Public Meeting on Land Concerns

A planning application to build houses on the land on Albany Road, behind Earlsdon Primary School, has been submitted a number of times in the past. Many parents and other residents are concerned about the impact on children if such an application is successful. Some parents, together with the Head Teacher and Chair of Governors have been working together to look into the possibility of purchasing the land for the school.

There will be a public meeting on Tuesday 17 July at 6pm in Earlsdon Primary School to discuss how to progress these issues. The Head Teacher, Chair of Governors, and ward councillors have been working together to hold this meeting and will be in attendance.

Helping Hands Recruitment Event

As part of Carers Week 2018 the new branch of Helping Hands in Albany Road, Earlsdon (next to Albany Glass) is taking part in a nationwide recruitment event by Helping Hands Home Care. On Thursday 14 June, experienced carers or those thinking of a change in career will be welcomed to their local branches to chat with Helping Hands’ teams about the role of a carer and what it’s like to work at Helping Hands.

During the extended branch opening hours of 5pm – 7pm, the Helping Hands team in your local branch will be available to answer questions, have informal conversations about starting a career in care and provide friendly advice about what it takes to become a great carer.

If you know of anyone interested please ask them to register their interest online and Helping Hands will get in touch. People can register their interest on their website

CARTA Opposes Craven Street Plan

CARTA is objecting to another HiMO plan in the Chapelfields Conservation Area. The application is to extend an existing HiMO at 88 Craven Street from 7 bedrooms to 10, still with no parking provision, adding even more to the parking and traffic problems in the area.

The proposed two storey side/rear extension would also overshadow neighbouring properties.

You can view the application (FUL/2018/0796) here

If you would like to comment, public consultation on this plan ends 14 June.
