I'm delighted that Ashfield DC last night accepted my colleague Cllr Ben Bradley's motion to set up a cross-Council group to examine how Ashfield and Gedling can work more effectively across the boundary that runs down the middle of Bestwood and Papplewick. In the coming years it will be even more of an issue as Gedling continue to build on the borders of Ashfield at Top Wighay and Papplewick Lane.
I hope that Gedling BC will also agree to have these discussions and properly take residents' views in to account. I've been having informal discussions with GBC and this summer wrote to every resident in Bestwood Village to properly consult on this, and the plan to review these boundaries received overwhelming support so I hope some solutions can be found.
Thanks to Cllr Ben Bradley and Cllr Chris Barnfather for their support in making this happen for residents.
