New Year, new look for North Bransholme
Published by Riverside for Riverside in Housing and also in Communities
Riverside will unveil plans for environmental improvements in Hull as part of a series of open community events.
As part of the regeneration of the North Bransholme neighbourhood, Riverside has listened to the views of local residents and partners to create a wish list of improvements to public spaces.
Riverside’s plans include a new environmental maintenance service called Your Place to be delivered from January. Residents called for a one stop shop approach where all services, including landscaping and removal of graffiti, fly tipping removal and dog waste could be reported to a single point of contact. A new dog waste removal machine, known as a pooper scooper, has already been purchased. Free dog waste bags and carriers are also available from the local neighbourhood office.
Riverside also appointed master planners, re-form, to work with local residents and translate their hopes and dreams into a series of environmental improvement projects including new trees, paving, parks and play equipment. The North Bransholme Area Board and residents group URBaN support the ambitious proposals which will take several years to deliver. Proposals for the first phase of improvements, will focus on the Pennine Way/Saddleworth Close area and complement the development of new homes in the area.
The Riverside North Bransholme Neighbourhood team will unveil the proposals for 2013 at the North Bransholme Community Centre from 6-8pm on Wednesday 28 November and 3-6pm on Monday 3 December, to coincide with the annual Christmas Fayre. Residents can also call into the Neighbourhood Office from Tuesday 27 November to Wednesday 5 December or view the online version.
Carl Mitchell, Operations Manager, is excited about the projects and wants as many residents as possible to look at the proposals and tell Riverside what they think: “We have really listened to residents’ views and taken them into account in shaping the services and improvements to be delivered in 2013. I look forward to continuing to work with local residents and our valued community partners. This will help us to deliver improvements that will improve the quality of life for everyone”.
