Nottingham Estates, just inside Tarrant County in far northwest Grand Prairie, has formed the Nottingham Gas Lease Association to negotiate a favorable mineral rights lease with drillers. A Nov. 1 organizing meeting at Shady Grove Church drew more than 400 homeowners, and the group reports that it is receiving support from 85 percent to 90 percent of property owners in the neighborhood. The association is now seeking input from residents to determine what terms to include in a request for proposal that will be sent to oil and gas companies. Notthingham Estates includes 525 homes and 250 acres (not to mention streets named Robinhood Drive and Sherwood Drive!).
