Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – January 2017


1)  Ilkeston railway station opening

This is due to take place on Sunday 2 April 2017.

If you would like advance details of train timetables operating to and from Ilkeston, please let me know.


Park & Ride site?

On a slightly different but related matter I have been approached to see what the possibility is of building a park and ride site with access from Coventry Lane in Bramcote which is adjacent to the railway line.  

Many of you will know that traffic along the main A609 Ilkeston to Nottingham Road and the A52 Derby-Nottingham road is very heavy in the mornings and late afternoons.

What has been put to me is that a park and ride site here would be convenient for residents of Wollaton, Trowell, Stapleford, Sandiacre etc as an alternative to driving into Nottingham. 

The details above are currently with Nottinghamshire County Council for their consideration.  When I receive further information I will let you know.


2) HS2

On 15 November 2016 an announcement was made on the preferred route for the proposed High Speed Two (HS2) railway from Crewe to Manchester and West Midlands to Leeds – known as Phase 2b.  This affects us here in Broxtowe and in particular Toton.

As part of this announcement, the Government launched two consultations on:

  • seven substantial changes being proposed to the route; and
  • the property compensation and assistance schemes being proposed for people affected by the plans.

The consultations will run until 9 March 2017.

If you click on the link below you will find the meeting tomorrow in Trowell on Friday 27 January 2017:


I have also included more information with a statement from myself regarding HS2 at the following link:

Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood & into Amber Valley


3)   Culling of trees on Door One (Hall om Wong Park), Kimberley

A number of people have been in touch, sent messages regarding a tree issue in Kimberley.

I have made some enquiries to get the actual position on behalf of the council – and the official response is here:

“In terms of Hall om Wong we need to do work to fell trees that are in a dangerous condition and that are close to properties. We also need to fell some trees that have outgrown their current positions and are now too big given their potential size and proximity to housing. There is also some work proposed as part of good woodland management to the copse areas which will allow in more light. There have been meetings on site with various interested groups where we listened to the various comments that were raised. The exact extent of the work has still to be finally agreed”.

If you need any more information please contact Tim Crawford – Tim.Crawford@broxtowe.gov.uk (please feel free to cc me into any correspondence you send).


4)   Stapleford Community Association (SCA) – Cliffe Hill Avenue

I have received representation from SCA regarding problems are experiencing in the endeavours to renew their lease next year.

I understand that the association has over 200 members, is well maintained and managed.  Historically Broxtowe Borough Council has made a regular grant to cover the rental charges.

The activities undertaken by the association centre around health, exercise, well being and social interaction.

I have contacted the Vice Chair and Trustee of the Management Committee Mr Robert Aldred and offered to meet him alongside Cllr Richard Macrae and Cllr John McGrath.

If anyone wants any more information please get in touch.


5) Maws Lane & Hardy Street & Swingate Traffic Improvements Kimberley – the County Council response

Far from this issue going away there is growing and increasing frustration with the attitude of the County Council.  It’s also getting rather complex.  I will try and summarise the key points below (if you do have any questions please get in touch).

  • I have raised a formal complaint with the County Council about their proposals and specifically highlighting a lack of attention to copious community consultation work undertaken in Kimberley last year.  I have received a response from the County Council this week 23 January – if you would like to see a copy of the response please let me know.
  • Yesterday I met with a resident living on Maws Lane who has done an excellent job and of his own volition, preparing Maws Lane traffic questionnaires.  He’s received 14 responses from local residents, which I will refer back to the County Council.
  • Anna Soubry MP for Broxtowe has also been involved.  She wrote formally to me about this in November and I telephoned her office at the beginning of December to offer support, and work with her.  I was promised a telephone call back – to date I have not a response.
  • I covered the matter of Maws Lane and Swingate in depth in September’s issue: http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2016/09/broxtowe-news-update-information-service-september-2016/

The latest County Council proposal I have received today is as follows: EPSON023


Clearly there appears to be growing public dissatisfaction with the way the County Council have responded.  Feedback that I have received range from “the County Council have clearly missed the point in both traffic hotspot areas”, “£25,000 is a lot of money to spend on one scheme that will not rectify anything in the long term”, “nothing that the County Council is proposing to do will benefit the majority of residents in Kimberley”.  “It ignores totally traffic problems on Cliff Boulevard”.

The most poignant comments I have received from residents is “it all smacks of a fob off”.

There are lots of questions left unanswered – here’s just a few: – a dangerous corner on Greens Lane – some sensible suggestions for improvement from local residents – ignored (Swingate).

A petition presented by 100 local residents – ignored (Maws Lane).

The long standing issue of the bus stop on Eastwood Road that should be moved to prevent traffic queuing over the Maws Lane junction – ignored (Maws Lane).

I have made my views perfectly clear that spending a fraction of the £25,000 set to be made on moving two car parking spaces on Eastwood Road, would have far greater value if it was put into a proper long term study for comprehensive traffic improvements for a much wider area of Kimberley.

These proposals (set to cost £25k) include drawing a new kerb line, extending the footway, installing low level bollards (to physically prevent vehicles parking on a widened footway).

Because of the loss of car parking spaces on Eastwood Road the County Council are further proposing burning off some of the double yellow lines on Awsworth Lane (which I am sure residents there will be very happy about)!  This is subject to funding agreement for the next financial year (2017/18).

The County Council argue that there have been four identical injury collisions and therefore cannot ignore them.  My response is that they shouldn’t.  What they should do instead is seriously examine all of the work that I undertook with local residents over the past year – and look seriously at your suggestions for improvements (after all it is local people who use these roads every day in Swingate and Maws Lane/Hardy Street) and witness the everyday problems.

Recently I was driving down Maws Lane (the narrow stretch with cars parking on one side) – a car came at a good pace up the hill towards me (so I had to mount the pavement) in order to avoid a collision.  If a pedestrian would have been around on the pavement goodness knows what would have happened.

Those of you who live on Maws Lane tell me of many similar experiences they have had.

Spending £25,000 removing two car parking spaces will not stop this.

If you would like to send comments to the County Council (by 13 February 2017) you can contact:

6)   Hama Medical Centre, Kimberley – Prohibition of Waiting & No Loading Restrictions, Traffic Regulation Order 2016 (5225) 

I have also raised a formal complaint with the County Council following representations made by local residents in the vicinity close to the Medical Centre.  This concerns the proposals by the County Council (and lack of appropriate consultation) for a Traffic Regulation Order for Nottingham Road Kimberley, restricting parking close to the Hama Medical Centre.

I am currently awaiting a response, and when there is more information I will let you know.


7)  Dog pooh bins Awsworth & Cossall

I was contacted recently regarding requests for extra dog pooh bins in Awsworth & Cossall.  I contacted Broxtowe Borough Council and some new bins are now due to be installed during the next eight weeks on Newtons Lane Cossall, and also on the junction of Westby Lane, Awsworth.

If anyone wants any more information please let me know.

8)  Parents and Carers Group – Kimberley – Rumbletums

This groups is for anyone who is the parent or carer of a child, young person or young adult with any sort of learning disability.  It’s a self-help and networking group at which parents and carers share their own experiences, raise issues that might be pertinent to them and to others and share information on a range of subjects. There is no charge to attend.

The group meets on the last Wednesday of every month, so the next meeting is on 22 February, from 10am to 1130am at Rumbletums.

More information available from Jeff Buck: jeffmich2016@outlook.com


9)  Coop, Maws Lane, Kimberley

A number of people have been in touch concerning problems with the new Coop on Maws Lane.  These range from difficulties with lorries reversing into the site causing traffic congestion & increased drinking and anti-social behaviour nearby.

I have contacted the Coop and am currently awaiting a response.

If anyone has experienced any particular problems here I would be grateful if you could let me know about these.

I was also asked whether the County Council could put double yellow lines along the stretch adjacent to the flats (Alma Hill, Cornfield Road) as the constant parking on Cornfield Road creates a hazard for traffic coming out of the CO OP and traffic going on and off the estate.  I contacted the County Council and their response was negative.

In addition I was asked about resurfacing the carriageway on Alma Hill and Branklene Close.  Here the County Council said that they would arrange for inspection and any safety defects noted during the inspection will be repaired in due course and carriageway will continue to be monitored via the routine annual inspections.  Fore more information on this please contact:

10)   Waste bin – Hardy Street, Kimberley

I was contacted several weeks ago about the removal of the rubbish/waste bin at the top of Hardy Street.  The history to this as I understand it is that the old post mounted litter bin at the bus stop was removed two years ago as it was fixed to the bus companies post which Broxtowe BC is no longer permitted to do.
Broxtowe BC received a request to install another litter bin on Hardy Street/Cliff Boulevard and had one installed outside the corner of number 10 Cliff Boulevard.
However Broxtowe BC were then contacted with a request that the bin be removed as the fire brigade had informed a local resident that it was a fire hazard to the specific property so the Refuse Manager removed the bin.

I have now been informed that the council are looking at relocating the bin across the road now on the triangular piece of grass adjacent to the footway to Alma Hill.

If anyone has any questions, comments please contact Nigel.Keeling@broxtowe.gov.uk (please feel free to cc me in).


11)   Swingate, Greens Lane traffic congestion – January 2017

I received multiple messages on two separate occasions regarding traffic chaos in Kimberley.   I contacted the County Council and the response I received is shown below.  If you have any comments, please let me know.

“All roadworks unfortunately cause traffic congestion and delays especially at peak times, the works undertaken by National Grid where to repair an emergency gas leak and the VIA network coordination team where informed by a retrospective notice by National Grid, they had to attend site immediately to repair the leak so we not informed until the works were actually in progress which utility companies are allowed to do in the case of emergencies

National Grid were on site early mornings and late at night to repair the leak and the co-ordination team requested if possible could the work be completed and the traffic lights removed before the weekend to avoid any unnecessary disruption which did happen

Temporary traffic signals should always be controlled by vehicle actuation ( VA) , this reduces delay to vehicles by ensuring that the green time is adjusted automatically . I drove through these lights a few times myself during peak periods and to be honest the only time I witnessed excessive tail bakes into Swingate was during the school run which was to be expected . There is only one enquiry on record for these works and that was asking why the works were being undertaken which was as mentioned an emergency gas leak

I have attached a link below to the corporate complaints process at Nottinghamshire County Council that explains the process the detail however in the first instance most highway related corporate complaints come directly to me to respond on.

12)  What is happening with Aldi in Stapleford?

A number of people have been in touch about this following various pieces of information released during the past few weeks.

I have sought specific advice from the Planning Department at Broxtowe and the information I have received is shown here:

“Last year a hybrid application seeking full approval for the Aldi store and outline approval for 10 dwellings went to the planning committee.   The officer recommendation was to approve the residential element and to refuse the retail element due to the impact on the vitality of Stapleford Town Centre.  The committee members however took a different view to the officer’s recommendation and considered that, the public and economic implications for Stapleford of having the store in this location, would be beneficial and, contrary to officer advice, would not have a significant impact on the vitality and viability of Stapleford Town Centre.


The loss of housing land and the delivery of the ten dwellings on the site however, was seen as an important issue to the committee members, particularly as the site had a previous permission for 50 dwellings.  The residential element was for outline approval for a site that could accommodate 10 dwellings which amounts to a reduction of 40 dwellings compared to the previously proposed redevelopment of the site.  This has a significant impact on meeting the Council’s housing targets and avoiding the need of building on Green Belt and greenfield sites which is contrary to the aims of the NPPF and the Aligned Core Strategy.  As delivery of planning approvals for housing is a key issue for the Borough it was seen as necessary by the committee members when allowing the retail store, to attach condition 3 on the approval which, was worded as such, to ensure that the dwellings were completed prior to the opening of the store. 

In January of this year the committee members were faced with an application which proposed to remove condition 3 to allow the retail store to be opened prior to the completion of the housing.  Over 100 public responses supporting Aldi’s proposal to remove this condition was received.  However, after much debate and consideration the committee resolved to stand by their previous decision and to retain condition 3, therefore refusing the application to remove this condition as the delivery of the housing was still seen as a pertinent issue that could be achieved together with the retail store in this location.

13)   Suggested recommended reading (current national issues)

This is a fairly new item I introduced where I’ll post links to some of the best reads I’ve come across on a range issues recently.  Hope you find them stimulating.  This does not mean to say I necessarily endorse everything within them, but they are interesting.  Thanks to all of you who have written in saying how much this item is appreciated.

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.
