    As Liberal Democrat councillors on Newark and Sherwood District Council, we wish to express our great relief that agreement appears to have been reached between the Council and Datch Properties, which avoids the felling of several mature trees and the tarmacking of green space next to Newark library and allows the area to continue to be enjoyed and used by local people. Being timed at the end of the CoP 26 conference, it is good to know that environmental considerations have won out over short-term financial difficulties. Many people from various political persuasions and many local people without political affiliation have contributed to the groundswell of opinion, which made this last-minute reprieve possible and everyone who has lobbied, commented and protested peacefully should be congratulated. Needless to say, we will both be voting to approve this deal at the forthcoming extraordinary full council meeting.

    Mowing has now commenced using the 66" rotary Kubota. The mowing schedule was agreed earlier and we will review this later this year. Signs indicating the 'meadow' area have been in place. We will be placing similar notices in Froggatt's Field; there will be a number of mown paths across the dog playing area, but the rest will be left as unmown, although the likelihood of being able to be cut and sold for hay is remote due to the dog activity. We are considering the reintroduction of the gang mower already owned by STC and stored locally. To use it we will have to purchase an old yard tractor to be fuelled by Hydrated Vegetable Oil [HVO] and garaged next to the current workshop as there is limited room in the current workshop where more valuable equipment must be stored.
