Slow down for a smile!

Jan 21 2021 P1210015 1.jpgThe Town Council has had two Speed Indicator Device Signs installed. One of these is near Egypt Mill, on the A46 and one on Nympsfield Road towards the Youth Club. NTC has been working with the Police and Crime Commissioner and Gloucestershire County Council to obtain and fit the SIDS.

The signs give you a happy smile if you are driving with the speed limit, and frown if you are not. The signs also store data, so that speed statistics can be analysed over time.

Have Your Say: Carters Way land for community gardening?

A piece of land in Carters Way, Forest Green, which has been unused for around 25 years could be put to use as allotments or a community garden. The owner has agreed to lease the land to Nailsworth Town Council for a period of 10 years if there is enough interest from residents. The land is very overgrown and will require clearing, together with a badger survey for our furry friends who might be in residence there. Once it is cleared it could be used as a community garden or allotments.
Nailsworth Town Council want to know if enough people are interested in this proposal. We are asking residents to let us know what they think about this idea and whether they would like to be involved. We’d like to hear from you by Friday 25th February.

Where is the land at Carters Way?
Carters Way is off Nortonwood, near Miles Marling Field. The piece of land is behind houses in Carters Way and can only be accessed by a footpath.

How much will it cost?
We don’t know yet. We hope the cost of the lease will be very small, but it will cost to clear the land of rubbish and vegetation, and to make it into a community garden. We may also need to carry out an ecological survey, to check for badgers and other important species. It will also depend how many people want to get involved and what help they can offer. The Town Council will want to consider all possible costs before going ahead. 

How can you have your say?
1)    Come to a public meeting on Sunday 20th February at 11am in Miles Marling Field.
2)    Tell us if you think taking on the land is a good idea
3)    Tell us if you would like to be involved and how
4)    Come to a follow up meeting will take place at the Arkell Centre on Wednesday 2nd March at 6.45 pm, for anyone interested in being part of a gardening group.
