Council Election Results May 2003
Parties Share Power
Gedling’s politicians have agreed a power sharing arrangement which has seen the cabinet portfolios and committee chairmanships divided between the main political parties.
The position of Leader of the Council will be shared between the Leaders of the Conservative and Labour Groups.
Local Government Improvement Programme
"Gedling is a competent and sound council that has the potential to achieve a great deal more. It has many examples of high quality services, which have been widely recognised through external validation. Gedling delivers what it is committed to, its financial position is robust, it has loyal members with clear emerging leadership and it employs many high calibre staff". This was the verdict of the inspectors from the Local Government Improvement Programme when they visited Gedling Borough Council earlier this year.
Neighbourhood Wardens Launched
Neighbourhood Wardens have now taken to the streets of Gedling Borough.
The new service has been launched following strong support for the idea resulting from consultation with local people.
This included responses to a survey in the Council’s magazine, “Contacts,” and consultation work through the Gedling Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership, including last year’s Nottinghamshire Police Fear of Crime Survey and events held by Gedling Partnership.
Revamped Bar Re-Opens
The Richard Herrod Leisure Centre bar has just been officially reopened after a £100,000 refurbishment.
The work, which has been carried out by Bulwell-based contractors Harrington’s Ltd includes new bar, complete redecoration, new improved stage, new lighting, big screen and soft furnishings.
Carnival in the Park
Preparations are now well underway for one of the highlights of Arnold’s summer events calendar.
The two day Midsummer Carnival, which is free of charge, is set to take place at Arnot Hill Park on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 June.
