Coach Trip to NOTTINGHAM - it's 'first come, first served'

In our last Newsletter we gave advance notice of an outing to Nottingham, and more details were announced at our meeting on 30th March. The trip takes place on Saturday 19th June, leaving Gateacre Village at 9.30 a.m. and returning about 7.30 p.m. Members of the Nottingham Civic Society will give us a guided tour of their city, and a choice of guided walks round the city centre.
The event has been organised jointly with the Wavertree Society, and very few tickets now remain. If you are interested, please contact us
. Please note that the trip is open to paid-up members only, and the cost is £10 per person (payable in advance).

Happy Family decision
On 1st April the City Council's Planning Committee decided to grant planning permission for evening opening and the sale of takeaway food at 185 Grange Lane, but only until 1st April 2005. This is 'in order to allow the local planning authority to assess the impact of the evening opening hours of the premises on parking and traffic in the area, in the interests of highway and pedestrian safety'.

'Plot A',
Hunts Cross Avenue

It seems that, as well as damaging the supposedly 'protected' pine trees (see last Newsletter) the new house between 32 and 38 Hunts Cross Avenue has not been built in accordance with the approved drawings. A retrospective planning application
(ref. 04F/0751) has therefore been submitted to regularise the situation.

Pevsner Guide on Sale
The new Pevsner Architectural Guide to Liverpool - written by Joseph Sharples who gave us an excellent talk in February
- is due to be published on 20th May. We hope to have a limited supply for sale at our meeting on 25th May, price £9.99, alongside our usual range of books, leaflets and tea-towels.
