Parking on verges in the village.
The Parish Council receives a number of complaints on this issue every year. Unfortunately it has no power to stop residents & their visitors parking on the verges & pavements in & around Trowell. Complaints are duly referred to Nottinghamshire County Council for attention but in these times of austerity there is little or no money available to reinstate grass verges damaged by vehicle traffic. In addition to that, the parked vehicles are often left in positions that impede pedestrian traffic forcing people to walk through mud or worse still in the road.
The Parish Council would therefore like to encourage residents & visitors alike to refrain from parking on the verges around the village & help make the village a more attractive & safer place to live & work.

Don’t Hold Your Nose – Pick up the phone!!
The majority of residents in Trowell are aware that the village is regularly blighted with unpleasant smells emanating from industrial operations in nearby Erewash. The industries involved are regulated by the Environment Agency but to enable them to take action the EA need to be kept advised of any incidents that occur as soon as possible. That is where everyone in Trowell comes in – if you smell these noxious odours please pick up the phone & report it. It is a FREE phone number 0800 807060 so it will cost you nothing but your time. Online? – you can also email the EA on email@example.com .
It has been suggested that you use the following wording when reporting this issues – “I believe that the wind is in a south westerly direction and the smell is coming from an industrial estate in the Borough of Erewash.”
Many thanks in advance for your help with this problem.
