in front of one."

Liverpool gets the go ahead for further development at NGV Liverpool
REGENERATION Liverpool, the joint venture
partnership between regeneration specialist Sigma Inpartnership and
Liverpool City Council, has signed an agreement with Countryside
Sigma Ltd to develop 24 new homes in the Norris Green area.
The new, high quality 2 bedroom homes will be built at the NGV
Liverpool development adjacent to Monksdown Primary School and will
be managed by housing association Cobalt Housing.
Planning permission has been granted to develop the homes.
Construction will commence later this month.
In addition, a planning application for improvement works at the
school is also due to be submitted imminently by Regeneration
Liverpool, which (subject to approval) will start on site in January
2014, and will enhance the physical and working environment of the
school, which already enjoys 'Outstanding' Ofsted
Graeme Hogg, director at Sigma Inpartnership, said:- "We are
very pleased to have signed the agreement to develop the new two
bedroom homes at NGV Liverpool. We are wasting no time at all in
getting on site and we expect all 24 homes to be up and ready for
people to move in by March 2014. The new homes will complement the
works planned to take place at Monksdown Primary School, with both
projects assisting the Mayor in achieving his priorities to improve
educational provision and provide new homes in the City."
Councillor Ann O'Byrne, the City Council's Cabinet Member for
Housing and chair of Regeneration Liverpool, said:- "The work
Regeneration Liverpool is doing to transform housing in Norris Green
is making a huge difference to local people, and this is yet more
good news for the area. If we want to build attractive, vibrant and
sustainable communities, it's really important that good quality
housing is supported by excellent local facilities. This scheme is a
great example of how we can achieve that. By tying in major
investment in new homes with improvements to the local school, we
can ensure there are even wider benefits for the community. It's
fantastic to see things moving forward at such pace in Norris Green,
with the submission of this latest planning application. If is given
the go-ahead, this scheme will be an important piece of the jigsaw
in the wider regeneration of the area."
Stephanie Gough, head teacher at Monksdown Primary School, said:-
"The entire school community is very excited about the proposed
plans for our school. We will be getting extra playground space for
the pupils in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, including wild life
gardens, a fruit and vegetable allotment and a sports area. The
Junior children will have additional green space and a bike shed.
Improved security measures include new fences and CCTV."
Regeneration Liverpool is a true partnership between the community,
public and private sectors and is delivering sustainable and
effective regeneration across the City of Liverpool.
Ofcom said in 2015 "freephone
will mean free"
IT might sound good, but sadly we still have
to wait until 2015 for 0800, 0808 and 116 numbers to be free, but
many will see this as a good move forward. The telecoms watchdog
said that it is part of a a major overhaul to make telephone call
charges and dialling codes clearer. Currently these numbers are only
free from landlines and cost mobile phone users between 14p and 40p
a minute. Also Ofcom's new rules target much it costs to call
companies and organisations such as government agencies and
charities on non-geographic numbers; like those beginning with 08,
09 and 118. Ahead of these changes a nationwide communications
campaign will launch in 2014, aimed at explain the call charge
changes. These new Ofcom rules have will not come into effect until
26 June 2015. Ofcom said that this gap should allow all the
companies and service providers to make all the changes required.
