The following are a list of topics/issues that the residents and GPNA have discussed with the NGP Management Company. Some answers are still outstanding which we will have in the next update towards the end of July 2022.
Spine road update
Road Safety Audits approved on Monday – Further works on junction 6 for lighting – lighting to be done within 6 weeks, then it will be opened to the public.
Role was challenged with NCC but ManCo were shut down – Wildlife Officer Role filled by Alex – National Wildlife organised this – we are going to see if we can get the job description to hold NCC accountable.
Tender process will start again in January/February to look at the scope of works for lighting / landscapes etc.
Costs for gritting
Rachel is chasing up the costs from the relevant companies to find out how much this will be so we can survey residents to see if they want to proceed
GPNA to create a survey for multiple features across Great Park such as Dog Park, SEN equipment in Play Parks etc. It will be a simple yes/no survey, explaining that if anything went ahead, it will just be increasing the annual service charge. If we get features that residents are clearly in favour for, then we will do a further detailed survey for each, to then propose to the management company/consortium.
Drainage work being done by developers (possibly six weeks left) – Morrisons are meant to be breaking ground on Monday.
Adoption – Walkworth / Melbury / Greenside / Elmwood
Walkworth woods fully adopted. Melbury is on phase 2 of 8 adoption straight to NCC. ManCo to adopt a lot of landscaping across around the park. The map will be shared and explained.
