This young Calverton BMX champion showed his impressive array of trophies and medals at the November parish council meeting. He helped present the case for Calverton having its own BMX track in the William Lee Park. As probably the youngest resident to have ever spoken at a parish council meeting, his contribution to proceedings was very much appreciated.
It is important to stress that Calverton Parish Council is not responsible for final decisions taken on future housing numbers for the village. However, it has taken an extremely active role in the planning process; fighting hard to bring down the total number proposed (with some success – the highest figure of around 2,000 dwellings has been slashed to current proposals of around 500 new houses).
GBC has consulted on its Local Planning Document (LPD), which will determine exact housing numbers and sites for each location. Gedling Borough Council’s LPD Consultation ended on Monday 4th July 2016. You can read the Parish Council’s response to the LPD consultation here. The Local Planning Document is currently the subject of a statutory public examination. This is being held at GBC’s Civic Centre. Members of the public can attend. Calverton Parish Council is being represented at the hearing sessions that are relevant to Calverton. It is hoped that the Inspector will make recommendations that the plan should be modified so that it is in conformity with Calverton’s submission neighbourhood plan.
Further details of GBC’s Local Planning Document Examination can be found here.
Calverton Parish Council has no direct control over the matter of total housing numbers and has made representations throughout the Local Plan process in order to try to reduce total housing numbers further and to ensure that the most sensitive areas of Calverton’s landscape are protected. It is hoped that GBC will work constructively with the Parish Council and give proper consideration to Calverton’s emerging neighbourhood plan. The Neighbourhood Plan Working Group has been developing Calverton’s Neighbourhood Plan in order to determine which areas should be protected from development and how the development should best be integrated within the existing village.

Notts County Council has brought in measures (implemented from April 1st 2016) to ensure that only those who are eligible can make use of their recyling centres. This means that residents of Nottinghamshire County (excluding Nottingham City) must register their vehicle(s) before they will be permitted to use the facilities. The registration process can be completed online via Notts County Council’s website.
Alternatively, for those not able to register online, NCC have requested that their customer services centre is contacted on the following number:
