Hi all

A warm welcome to the April edition and especially to those who have joined during the past few weeks. 

This newsletter is somewhat different to the usual editions.  There are only 3 items – as I concentrate (in the main) on the local elections throughout Broxtowe – on Thursday this week – 2 May.  These local elections are arguably both the most exciting and important to take place for over a decade and I will explain the reasons why I believe this to be so below.

I do also want to touch on the Horse Fair that took place in Nuthall last week – and inform you of the questions raised with me, explain the information I received and the subsequent actions I undertook.

Finally I have been asked by Kimberley Town Council to highlight two events (and these details are shown at item 3 below).

I’ll be back next month with my more usual type of community newsletter – well that’s providing of course I am successfully re-elected :) – and I will issue a results update on Friday this week – following the count.

I trust that you find the details below useful and stimulating.  Feedback as ever is welcome.

Best regards

Richard

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – April 2019 – (with focus on Thursday’s Local Elections)

 

1)   Horse Fair Nuthall

So on Tuesday last week I started to receive contact from local residents and landlords in an around Kimberley – asking what I knew about the Horse Fair coming to Nuthall (just by the side of J26 of the M1).  As I had received no information whatsoever from the council about this I started to try and make some detailed enquiries.

  • Last Wednesday 24 April I contacted the Deputy Chief Executive at Broxtowe Borough Council and the Police & Crime Commissioner for Nottinghamshire as to what the actual position was and trying to get some clarification.
  • I was advised that a Safety Advisory Group met on 23 April and confirmed that the Horse Fair could go ahead, having permission with the land owner.
  • A site meeting took place on 24 April with senior officers from Broxtowe Borough Council, the police and other bodies which discussed the issues surrounding the horse fair.
  • It appeared that there was some uncertainty about why an injunction could not be imposed (some had asked for this to be considered).  I was specifically advised that this could not happen as there had been no proven local track record in this area of anti social behaviour resulting from such an activity taking place.
  • The concerns raised with me from local people concentrated on the lack of notice given by the council for this to happen, why should up to 10,000 people be allow to descend on an area with barely a week’s notice?  Given the issues that had arisen in other locations – local residents and businesses appeared legitimately concerned about their well-being. 
  • I also met with the local pub watch group last week – comprising owners of pubs throughout Eastwood and Kimberley.  We discussed a wide range of issues.

Fast forward to today and the upshot of everything is that the Horse Fair actually happened successfully without the levels of criminal activity feared – based on previous similar events in different parts of the country. 

There are of course huge lessons to be learnt including communications, whether the Horse Fair is to come again (and on what status) – clarity on the legalities of any agreement that took place and so on.

I have got a further meeting with the pub watch team, police and Broxtowe Borough Council tomorrow to de-brief and to discuss a number of issues.  The next planned Horse Fair I am told is from 25 – 28 July (same location), and there are a number of specific points I will be raising.

I would in particular like to pay a huge tribute to Beat Manager and Sergeant Andy Browning at Nottinghamshire Police – who seemed to work day and night in order to successfully mobilise a very effective police operation.  He ‘phoned me every day from Thursday last until yesterday with updates.

Also to Sue Maxwell – the local pub watch coordinator for the Kimberley, Eastwood, Nuthall area who helped brilliantly with communications.

I will relay information I receive promptly in future newsletters.

 

2)   Broxtowe Borough elections – Thursday 2 May 2019

Onto the main focus on April’s newsletter, and the elections that are taking place throughout the borough of Broxtowe this Thursday.  Polling stations open at 7am and close at 10pm.

THE BOROUGH COUNCIL ELECTIONS IN KIMBERLEY

I have been a councillor on Broxtowe Borough Council continuously since May 1991, firstly representing Eastwood East.  In 2003 the boundaries changed and I have been a borough councillor in Kimberley ever since.  I was also County Councillor (Kimberley, Awsworth, Cossall and Trowell) between 1997 and 2005. 

On 27 February 2019 – after weeks of soul-searching, heartache (and tears) I made the decision to leave the Labour Party – my full statement is here below (many of you may have seen this already – but it’s probably worth a re-read) – it hopefully proves insightful:

My statement today on leaving the Labour Party.

A number of people have asked whether I am now in the same party as Anna Soubry?  The answer to this is no. 

I am not a member of any political party. 

I am standing as an Independent candidate – for Kimberley (just as Cllr Richard MacRae does successfully in Stapleford)  – and in case you have not seen my election leaflet it can be found by clicking on the following link: 65090 A4 4pp Councillor Leaflet 

There are nine candidates standing for 3 positions in Kimberley.  There are currently two Conservatives and myself currently representing Kimberley.

So what are my priorities on being successfully re-elected?

It is very important to state that I am here for you (and not the other way around). 

My election leaflet: 65090 A4 4pp Councillor Leaflet focuses largely on how we can build Kimberley together – looking at some of the key challenges.  I have taken copious feedback from talking with literally hundreds of local residents for some months now on the type of things they want to see improve in Kimberley.  To list some of these briefly they are:

  • Making sure Kimberley gets its fair share of funding.  Many folk say that all the money in Broxtowe appears to go to Beeston.  I will work relentlessly hard on being successfully re-elected to addresses this matter, and campaign to ensure we get our fair share.
  • Address the significant traffic concerns in two key parts of Kimberley.  The traffic issues around Maws Lane, Hardy Street and then separately getting in and out of Swingate seem to be proliferating.  Many people appear extremely frustrated with the lack of initiative shown by the County Council after such significant work undertaken three years ago – see for example: http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2016/08/submission-to-nottinghamshire-council-regarding-suggested-highways-improvements-in-kimberley-swingate-and-maws-lane-areas/
  • http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2016/01/what-can-be-done-to-imrpove-traffic-flow-congestion-and-pedestrian-safety-in-hardy-streetmaws-lane-cliff-boulevard-swingate-areas-of-kimberley-initial-report/
  • With the Kimberley population growing we need to invest now  – we need to ensure our children gain access to good education and schools of their choice.
  • Creative solutions for local businesses are needed to attract investment and increase footfall – this would include lifting parking restrictions and increasing shop front grants.
  • Multiplicity of pavement and road surface problems – these stretch throughout the ward – from Glenfield Avenue, Truman Street and Maws Lane to Broxtowe Avenue, around Stocks Road through to areas in and around Swingate.
  • Transport issues for elderly people – I have talked to a number of people – especially around the Kimberley part of the Larkfield Road estate (ie Birch, Lime, Poplar etc) – a number of elderly folk there seem pretty isolated that I have spoken with and I want to see what opportunities there are to allow community transport initiatives in this area.
  • Making sure that community events that do take place in Kimberley benefit the whole of the community – I have encountered some disquiet amongst people when events have been arranged in the past – when they have tried to find out more about the funding arrangements – information has not always been forthcoming.  It’s very important that transparency is paramount in all community initiatives.
  • Tram extension from Phoenix Park – through to Kimberley, Eastwood & Langley Mill – see below for all of the comprehensive background information on this:

http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2015/02/tram-extension-line-4-phase-iii-to-kimberley-eastwood-into-amber-valley/
 

So what are the immediate priorities for the coming months?

  • By the end of May this year (next month) I have been advised that we should know whether or not the substantive reports submitted to East Midlands Councils for funding for the tram extension (see above) have been successful.  Naturally there will be a huge amount of work involved here should we be successful.
  • I want to establish a comprehensive list of road defect problems throughout the ward and get these submitted to the County Council.
  • I want to revisit the previous consultations done on Maws Lane One Way – and the suggestions to improve traffic in and out of Swingate and consult on a wider basis on these again before further submissions being made.
  • The footpath between Broomhill Road and Chapter Drive needs some serious attention, as does a broken fence near Cloverlands, together with the ongoing saga of the wall on Ruislip Close that needs to be reduced in height.

More longer term work will be looking at how we can comprehensively boost business in Kimberley – and look at health and schooling issues too.

So all in all a fair bit of homework after Thursday!

These elections I believe are so exciting party because the amount and scope that there is to really continue making a real difference in Kimberley is huge – things like the tram extension – comes around once in a life time.  If we miss opportunities to reduce traffic congestion, boost jobs and investment – they undoubtedly won’t come back again and will be snapped up by another area.

I think as well with Brexit being so divisive – there is now genuine scope for something new, brave and bold to emerge in politics – I genuinely believe in Kimberley we can be at the forefront of that change.  

What can I improve on?

I am a vastly experienced councillor with over 25 years experience.  That does not make me a know it all, neither does it mean I always get everything right.  Improvements can be made!  For example I’ve had some great sessions in the Miners Return recently on Eastwood Road, talking about politics, and trying to put Kimberley (as well as the rest of the world) to rights.  The feedback I have had from there – is that whilst for example my monthly email newsletters are good – and go out to around 1100 people in Kimberley – I should be more visible in the pubs etc, getting feedback from folk who don’t get email (or alternatively don’t read them).

This is a fair criticism – I’ve probably relied to heavily on email consultation and on being successfully re-elected I will be holding regular 6 weekly “Have your Say” sessions throughout all the pubs in Kimberley – talking about developments – and finding out the local moans, groans and problems.   I’ll also be issuing hard copy newsletters too, and I have recently met a businesswoman who lives on Maws Lane Kimberley (launching her new Print Company), whom I will be using – see Community business section below.

I could go on for ages as I am passionate about Kimberley, our people and wellbeing.

I do hope you go out to vote.  It’s your right to have your say.  

I’ve heard it said recently that Broxtowe Borough Council over the past few years has not always been the place to go to get problems resolved.  You might liken in to BBC Radio 3, voters are mainly glad its there, but are not necessarily inclined to tune into it themselves.  I hope that with a new council after Thursday this will change!

If you still have a postal vote that has not been sent back yet, you can hand it on Thursday at your polling station.

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.
