Apologies for the delay, but if you’ve been following our facebook page, you’ll have seen plenty of updates regarding the Heritage Car proposal for the Aida factory site. The council have turned down the proposal, with no details officially given as yet. We’re still in contact with local councillors, the car heritage company, and councillors and we haven’t given up yet! More as we get it….
Lots more in the newsletter, too, including a family quiz night at the Community Centre (26th April), a free coffee morning at the community centre (10th and 24th April), more on the Fashion Show in May, and lots of other information!
Below is this month’s Newsletter, which will be winging it’s way to you very soon. All the usual news and information, but there is also a new, potential option for the redevelopment of the Aida factory on City Road. We’ve now got permission to share the promo video, so do please have a look. Comments welcome!
The community centre will have a family Quiz night on Friday 5th April, which is always a good night. The last quiz was very popular, so do come along. Children welcome, and rounds for all ages!
Also, do save the date for Chester Green Event Teams 2nd annual fashion show (all proceeds going to this year’s Picnic on the Green event)! It was a great event last year, and will be on Friday 3rd May, 2019
Below is the February newsletter from the Residents Association. Lots of useful information, as always, and note there’s a quiz night and a family disco at the Community Centre in February. Do note the car parking charge letters that have been sent out in error, by the council (parking permits are STILL FREE in Chester Green!).
Below is this month’s newsletter….and what an exciting month October is going to be!
6th October, there’s a circus skills workshop at the Community Centre with the awesome Chango Fuego (https://www.changofuego.com/) This is not to be missed and will be great fun for all ages!
There’s also a quiz night on the 12th, and the now infamous Halloween Disco on 27th.
Sunday October 7th is your last chance to visit the Little Chester Heritage Centre (open 2pm – 4pm at St. Paul’s Church). If you’ve never been, do pop in and have a look! It’ll be closed after this until April!
The big news this month is that the Council are planning on developing the former Aida Bliss factory site themselves. Their current plan is to develop predominately Council/Social Housing on the site with none, or very view, available for private sale….. (we’ve had an introductory meeting with Ian Fullagar, Head of Strategic Housing for Derby City Council and Chris Morgan, Principal Regeneration Manager). However, they are about to start ‘consultation’ with local residents and groups. Plenty are currently airing their views on the Facebook page….do come in and get involved (or leave comments on this website)! We’re currently in discussions with the council regarding how the official consultation will be carried out, and also exactly what their plans will be….so watch this space! More details when we have them. https://www.facebook.com/LittleChesterResidentsAssociation/

We also featured on BBC Radio Derby last Friday. You can have a listen to our 5 minutes of fame below:
