-[[ News | News & Belated News ]]+===== June 2019 - Rushcliffe Borough Council is reported as trying to sell off Lutterell Hall for development. ===== 
 +{{ :​pasted:​20190609-134148.png}} 
 +West Bridgford Community Hall, in recent years re-badged by Rushcliffe Borough Council as "​Lutterell Hall". The hall has been a prominent part of West Bridgford life since 1929. Used as  a daily preschool, a venue for wedding receptions, political hustings, childrens parties, community meetings and for for numerous miscellaneous activities and classes the** Rushcliffe web site** says this: 
 + 
 +"​**Lutterell Hall is an extremely attractive period building situated in a prime central West Bridgford location. 
 + 
 +The Hall is ideal for wedding receptions and celebrations of all kinds. It is adjacent to St Giles' Church and Central Avenue and within walking distance of West Bridgford Methodist Church and Holy Spirit Catholic Church. 
 + 
 +Lutterell Hall is very popular for children'​s parties, meetings and one-off events. In addition, the venue hosts regular weekday dance and exercise classes and children'​s activities. 
 +**" 
 + 
 +Sounds good? Sounds like a valuable part of community life in Bridgford, a local asset? I guess that's what  makes it a prime candidate to be considered for selling off for redevelopment.

 +==== July 2018 - The end of planning constraints in West Bridgford ===== 
 +[[https://​gallery.fulford.net/​picture.php?/​8941/​category/​296|{{https://​gallery.fulford.net/​_data/​i/​upload/​2019/​04/​24/​20190424234508-412325a1-la.jpg}}]] 
 +This monstrous great concrete and glass box that dominates the skyline and provides a picture window to all the neighboring gardens was not required to go through planning consent by Rushcliffe Borough Council. Because it contains concrete and glass the planners deemed that the construction was broadly similar to that of the beams and stucco of the Edwardian frontage. Nor was creation of a 2nd floor deemed to be a significant change in the shape of the roof. The local residents were not given the opportunity to comment, still less object and the build went ahead under permitted development. 
 + 
 +Interestingly the wooden framed windows and juliet balcony next door went through a 2 year planning process. Consent was denied and only after a Department of Environment review was consent granted. One can only speculate on what kinds of influence might have been brought to bear. 
 + 
 +Surprisingly it appears our Green Councillors support the officers'​ decision. 
 + 
 +I think from this point forward we can assume that no one in Bridgford will have to concern themselves with planning consent for any development.

 The cast iron drinking fountain which was hugely popular when I were a lad is still in place but is now surrounded by shrubbery and it is no longer functioning.

 Sometimes you will find the gates locked at 5.30 or 6pm when it is still quite light until 8pm, other times they will still be open when it is very dark indeed, particularly if there has been a big match at the City Ground or an England game on TV. Bank holidays, the gates aren't locked at all, which I assume is to avoid paying premium rates to the park staff. Sometimes you will find the gates locked at 5.30 or 6pm when it is still quite light until 8pm, other times they will still be open when it is very dark indeed, particularly if there has been a big match at the City Ground or an England game on TV.

 There is now a very active restoration society with ambitions to restore the whole length of the canal to navigability. Meanwhile the stretches of waterway that run through West Bridgford form lush and peaceful habitats spoiled by often difficult and unsightly road crossings. There is now a very active restoration society with ambitions to restore the whole length of the canal to navigability.

In contrast to the Bridgford Park facility, the play park here was also bereft of parents and toddlers. I found it curious on recent walk around the old village 28h October 2018) that the newly fashioned attractive public spaces had no one in them, Perhaps the designer intended that these spaces should only be eye candy for the motorised visitor, there were certainly no benches or bins that might suggest the presence of people.

 ==== Bridge Fields Fair ==== ==== Bridge Fields Fair ====
 Every year there is a bizarre ritual in Bridge Fields. At the beginning of October caravans start arriving and parking near the old railway embankment. Within a couple of days fair ground rides start arriving and are set up ready for the official opening on Thursday evening. The fair opens for a few hours each day until the following Sunday when it starts packing up again. A tiny handful of people go. Fun fairs I suspect are not generally popular among the burghers of Bridgford and the few that are interested will be visiting Nottingham'​s Goose Fair which runs over the same dates. It must make a substantial loss I would think and it puzzles me that the ritual survives although I am oddly pleased that it does. Every year there is a bizarre ritual in Bridge Fields.

 Beer prices were extortionate,​ as you might expect where there are low overheads (no staff, no buildings, no rates etc). Beer was £3.50 a pint, cider, being generally a cheaper product, was £4.00 a pint and larger £5.00 a pint. Still anything that reduces the consumption of lager get my vote and I didn't see any one approach the larger part of the sales stand at all. Beer prices were extortionate,​ as you might expect where there are low overheads (no staff, no buildings, no rates etc).

-In the streets between Bridgford Park and Radcliffe Road the conflict is not just between residents competing for space. There are also would-be shoppers seeking to avoid the charges on the official car parks who cruise the streets behind the park looking for spaces. The problem is compounded on match days when there are also football supporters looking for free parking within walking distance of Nottingham Forest'​s City Ground. The football fans are at least, only likely to block access for residents for an afternoon whereas the cricket fans will leave their cars outside your home for anything up to 5 days during a test match while they stay with friends or use the local guest houses and hotels. ​+In the streets between Bridgford Park and Radcliffe Road the conflict is not just between residents competing for space.
