A message from the Council chairman
The Council is receiving a lot of enquiries regarding the Neighbourhood Plan and the proposed location of any new houses. I had hoped that by now we would be in a position if not to publish the plan, at least to have been able to hold the necessary referendum and start to produce the finished document. However, when we started the process, I and other members of the Council had no idea of the bureaucratic hoops we would have to jump through and consider before any recommendations could be made. I can only assure you that Councillors are working hard to get the plan before you and I would hope that by next spring we would be in a position to hold the referendum and, if everyone is in agreement, publish the plan in the summer of 2014.

Litter - thank you, Cubs!
Many thanks to members of 1st Keyworth Cubs B Pack who recently did some litter picking around the Square, the Parade, the Rectory Field and Church Drive; click here for more pictures.
Keyworth no longer has a dedicated street cleaner, and we can't expect volunteers to do all the work, so please be sure to let Rushcliffe Borough Council know about any problems with litter.
Alternatively, report problems by telephone: 0115 9819911.
