Councillor Martin Plackett writes:-
The excellent Broxtowe Borough Council Environment Team last night carried out further cyclical maintenance work on Bramcote Island, including hand weeding where necessary and fertiliser treatment to boost growth of the shrubs. Further works are planned for the 8th/9th June.
Our Borough Business and Projects team too has met with Nottingham City Council Franchise and Sponsorship team, who have a wide range of commercial contacts, to seek help in generating income from sponsorship for the maintenance work on the Island.
Highways England have yet again been ‘pressed very hard’ to effect a thorough clean of the Bridge. They are indicating that when a new contractual agreement for trunk road maintenance is duly completed and in place from July it is hoped that this work will be scheduled. The Bridge is looking truly dreadful and in consequence pressure for the cleaning work to be undertaken will continue.

Broxtowe Borough Councillor, Bramcote Ward.
