The group of 12 locals from Cromer Road, St Ann's Valley & Bellevue Court said that "they wanted to concentrate on improving facilities along with local services for all the people living in the area."
However, their main project should be 'overseeing' the Robin Hood Chase Regeneration Scheme, and lobbying Nottingham City Council officers.
The majority of those who attended the meeting said that "they wanted new shops & a super market to be built on the precinct, and did not want to see any new social houses built on any of the public open spaces there."
Already over 230 local residents have signed a petition to this effect.
The residents attending Monday's meeting agreed to approach a number of high street stores, including Iceland and the Pound Shop, to see if they would be interested in taking over the former Co-op store on the Robin Hood Chase that closed down in November 2012.
Several other issues were raised at the meeting, including the City Council's failure to grit around the Bellevue Court flats complex, which housed a large number of elderly & disabled residents.
The problem of double parked cars along St Ann's Well Road which made crossing the road very unsafe. And the apparent lack of Police & Community Support Officers patrolling in the area.
The next meeting of 'SATRA – Central' will be on February 25th; 7pm – 8:30pm in the community room at Mellor's Lodge (Blue building), on the Robin Hood Chase.
