Noise Complaint

by David Watts on 31 August, 2020

A property on the Bramcote/Wollaton border was broadcasting extremely loud music all afternoon today which was upsetting numerous local residents. After receiving a number of complaints about the noise I called on the house and asked them to turn it down. Unfortunately all I received was abuse and attempts (unsuccessful) at intimidation. As a result […]

Letter to Newark Advertiser

by David Watts on 10 August, 2020

This is the text of a letter I sent to the Newark Advertiser this week: Dear Sirs Robert Jenrick seems determined that his legacy to Newark will be to be remembered as the worst MP this town has ever had. Not content with making a large personal contribution to the air of sleeze that dominates […]

Bins on Peache Way

by David Watts on 10 August, 2020

I am delighted that we have been able to help the residents on Peache Way. Their communal bins were simply not up to the job so the borough council have agreed to issue each house there with their own wheelie bins, and the landlords are creating hard standing areas on each property for them to […]

Travellers on Moor Lane

by David Watts on 31 July, 2020

This evening a group of travellers have moved onto the running track on Moor Lane. I have been in touch with the council and asked that urgent steps are taken to secure their removal. The running track is used by a range of different groups and I fear what damage may be done to it.

Action on Sign

by David Watts on 30 July, 2020

A very large advertising banner has been erected over the past 24 hours close to the traffic lights at Balloon Woods at the top of Coventry Lane. This does not have any planning permission and so I have reported it to the council and asked for urgent action to be taken to have it removed.

Boris Visits Broxtowe

by David Watts on 30 July, 2020

Our hapless Prime Minister chose to visit Broxtowe yesterday, visiting Beeston and Stapleford. He didn’t display the usual courtesy of even informing the local authority that he was coming. He was here to promote the governments cycling strategy, so it seems off he chose a county where the Tory controlled county council sent back half […]

Thank You For Your Support

by David Watts on 13 December, 2019

Well there is no disguising how disappointing last nights results were for us. Nationally we improved our vote share by 4.5% but ended up with less MP’s than previously, and of course we lost our leader Jo Swinson. Something clearly went wrong with our messaging as we started the campaign on a high and went […]
