On Monday 8th October work will begin to erect scaffolding at both the village hall and leisure centre. This will enable us to carry out repairs to both roofs and resolve the leaks that have been occurring on these buildings for a while now.
The scaffold will likely take a couple of days to erect and will be in place for about 4 weeks while the work is carried out.
Other than having the scaffold lorries on site for a few days while the scaffold is erected, and again when it is taken down we are not expecting there to be any impact on residents. Both buildings will remain operational during the works.
To give you an idea of the location of the scaffolding, please see the maps below:

Security Update – Sept 2018
At a time of heightened security concerns in the village, the NML Board considered it appropriate to report on a number of matters which we expect to be of interest to all residents in the village.
Please find a short paper in this regard – click this link: Security Paper Sept 2018
This has also been shared on the Netherne Facebook pages so that it achieves as wide a circulation as possible.
With best wishes

NML – Tree maintenance work in the Village March 2017
In 2016 NML commissioned a full survey of the trees on the estate by an arboricultural consultant. They reported on a number of trees (circa 100) that would require maintenance and then earlier this year, we decided to obtain further expert advice and quotations from two companies.
As a result of this process we’ve appointed a company called Arbortech to firstly review the 2016 survey and determine if the recommended advice was still relevant and, subsequently to start work on the maintenance work required. This maintenance work will include, amongst other things, pruning dead branches and wood, removing ivy at the base of trees and reducing a few trees in height. In addition, some new trees will also be planted in vacant sites (such as along the bottom of Netherne Drive).
It is always regrettable when trees need to be felled but we will always take the advice of expert tree surgeons on the best course of action to take. Normally a tree requires either substantial remedial works or the removal of the tree, when a tree’s condition is described as having a biological system of significantly reduced vitality for the species and/or age or the tree’s structure is described as having significant defects.
Unfortunately the experts have recommended that a total of six trees across the whole estate have either died (and are therefore in danger of falling down) or are in an advance stage of disease (such as being afflicted with bacterial canker) and are realistically beyond saving.
We are of course committed to replacing every one of these trees with the appropriate tree type, once the ground has been made ready and the best time of year for the planting of new trees has been identified.
You can see details of the tree work that is currently underway, which shows the trees and a brief description of what kind of work is being done to them, by accessing this file – NOTH – Conservation Work
Please be aware that trees highlighted in yellow on the attachment, are those located within the conservation area that exists in part of the village. In these cases the arboricultural consultant has to make an application (known as a TPO) on our behalf to the borough council to get their approval for this work to proceed. No work will be carried out on these trees until this has been received.
The work referred to in this post has also been referenced in the next NML newsletter which will arrive on member’s doormats early next week, although we have been able to provide a little more detail in this post.
