The Burslem and Middleport Local Forum meets monthly in the Burslem School of Art. Here are a few updates from last night’s meeting:
- Middleport Residents Association, Midland Heart, John Baskeyfield, RENEW, British Waterways and CAB (more? I lost track) have all been involved in some excellent work over the last few weeks to create community gardens and develop a shared allotment for older people.
- You can see all of this at the Middleport Fun Day on 14th August.
- The Forum discussed its future direction and suggested future meetings themed around the Port Project, land, future funding and Burslem town centre.
- Debbie Hope from RENEW shared latest developments from the Middleport programme. This includes refurbishments, greening projects, further clearance and street works. Email debbie.hope @ stoke.gov.uk for more detail.
- The Burslem Port Project is making good progress with further landscaping and investigation work.
- There is currently a display in the School of Art on progress and plans for Burslem Town Centre and the community are invited to give their views.
For more information about the Local Forum or to get involved email karen.dulson @ stoke.gov.uk. The next meeting will be on July 29th.
