A number of residents living on Castledine Street Extension have contacted local councillors Paul Mercer and Ted Parton about a plot of land that is bordered by the rear of some houses, the book and the rear of the Grammar School. This land is nominally a nature reserve but there is no evidence that there is anything special about the area and tends to attract youths from the nearby state as well as people exercising dogs who would prefer not to deal with their fouling. A closer inspection of the area reveals a significant number of discarded cans of beer, needles, used condoms and other waste. Paul and Ted had a site meeting with an officer from Charnwood Borough Council to look at the possibility of having the area improved but were told that it would not be a high priority given the relatively small number of people who appear to use the it. Meanwhile, a number of residents have suggested that it should be sealed off or even sold. Meanwhile, the Grammar School is considering the possibility of rebuilding its swimming pool which lies immediately to the north of this area. Given that the school needs to have a close relationship with the local community in order to retain its charitable status, such a project would immediately benefit people in the area who already use the pool. It is unlikely than any decision will be taken very soon but, as the local councillors, Paul and Ted are keen to ascertain the views of residents in the immediate area. If there was a groundswell of support for disposing of the land or leaving it as it is then they intend to respect these views and argue accordingly. Either way, they are determined to give every resident the ability to express an opinion if they want to. Over the next few weeks, Paul and Ted will be calling on all of the residents on Castledine Street Extension and Humphrey Close to find out what they think. And for those who are not at home they can either respond to a written questionnaire or complete an online survey. Once this informal consultation process all of the residents will be circulated with a report on the results.
