Ihave today received this response from Alan Rhodes the Labour leader Of Nottinghamshire County Council. This was in response to the direct question I posed to him,:
“is it true that Nottinghamshire County Council are selling the Coventry Lane playing fields for housing development and that the freehold of the land beneath the new buildings will be transferred to the White Hills Park federation trust and the sale of land given to the trust by the county council will pay for the new school building?”
Alan’s response was:
“The Coventry Lane playing field land has not been sold. There has been dialogue with the school but there has been no formal proposal put to any committee of the council so to be drawn into speculation on a possible scheme would be premature. If there is a viable scheme in the future then it would be for the administration to determine if it was in the best interests of the local community.”
Thus I would like to pledge to the people of Bramcote that I Ellie Winfield, your Labour Candidate for Bramcote and Beeston North would work closely and consult widely with you in order to ensure that the best interests of this community are met. I work tirelessly to your interests as a your county council representative.
