    Some of the options seem lacking in character. We should be looking to make Beeston a place of interest, not just a " run of the mill " suburb. Incidentally...do you really mean to have "beech " events at Broadgate, or would you rather have BEACH for the summer ? !!! I have noticed, and not only in this area, an increasing lack of spelling ability on 'official' sites. Surely you employ people to double check !

    Whilst I have taken part in this poll, I find the list very uninspiring which is why I have only been able to tick 3 things. I would have hoped for a more creative list of possible improvements in light of the new tram. Very few of the improvements listed would make a serious change in my opinion and this is a real shame. There is a possibility that we could make Beeston a really great destination but it requires a little more imagination - I don't think that budget restraints are really an excuse.
