(mini edition) Kimberley, Awsworth, Cossall & Trowell News Update & Information Service – January 2016
Hi all, and make I take this opportunity to wish you a Happy and Peaceful New Year.
This newsletter is much shorter than usual and just highlights several issues in particular including an important public police meeting being held tomorrow in Eastwood.
There is also information on a Planning Committee meeting at Broxtowe tonight which is attracting a lot of attention from residents in and around the Stapleford area, with an Aldi application pending.
I’ll be back with a full newsletter edition towards the end of next week including details of the neighbourhood community meetings regarding the Swingate and Hardy Street Action plans in Kimberley on 27 January and 30 January.

4) Stapleford and Trowel Rural Action Group (STRAG)
I have been asked by STRAG to let you know of the following information:
Detailed plans submitted for the development of a 1st phase – a detailed application for part of Field Farm has now been received and STRAG have commented as follows:
Dear Friends of Field Farm,
Following to the release of Field Farm from the Green Belt and the outline planning permission given for up to 450 houses in November 2014, a detailed planning application has been submitted by Westerman Homes to Broxtowe Borough council for part of the site, and made public on 17 December.
This deals with about one-third of the Field Farm site, the south-western corner, between Ilkeston Road, Trowell Road, the footpath from Ilkeston Road and Boundary Brook. The proposal is for 118 houses, of which 33 (28%) affordable – 24 1-bedroom units, 10 2-bedroom, 29 3-bedroom, 27 4-bedroom and 13 5-bedroom. Most houses are 2 storeys high and a few 3 storeys. All are individual houses except for some houses with two or four 1-bedroom apartments (no larger apartments are planned).
Disappointingly, the application takes no notice of the suggestions by STRAG (supported by many of you) to approach the planning of the site as a whole and to take measures to spare the most valuable parts of the site by using higher densities in other parts. No plans are provided for the remainder of the site, and the proposed density of 37 dwellings per hectare in this phase 1 would probably not allow for any reduction of the spread of the development (if all 450 dwellings are eventually built).
The plans are accessible on Broxtowe Borough Council Website under ref. 15/00841/REM
The Planning and Design Statement is a good point to start.
The public consultation is now open and comments can be submitted up to 25 January.
Please give special attention to ecological impact and mitigation measures, flood control, traffic and social cohesion issues. Refer as far as possible to relevant documents such as the National Planning Policy Framework and the Greater Nottingham Aligned Core Strategy, which have requirements in terms of environmental impact and quality of design: while the developers quotes some, compliance may not resist detailed scrutiny! The Council needs solid legal arguments to refuse permission or require substantial modifications.

Gerry Hargreaves has a background of electrical installation and maintenance followed by considerable experience of energy monitoring providing technical support to the marketing division of East Midlands Electricity.
Projects throughout the UKhave included energy monitoring and data/billing analysis to assist companies to improve efficient use of energy. This has included disputes with electricity suppliers and distributors and site surveys, installation of temporary monitoring equipment and recommendations to install suitable power factor correction equipment. Site surveys for the installation of a M&T at major sites, have been undertaken and with the recent advances in remote monitoring technologies surveys and installation of GSM smart meters have been undertaken at distribution centres of a leading logistics company. A request by a leading UKenergy supplier has resulted in the installation of remote data collection technology, including planning and installation of remote data logging equipment to monitor and analyse usage data from geothermal sites within theUK. This work is ongoing in the development of renewable energy and low carbon technology.
Site visits and travel are significant reduced with the application of t-mac technology.
