As the coronavirus spreads, Hucknall Labour's priority is your health and wellbeing.
As well as doing everything we can to keep our members safe, we are committed to ensuring we fully contribute to the collective effort to protect public health.
We have paused all party campaigning and local meetings. Instead of canvassing and campaigning, we ask Labour members to get involved in supporting vulnerable people in our communities where and when they can – ensuring this is done safely and on the basis of public health advice.
We encourage the people of Hucknall, if possible, to join the 'Hucknall Community Care - Coronavirus' Facebook group, set up by Kate Edwards, to help the most vulnerable people in our Town. You can find the group here.
Please look after yourselves and feel free to get in touch with us if you need help.
On the 5th March 2020, Ashfield District Council held a Council Tax Setting meeting, where the decision to increase council tax by the maximum amount (2.7%) was voted on by all Councillors.
Only Labour voted against the increase. Unfortunately, the vote was carried.
In addition to this, the decisions to cut £10,000 from community grant funds and to not ring-fence money Edgewood Leisure Centre but put £20,000 in to comms were taken. Again, only Labour voted against these decisions.
We wanted to thank everyone who came to our #SaveEdgewood demo today. We collected a lot of signatures and had lots of great conversations, hearing reasons why residents don't want to see Edgewood Leisure Centre close.
Please continue to sign the petition here.
Hucknall & Ashfield Independent Councillors are trying to increase car parking charges at Yorke Street & Piggins Croft car parks.
The main changes to Hucknall include:-
Up to 4 hours: from £1.50 to £2
Over 4 hours: from £2 to £4
Hucknall Labour Councillors, Lauren Mitchell & Keir Morrison, have called on the Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Streets, Parks & Town Centres, Councillor David Martin, to SCRAP these proposals...
Cllr Lauren Mitchell said: "This is not only unfair on residents but would be bad for local businesses. We want to encourage people to spend time in the District, not put them off by doubling parking prices".
Cllr Keir Morrison added: "The car parking consultation has been confusing and beurocratic from the start. This doesnt take into account staff who rely on these car parks who work in stores located to the town centre who will be disproportionately affected".
Let Cllr Martin know you are against the increase in charges by contacting him at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also have your say by filling in the consultation form (deadline 9th March) here.
