Residents are being urged to voice their concerns about problems that are plaguing the Ollerton and Boughton area.

The Boughton and Ollerton Tenants and Residents Association (BOTRA) was formed from estate residents groups to one single group aimed at bringing community issues together within one meeting in order to bring a solution to community problems.

Attendance at the meetings include Nottinghamshire Police, district councillors, tenancy officers, tenants and residents and anyone may then be invited from partner agencies who may be asked to attend to help with a significant problem.

These agencies are then best placed to help with any community issues.

For example, it may be anti social behaviour, crime, dog fouling, and state of repairs to an estate or anything that you and the residents feel is a community issue.

The next BOTRA meeting is scheduled to take place at De Lacy Court community room, De Lacy Court New Ollerton on Thursday 9th October at 6.30pm.

A police spokesman said: “Please come and attend if you feel there is a problem on your area. Without tenants and residents attending then we as agencies are unaware of the problems that the community are facing.”
