Minutes from the open meeting of Residents Association (DRA) and Neighbourhood Watch on Monday 14
 April 2014 at 6pm in the Old Crown restaurant.
1. Roll Call and Apologies Present:
Manjit Panesar, Bal Chohan, Rosie Pocklington, Lucy Cattel, Dervla O’Mahony,
John Gordon, Lisa Zdravkovic, Elisabeth Hewitt, David Barnes, Gurshinder Sohal, Pamela Pinski.  Apologies: Tim Franklin, Richard Trengrouse, Ian Winkles, Glenn Howells, Trevor Pitt, Mike Hopkins, Joe Holyoak, Gail Maynes. 2.
St Patrick’s Parade
 The parade was deemed a roaring success, with good weather, good spirits and good
policing. There were only nine arrests for the gathered crowd of 80,000. 3. Shisha Lounges DRA is campaigning to improve the regulation of shisha lounges, in light of the recent fires/arsons. Our next meeting in June will focus on this subject, with input from colleagues in planning, environmental health, fire service, and police. 4. Environment and Litter There have been some improvements in litter recently, particularly on Warwick Street, but there is still a long way to go. Colleagues from Maverick and Ember Television pointed out issues on Heath Mill Lane. John Tighe of The Spotted Dog and Michael Dadra of Nisa Local both sweep the footpaths outside their businesses daily - they were commended and held as an example of good practice. 5. DRA Response to Birmingham Curzon Masterplan Our response will be submitted by the deadline of 24th April. Overall, the plan seems to be a good blueprint, but fails to address the digital future of the city. See more on our website.  6. Police Report and Neighbourhood Watch News The Digbeth Police are also working on a winter initiative to coincide with the clocks going back in the autumn, and have started patrols on weekend evenings to support the night time economy. Nechells Tasking Group meetings will take place on 30 April, 28 May and 23 June at 18:30 in the Paragon Hotel.
7. “You Are Here”
 More information about the "You Are Here" series of events is available on our website.  Residents were warmly encouraged to take part. 8. Any other business a. Hyperlocal Conference Pamela attended a West Midlands Police conference aimed at engaging with Hyperlocal websites (such as DRA). It was well attended and useful conversations were had. b. Active Parks launch at Eastside City Park  All residents and supporters were invited to Eastside Park on Monday 5th May to join in the planned activities such as rounders and croquet. More information on our website.
