New Housing Choice

Are you struggling with your housing situation? Do you need help and advice? Maybe Housing Choice can help.

The Housing Choice Service is aimed at people who recognise that they are starting to find things difficult in their own homes and want to consider their options to meet their changing needs. These might include moving to more suit-able accommodation or making changes to the existing property. The Housing Choice Case Worker will be holding surgeries at The Misterton Centre on the fourth Wednesday of each month.

To book an appointment or for more information, please contact Bassetlaw Action Centre on 01777 709650 or by e-mail at housing@actioncentre.org.uk

Local Policing

If you want to influence what our local beat team focuses on in the next three months, complete Notts Police’s online Neighbourhood Priority Survey.

Together with meetings with residents and community feedback, the results of the surveys are used to help local beat teams set their priorities. Completed anonymously, the survey asks you to explain what concerns you have about criminal activity where you live. It asks for information about a range of concerns, including antisocial behaviour, speeding, street drinking, nuisance vehicles and other criminal activity. You can give information about your concerns and the days and times incidents are happening. You can also pinpoint exactly where the problems are, with a marker on a map. so, to have your say on policing in your area, go to www.neighbourhoodpriorit-ysurvey.co.uk.

Paper copies of the survey are available at The Misterton Centre.
