefore resolves to bring forward supplementary planning policy in order to ensure that Section 106 agreements can include contributions to ensure that developments complement and benefit the local labour market and economy by raising skills and enabling local people to compete for the jobs generated. Through this approach the Council will be looking to increase the number of short and accredited training courses, apprenticeships,
The above came about after several lengthy conversations between both Councillor John McGrath and Councillor Richard MacRae, if adopted it will help local people get training for local developments paid for by local developers. This is something Stapleford Community Group started in the past by approaching local developers and receiving funding which enabled the previous CSCS Courses to be funded. It certainly is a step in the right direction.

Parks and Environment
Pasture Road Recreation Ground, Stapleford
The parks team has recently been informed that a joint funding bid between the Council, Groundwork Greater Nottingham and Stapleford Community Group has been successful with £21,700 secured towards installing a new perimeter footpath around the park. The path will be similar to that introduced at nearby Hickings Lane Recreation Ground, which has proved very popular with park visitors of all ages. Funding has been allocated by Veolia Environmental Trust together with an allocation from the Council’s capital programme to improve parks and open spaces.
Even though most people are aware of the hard work that Stapleford Community Group carried out for this project, it is good to see it getting a mention to the full council, it really is nice to receive credit for our hard work.
