  1. Wherever she decides to go, please tell her to keep the noise down when going out and returning at night. Make sure she tells her friends to do the same. It sounds simple, but this simple act of consideration improves student/local relations immensely. At the moment if I hear one more bin being tipped at 3am I will not be responsible for my actions.
  2. That's still very much the case. As a resident it has it's pros and cons. The extended summer holidays are great and so quiet. Freshers week (month) is less pleasant.
  3. Unfortunately, Robin-H Crookesmoor specifically has a density of over 50% in most areas. They were exempt from re-applying when the article 4 legislation came into force. It's great that there won't be any more made into HMO, however the current properties are still very much in demand. I know parts of Crookes that still stand at under 10%-plenty of scope for development up there!
  4. As a former student in the adjacent Bartolome House, and current nearby resident I have to say that it is sad to lose the Star and Garter, but it wasn't what it used to be, and I still have my fond memories of the place. The new building looks good, is inkeeping with uni buildings nearby and is a good location for students. My only reservation is that it will be more expensive than most private rented terraces, and price most students out of renting rooms there. Instead it will probably be occupied by increasing number of rich overseas students, who are usually Chinese and keep themselves to themselves anyway. Therefore it would not solve the problems caused by high densitys of student HMO houses in neighbouring areas.
  5. The trust (not the council) will have it in addition to current spending. The buyer of the property is also paying their legal fees so every penny goes back into the park.
  6. What will happen to the money raised from the sale of the cottage? We are legally bound to invest the money in improvements to the park. We expect to receive around £80,000 from the sale and the list of improvements includes play facilities, the animal farm, footpaths and improved sports facilities. Whilst clearly not all of these can be funded from the sale, the best options will be considered and investment of the receipt is guaranteed.
  7. This is what the council themselves say about reinvestment of the proceeds. Link is in post #395. What will happen to the money raised from the sale of the cottage?

  9. Part of the terms of sale are that the buyer pays fees for both parties, so if it goes to court then I imagine it will cost a fortune. ---------- Post added 16-01-2016 at 22:29 ---------- Are you talking about Weston Park? Graves Park is miles away from the uni campus.
  10. I've had several items go missing in August and October. Mainly children's clothing, but also a tenancy agreement. I live in Crookesmoor. Nothing cane of a formal complaint, but nothing else has gone missing since.
  11. It seems that is a question only the recycling faries know the answer to, Jeffrey.
  12. After a morning of toddler wrangling I've managed to phone them! Veolia have no idea why the whole street have had bins stickered, apparently those stickers arent supposed to be in use. They have arranged for a new box to be delivered, and for bin to be emptied tomorrow. I'll have to update my neighbours so they can get their own replacement boxes. Very strange...
  13. We haven't been mixing the recycling, the contents are still there and all perfectly acceptable according to the notice leaflet received from Veolia, with the 2015 collection timetable. All of the houses around here have had blue boxes removed and card only notices stuck onto them.
