Hi all

A warm welcome to my February newsletter and a special welcome to all those who have joined so far during 2017.

It certainly is a challenge to continue to remain optimistic about politics and political engagement in the light of so much distrust generally in politicians and so much uncertainty about the future.

I continue to remain upbeat however.  My diary is full with plenty of opportunities for positive involvement with local individuals & communities in Broxtowe and the surrounding areas.

Also in a wider sense – politics is never still for long!  There are important County Council elections locally in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leics, Lincs etc on Thursday 4 May 2017, together with elections for councils in Scotland and Wales as well as elections for the newly created English Regional Mayors.  In respect of the Regional Mayors these elections are taking place in several places throughout England including; the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire & Peterborough and Greater Manchester.  These newly established Mayors will lead combined authorities set up by groups of local councils, as part of devolution deals giving the combined authorities additional powers and funding.

As ever there is a lot to get through locally so straight down to business.

If you have feedback on any issue or require assistance with personal casework, please give me a shout.

Best regards

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – February 2017

1)  Coop – Maws Lane, Kimberley

Last Wednesday 22 February I met with the Area Manager for the Coop Mr Phil Haines at the new store on Maws Lane.  We discussed a number of issues that have been raised with me during the last few weeks.

My overall impression of the Coop is that it is a well maintained and tidy store offering a wide range of products, with approachable staff.

In terms of the previous burglaries and bouts of anti social behaviour the Coop are now confident that there are measures in place to reduce such occurrences again – such as CCTV & the presence of a security guard.

With regards to the traffic issues in and around Cornfield Road, Kimberley – over the vehicle entrance to the store then I understand that the Coop are arranging for some new white line traffic markings.

With regards to parking of cars opposite the entrance to the store then the Coop have asked me to investigate whether double yellow lines could be implemented along a stretch of Cornfield Road.

I would very much value feedback from you on this as to whether you think this is a positive step forward.  Whilst I have already asked the County Council about this some weeks ago (and they declined), if there is a strong feeling in favour of such action I am happy to raise this again.

Whilst I was meeting with the Coop I did see two cars parked directly opposite the entrance that would have to park elsewhere should double yellow lines be introduced.

If there is a genuine consensus on any suggestions for change around here I am happy to work on these.

If you have any other ideas for improvements you would like to see (however big or small) I would very much like to hear from you.

2)  Ilkeston railway station opening

As I reported last month this is due to take place on Sunday 2 April 2017.

I’ve had a number of requests for timetables and if I haven’t got back to everyone yet, please accept my apologies.

I did get in contact with Michael Webb, Head of Train Planning & Access at East Midlands Trains & whilst there are not yet
any consolidated timetable showing both East Midlands Trains (EMT) and Northern services, provisional information can be found at the following link:


I have also been asked about the car parking provisions and the confirmation that I have received is that the car park will operate on a pay and display basis.


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

Important work is carrying on with ongoing discussions at various levels concerning progressing the tram extension from Phoenix Park.  This is despite a rash and ill-advised statement from the Conservatives at the Nottinghamshire County Council Budget meeting last Thursday 23 February “under a Conservative administration at County Hall from May this year there will be no more tram extensions”.  It’s not their call.

Yesterday I received a hard copy of Eastwood Town Council’s Neighbourhood Plan consultation containing their thoughts on the route the tram would go through Eastwood, the details can be found within the link below:

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

On a slightly different track (pardon the pun), but still related to the general tram & public transport connectivity, my colleague and friend from Amber Valley Cllr Paul Jones and I have written a joint submission to the Eastwood & Kimberley Advertiser and Ripley & Heanor newspapers outlining our thoughts.  The text of our submission is as follows:

“We all welcome the proposed opening on Sunday 2 April 2017 Ilkeston Railway station after many years of local campaigning by residents and a wide range of other organisations. However, as local representatives of the Kimberley, Heanor and Langley Mill areas we  are aware road traffic congestion in Derby and Nottingham is growing rapidly and a recent item in the Nottingham Post  identified a very well-known local hot spot for traffic hold ups being the A610 affecting thousands of us locally.  Whilst of course in itself trains running to and from Ilkeston will not overnight reduce traffic local congestion, making public transport more accessible is a massive step forward and provides a great sustainable investment model for the future.

As a strong supporter of public transport and a regular user of rail services we hugely welcome the new station at Ilkeston. Though you do not have to be a frequent rail traveller to realise the huge long term benefits this will bring.

And it’s the future which is really important as plans are developed during the next sixteen years for the Hs2 station at nearby Toton and also the Tram extension from Phoenix Park in Nottingham out to Kimberley, Eastwood & eventually into Amber Valley.

However the new station at Ilkeston should not jeopardise train services running to and from Langley Mill station.

Furthermore we both strongly contend that the station at Langley Mill which is very well used by residents in Heanor, Langley Mill, Loscoe, Codnor & Eastwood for example should benefit from modernisation and investment in the near future.

It’s extremely difficult for disabled passengers on south bound trains to exit  the station due to the steps.  Indeed on occasion passengers  have had to go to  Nottingham and get on a train to return to Langley Mill  this situation needs resolving as a matter of urgency. We note that  the MP for Amber Valley in recent literature sated that he continued to support improvements for Alfreton we feel he should do the same for Langley Mill as well as supporting us  to also urge the respective train operating companies to look at the possibility of increasing the number of trains that stop at Langley Mill.

According to the train operators own figures between 2011/12 and 2015/16 passenger numbers have risen from 93858 and 115686 a 23% increase.We must build on this and ensure that the community served Langley Mill train station is not forgotten.This also includes improving the car parking for those using the service and relieving the issues on and around Milnhay Road When the Station was re opened ion  March 1985 it was due to the support of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire County Council’s ,Amber Valley District Council, as it then was and the Town and Parish Council’s of Aldercar and Langley Mill;, Brinsley, Denby , Eastwood and Heanor and Loscoe . By working together I am sure we can ensure the Station has a bright future.So young or old, car owner or not, commuter or retired, better local public transport is a win-win for us all.

Let’s celebrate the investment and make good use of the new trains to and from Ilkeston, whilst we urge those responsible to ensure that Langley Mill is not neglected!”


4)   Stapleford & Trowell Rural Action Group (STRAG)

I have been alerted to the statement that STRAG made on 20 February 2017 regarding the development of Field Farm.

The full details are shown below:

Appeal Ref: APP/J3015/W/16/3154282

“We are very disappointed and saddened with the outcome of the Inspector’s Report regarding Phase 1of the development for 118 houses on Field Farm.

The Inspector’s report focussed on the ‘urban’ character of the site. We feel that this is in contradiction of the fact that it was Green Belt land and that we, the body that has fought to prevent development on the site are known as Stapleford and Trowell Rural Action Group. This is not the development that was wanted by local residents, Stapleford Town Council or Broxtowe Borough Council.

The fact that the Government have overridden the view of a Local Authority is somewhat worrying. Broxtowe Borough Council were not saying ‘do not build’. They were hoping and asking that the quality of build, responsibility and duty of care needed from the Developer should do justice to the sensitive nature of the site. Unfortunately the Developer has ignored them. Now that the Inspector has overruled the authority on all these issues, it sets a very worrying standard and basically means that our Council has no more than ‘meaningless control’ over builders once outline planning permission has been granted.

It is very much apparent that the Council had its hands bound by the wrong decisions made by the previous Council on the Broxtowe Aligned Core Strategy (BACS) and the outline planning permission. There have been so many mistakes made at the time of the BACS negotiations, lost opportunities and lack of ambition of national and regional spatial development policy. This once again proves that housing provision in this country is developer-led and not planner-led and that ecological issues are quite blatantly ignored.

We had hoped that the whole site could have been taken into consideration from the onset so that a compromise could have been achieved. Ideally, this would have safeguarded some of the valuable countryside particularly the area north east beyond the ridge and plantation and at the back of Stapleford Hill, so precious for the wellbeing of local residents and visitors to the area. It now seems that developer-led piecemeal proposals could in time ruin this as well.

STRAG will continue to monitor future proposals for further phases of development on this site. We urge everyone who cares to continue to keep a close eye on proceedings and to offer their support to us for the benefit of us all”

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

(£25,000 County Council plans for Maws Lane Junction)

I have covered this matter and related topics in copious detail in previous newsletters.  This coming Thursday 2 March I have a further site meeting with the County Council & local residents to see whether some informal resolution and breakthrough can be achieved on the current impasse regarding Maws Lane.

I understand a formal complaint has been made to the Local Government Ombudsman already about this case.  This does not prevent however a locally agreeable solution still being reached by all parties involved.

If anyone has any questions please let me know.

Incidentally all previous newsletters going back to 2007 can be found at: http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/work-in-broxtowe/


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

On a hopefully positive note there appears now to be a locally negotiated settlement on this matter.  On Friday 17 February 2017 I met with County Council officials and local residents to discuss the work that the County Council are scheduled to take.   Originally this was causing some distress because of the detrimental impact on a nearby property.

I’m pleased to report that it looks as though some concessions are being made by the County Council now which satisfy all parties involved.

Any questions, please get in touch.

7)  Dog pooh bins Awsworth & Cossall

These have been installed in a couple of locations now, and the local feedback I have had is overall positive, once some adjustments had been made.

Please contact me for any further questions on this.

8)  How do we build a politics that champions the cause of the working class?

I’m really quite excited about this event, taking place at Nottingham Trent University this coming Saturday 4 March.

It’s free admission – with a very high quality array of speakers: Rafael Behr, Lord Maurice Glasman, Ruth Davis, Rowenna Davis, Neil Turnbull, Paul Embery, Gloria De Piero MP, Dr Steve Jones & Revd Canon Barbara Holbrook.

Reserve your ticket at:



9)   Cinema proposals Giltbrook Retail Park (GRP)


I am due to visit another retail park elsewhere in the East Midlands during March to try and gain a different perspective on how a cinema operation may work at Giltbrook.  I discussed this with the owners of GRP last year.  I will then report back to the owners of GRP with my findings.

If anyone has any questions please get in touch.

When there is more substantive news I will let you know.
