Broxtowe News Update & Information Service (with special Brexit questionnaire) – November 2018

Hi all

A warm welcome to my November newsletter and especially those who have joined recently.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all well for the forthcoming Christmas season.

Thank you to everyone who has been in touch over the past few weeks.

As ever there’s lots of news to catch up on, so straight down to business.  Can I especially draw your attention to a special designed Brexit survey I have designed, and I would really appreciate it if you could spend a couple of minutes to complete (item 1).

I trust you find the information below provided both stimulating and useful.

As ever, if you have any feedback, comments, any issue you would like to raise or need help with personal casework, please get in touch.

Best regards

Richard

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – November 2018

1)   Brexit Survey

Yes, that B word.  Many of you I appreciate maybe frustrated, confused or simply turn off when ever the subject of Brexit is mentioned.

However the vote that will be taken by MPs in the House of Commons on 11 December on the government’s final Brexit deal, will be of huge significance for the whole of the UK for generations to come.

I am very keen to know your actual views on where we are now, and I’ve devised a special poll which I would really appreciate it if you would participate in.  All of responses are of course anonymous.  Simply click on the link below (I have thrown in a few other general political questions as well if you would not mind answering them too):

http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/work-in-broxtowe/brexit-questionnaire-novembe

I do appreciate your time in this.  The results I am sure will be fascinating – and I will publicise the results during 2019.

2)   Tram Extension – Line 4 phase iii to Kimberley, Eastwood & Langley Mill Super Hub

 

Lots of positive work continues behind the scenes.  I’ve updated the campaign log to show the latest details here below, for any questions, please do get in touch.

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

3)   Kimberley Lights Switch on

Is taking place this coming Friday 30 November, commencing at 6pm with carol singing at Holy Trinity Church.

Other features include a tea light parade up to Toll Bar Square at 6 30pm, a town crier welcome at 6 50pm followed by speeches by the Chair of Kimberley Town Council and the Mayor of Broxtowe.  After this there will be various activities with carol singing led by some of the schools in Kimberley and a firework display at 8pm.

 

4)  Capital grants available from Nottinghamshire County Council

Applications for capital grants of up to £50,000 to enhance local communities are now being accepted under the County Council’s Local Improvement Scheme (LIS).
 
You may have an idea about a project that could really benefit a local area, and it’s possible that financial support could be made available through the LIS.
 
Please note that applications should be submitted by 28 February 2019 – and more information is available at:

http://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/finance-and-budget/local-improvement-scheme/capital-fund

 

5)  Wall demolition – Ruislip Close, & Nine Corners Zebra Crossing – Kimberley

I have mentioned both of these issues plenty of times in previous newsletters during 2018 – see http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/work-in-broxtowe/

There has been impasse with the County Council for a number of months, and on 1 November I met with Gary Wood a senior manager within Nottinghamshire County Council at County Hall.  I expressed my specific concerns about how both matters remain unresolved and my strong dissatisfaction on behalf of Kimberley residents concerning the discrepancies with the County Council’s approach.

I have been promised a full and proper response, however nothing has materialised to date.

When there is more information I will let you know.

 

6)   Broxtowe Borough Council Email service

I have been asked by the Corporate Communications Team at Broxtowe Borough Council to promote their “E mail Me Service”.

I understand that over 17,000 residents currently subscribe to this service, which basically allows you to sign up to receive email updates on topics of your choice.

Topics are varied – ranging from business updates, latest news, events, waste and recycling for example, and it’s another way to keep up to date with what’s going on in and around Broxtowe.
 
The Council has also recently responded to user feedback about topics they would like to receive information about by introducing a new Public Protection topic to provide seasonal advice on community safety, food hygiene and using taxis.
 
You can sign up today at http://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/emailme
 
You will only receive information about the topics you select to receive emails about and you can subscribe easily at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of every email bulletin.

7)   Giltbrook Care Home (GCH)
 
I have visited this establishment on a number of occasions this year and I am very impressed at the way the staff, management and a small band of volunteers serve all of the residents at the home.  It is a joy to visit and there is a fabulous sense of community eminent throughout all the work that is undertaken.   I last visited on Friday 9 November.
More general information on the type of care delivered by staff at the home can be found at the following link:
 
The home is also on the look out for volunteers that can go in and spend an hour chatting with some of the residents – more information available by contacting Jessica Holmes – jessica.giltbrook@gmail.com
 
8)  Bus Services affecting Smithurst Road Estate, Giltbrook
 
I have been asked to raise the issue of lack of bus services in the above area.
In previous years a Y10 bus ran roughly ever hour towards Eastwood in one direction, and to Kimberley, Nottingham and the QMC in the other.
 
This service has been currently cut back, and on a large and growing estate, causes considerable difficulties especially for elderly people who rely on public transport to get out and about.
 
Two residents in particular have got in touch with me very concerned about this, and they have put a good amount of work in to try and raise the problems thus far, with petitions etc.
 
Approaches to Trent Barton thus far have proved inconclusive.
 
I’ve been asked to see whether this matter can be drawn to the attention of a wider audience.
 
If you live in and around this area and are affected, please do get in touch.
 

 

9)  Rumbletums Cafe and Training Project – Victoria Street, Kimberley

Since 2011 Rumbletums was set up to offer vocational training and work experience placements to young people and young adults (16-30) with learning disabilities.

As well as this, it has become a community hub in Kimberley and also offers a parent and toddler group, a Silver Screen film night for older people, regular social events for young people with disabilities and subsidised room hire space for local voluntary organisations and community groups.

For the last 7 years, Rumbletums has rented its premises at a discounted rent, but now the landlords want to sell the building within the next year… at a cost of £200,000. Rumbletums is therefore faced with having to buy the premises, move out or wind up the project.

Therefore, Rumbletums is going to try to raise £200,000 to buy the building in order to continue – and expand – the project.

If you would like to support Rumbletums in an way please see: https://www.gofundme.com/rumbletums-cafe

 
10)  Voter ID pilot, Broxtowe Borough Council elections Thursday 2 May 2019 (very important information)
Broxtowe Borough Council has been confirmed as one of the voter ID pilot authorities for the elections next May.  There will be piloting the mixed model which will require voters to produce photographic ID or 2 pieces of non-photographic ID at polling stations before they can vote.  The types of ID, both photographic and non-photographic, which will be accepted have still to be agreed. 
 
When there is more information I will let you know.

11)  Suggested interesting reading

Some of the most interesting items I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is said, but they do provoke some thought and discussion:

  1. To understand how Brexit will pan out – look out for the number seven, & whilst the UK has consented to the sale of its family home, we’ve no idea what our new flat will resemble: https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/uk/2018/11/forget-tory-psychodrama-real-crisis-threat-no-deal-brexit
  2. Angry England, why tackling poverty is a choice & the significance of national renewal to help reconcile a divided nation: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/nov/22/angry-england-desires-change-inequality-brussels-bet365-denise-coates

Admin getting you down? Too much paperwork, too many emails? Not enough time?

Need some support?

Running a business is hard work. It can be difficult keeping up with everything while you’re out there, doing what you do best.

If you need someone to lighten the load but don’t want or need an employee, outsourcing a freelance PA could be the solution.

I can help with event planning, office re-ordering, minute taking, proofreading, document preparation, personal and company correspondence, ad hoc projects, etc – either remotely or in your premises.

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – October 2018

1) Tram Extension – Line 4 phase iii to Kimberley, Eastwood & Langley Mill Super Hub

 Can the tram come towards Kimberley by 2023?

The last 4-5 weeks have been some of the busiest and I believe most productive times thus far in the nine year campaign to bring the tram out to Kimberley and beyond.

I’ve summarised the key information at the link immediately below (click on the link), but will expand briefly here on some of the most notable points:

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

 

a) Earlier this month I received an unsolicited approach from Adrian Jones, an independent rail consultant & professional railway engineer who lives locally and has worked on rail projects throughout the world.  I duly met Adrian and he has produced some thoughts on above tram extension – shown in detail through clicking on the above link.  Most notable is his contention that there should be a partial completion of the total route out to Langley Mill – going towards Kimberley by 2023.  This is altogether a brave, challenging and very exciting concept that I and others will be grappling with over the next few weeks and months, to see how exactly this could be implemented.

b) I have a further meeting with a major store on the Giltbrook Retail Park next week to discuss the tram extension, as they have particularly expressed an interest in this scheme as beneficial to their members of staff (co-workers), who currently struggle to get to the store because of traffic congestion.

c) On 11 October a group of individuals (see photo in above link) met in Kimberley to discuss how we could regenerate the local area – especially around Kimberley, Eastwood, Langley Mill – looking at ways of boosting jobs, improving public transport, bringing growth and investment to the area, as well as cutting pollution.  Our session was skilfully chaired by Rev Canon Barbara Holbrook.  Where between the councillors there were differences, we disagreed with a very good nature, with respect for one another’s opinion – irrespective of what political party badge worn.  Everyone came together to work for the people of Broxtowe and the surrounding areas.

You might not think a group of individuals coming together in this way is any way special.   Politics, be it at national and (increasingly) at local level – I no doubt do not need elaborate, is very divisive and spiteful with often little collaboration or respect shown between different political parties and individual councillors or MPs.

A perfectly good idea advocated by one political party is often rubbished by the other side, simply on partisan grounds.

This may well raise some eyebrows, and I will get criticised in some quarters, however I would like to publicly acknowledge the work in the community done in Broxtowe by three Conservative Councillors: Cllrs Margaret & John Handley & Lydia Ball.  You will also see their photo in the link above, and all three made excellent suggestions on how we could make the case for the tram extension out through Kimberley and beyond stronger and how we help foster economic regeneration in the north of Broxtowe.  In particular Margaret has made the case for better connected bus services with a new tram and rail interchange/super hub.

 

d) I met with Conservative County Councillor for Greater Heanor Alex Stevenson on Friday 26 October in Langley Mill to talk through the case for a Super Hub at Langley Mill, and get his views on how we can work collaboratively together.  We had an excellent session – Alex is very conscientious and well connected and we are looking to engage with other community groups and Nigel Mills – MP for Amber Valley on the proposals.

 

e) On Friday 2 November this week – Gloria De Piero (MP for Ashfield), Cllr Alex Norris (MP for Nottingham North), Andy Cooper and myself have a session with Cllr Jon Collins – Labour Leader Nottingham City Council – to understand how we can make further tangible progress on the tram extension and economic regeneration along the A610 corridor.

 

Footnote – from what I have written in part above, does it mean that I am about to change my political allegiance?  No.

What we are trying to do is create locally a more mature politics where politicians of different parties are able to work constructively together for the benefit of residents in Broxtowe, Ashfield, Amber Valley & the surrounding areas.

 

2)   2nd Kimberley Scout Group Bonfire & Firework Display

This takes place this coming Saturday 3 November 2018 at Kettlebrook Lodge, Eastwood Road, Kimberley.

The bonfire will be lit at 7pm, with hot food and a licensed bar and disco until 10pm.

Admission £3.00, children £1.50 and under 2’s free.

You can pay on the door – and this is a charity fundraiser on behalf of the scout group.

 

3)  Wall demolition – Ruislip Close, & Nine Corners Zebra Crossing – Kimberley

I have mentioned both of these issues plenty of times in previous newsletters during 2018 – see http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/work-in-broxtowe/

There appeared to be an impasse with the County Council, however I am pleased to report that I have a meeting with them tomorrow to discuss both issues.  I’ll update you further in November’s newsletter on the outcomes of both matters.

 

 

4)   Potential data breach on behalf of Nottinghamshire Council County Council by VIA EM

On 8 August 2018 I sought initial advice from the Information Commissioners Office on the way that VIA EM (on behalf of the County Council) had shared to another person, personal information properly given to me regarding several constituents in Kimberley (without my permission, or the permission of the residents in question).

The County Council have now confirmed to me that they are now reviewing the way they share their data with Members.

 

 

 

5) Rumbletums Cafe and Training Project – Victoria Street, Kimberley

Since 2011 Rumbletums was set up to offer vocational training and work experience placements to young people and young adults (16-30) with learning disabilities.

As well as this, it has become a community hub in Kimberley and also offers a parent and toddler group, a Silver Screen film night for older people, regular social events for young people with disabilities and subsidised room hire space for local voluntary organisations and community groups.

For the last 7 years, Rumbletums has rented its premises at a discounted rent, but now the landlords want to sell the building within the next year… at a cost of £200,000. Rumbletums is therefore faced with having to buy the premises, move out or wind up the project.

Therefore, Rumbletums is going to try to raise £200,000 to buy the building in order to continue – and expand – the project.

If you would like to support Rumbletums in an way please see: https://www.gofundme.com/rumbletums-cafe

 

 

 

 6)   Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service – Draft Strategic Plan 2019-2022
You are invited to comments on the  Draft Strategic Plan for the next three years by completing a short but important questionnaire about the future of the Service.
The questionnaire should be completed by 21 December 2018.
 7)  Universal Credit (UC)

No doubt many of you will have seen some of the national headlines concerning UC during the past few weeks.  In the Broxtowe area it is estimated that throughout the borough there will be around 6100 families (including 9,700 children) claiming UC when the full roll out of the scheme is complete.  I’ve been given some background information on UC and if anyone experiences any problems or has questions with any aspect of UC please get in touch.

 

 

 8)   Broxtowe Borough Mediation Service

 

This service is temporarily unavailable and is unable to offer the mediation to residents, or take neighbour nuisance case referrals.

If you are approach by residents who have any kind of dispute with their neighbours, please advise them to contact the following teams:

The Tenancy & Estate Management team for disputes involving Council tenants, whether they are the complainant or the dispute is against a Council tenant, on 0115 917 3400 or email: hlps@broxtowe.gov.uk

The Communities team for disputes involving other households on 0115 917 7777 or email: spc@broxtowe.gov.uk

The Mediation Co-ordinator post will be recruited to shortly, but it is expected that it will be the New Year before the service is resumed.

If anyone has any further questions please let me know.
 9)  Broxtowe Borough Council Budget public consultation – 2019/20
If you would like to have a say on council budget priorities for the up and coming financial year – the current council are offering an opportunity for you to have your say on-line and also comment by viewing:

The deadline for responses is 30 November 2018.

 

 

 

 

10)  Sale of Beeston Town Hall

On Wednesday 17 October 2018 – at a Full Council meeting in Broxtowe a decision was made to sell the Town Hall to Cornerstone Church.  Whilst in an idea scenario, I would contend no public assets should be sold off, in this instance I supported in principle the proposals to allow the church to purchase the building.  From the evidence that I had seen they clearly sought to use the building to benefit the whole of the local community, and had a sound business and financial plan.

I received no representations from constituents in the north of the borough about this matter.

If anyone has any questions please let me know.

 

 

 

11)  Suggested interesting reading

Some of the most interesting items I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is said, but they do provoke some thought and discussion:

 

a)   If you deem filling potholes & big tax cuts for the better off are more important than education & tackling climate change for our children & grandchildren – then this budget is for you: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/oct/29/tory-budget-2018-nation-in-decline-brexit

b)  Come Friday this week when we’ve all forgotten about the Budget it’s worth reflecting on a public conversation we don’t have: British capitalism needs a root-and-branch makeover: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/oct/28/damn-philip-green-damn-the-culture-that-allowed-him-to-flourish-comment

c) More than 5,800 shops closed on British high streets in 2017, but in unfashionable Doncaster they’re really “doing the business”: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/oct/11/amazon-v-the-high-street-how-doncaster-is-fighting-back

d) Whatever your take on Brexit – National Populism looks set to Remain. How does the Left offer a convincing response?  https://www.newstatesman.com/2018/10/why-national-populism-here-stay#amp

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – September 2018

1)  Clean and Green Litterpick

Broxtowe Borough Council are organising a priority litter pick on Tuesday 18 September at Dovecote Lane Recreation Ground, Dovecote Lane, Beeston.  The event is at 1130am.

If you would like to nominate an area for a priority litter pick in a specific area in the north of the borough – ie Kimberley, Eastwood, Awsworth, Cossall – please let me know.

 

2) Millfield Road open space, Kimberley

Broxtowe Borough Council are planning some improvements on the park on Millfield Road.  In particular this will consist of a set of swings for older children in the grass area beyond the play area.  They also plan to extend the area slightly on the far side to include an item of equipment for toddlers. The rubber surfacing will be pressure jet washed to give it a fresh clean appearance.

The current indications are that this work should be completed by the late Autumn.

More information is available from Tim Crawford:-

Business and Projects Manager (Environment)
Broxtowe Borough Council
Deputy Chief Executives Department,
Kimberley Depot, Eastwood Road,
Kimberley,  Nottingham, NG16 2HX
Tel: 0115 917 3643 E: tim.crawford@broxtowe.gov.uk

 

3) Recycling stickers

 

During  the next two weeks, recycling stickers will be placed on residents’ recycling bins in Broxtowe.  The recycling sticker show what items can go in the recycling bin.   This will be the first step in a series of activities planned to reduce contamination.

The council will be informing residents that the stickers are being distributed using social media but will be doing wider publicity around the stickers and other recycling initiatives during the w/c 24 September, which is National Recycling Week.
An example of the sticker can be found by clicking on: 8689 Bin Sticker A5 landscape
More information is available from Paul Wolverson: paul.wolverson@broxtowe.gov.uk

 

  •  The next 3 issues concern complaints against Nottinghamshire County Council  *

4)  Wall demolition – Ruislip Close, Kimberley

I last reported in July – that the situation here is quite ridiculous – see item 8: http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2018/07/broxtowe-news-update-information-service-july-2018/

As a brief reminder as to the background to this – earlier this year I was asked by a number of residents living close to Ruislip Close whether a large wall can be demolished in one of car parks, with one of reasons being incidents of anti social behaviour that takes place behind it.  I duly made some enquiries at the moment to see what actually can be done about this, what consultation is needed, and what any costs would be.

From what I can understand from officials at Broxtowe one of the key issues there appeared to be a dispute about land ownership, which I was hoping would be clarified without lengthy delays.

There now seems an impasse with the County Council – who, having been passed the matter by Broxtowe, do not appear to want to engage.  I sent them a further reminder on 5 September, and am currently awaiting a response.

If there is no response by October, I will refer the case to the Local Government & Social Care Ombudsman.

 

5)   Potential data breach on behalf of Nottinghamshire Council County Council by VIA EM

On 8 August 2018 I sought initial advice from the Information Commissioners Office on the way that VIA EM (on behalf of the County Council) had shared to another person, personal information properly given to me regarding several constituents in Kimberley (without my permission, or the permission of the residents in question).

I am currently awaiting a response from the County Council on this matter, following questions I have asked of them.  This is a really important matter and has long term implications on the way that councillors refer matter to the County Council.

I am hoping that the County Council respond with the utmost clarity on how councillor referrals will be dealt with in future, without compromising the personal privacy and rights of individual constituents.

 

6)  Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

I have covered this matter on previous occasions and most recently item 7: http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2018/07/broxtowe-news-update-information-service-july-2018/

I contacted the County Council again last week, as I remain convinced that the County Council have not dealt with this request properly at all.  There is very important information from constituents in Kimberley that have not been satisfactorily addressed.

I am hoping to meet an officer of the County Council about this matter later this month.

I’ll come back with an update (hopefully) in October/November.

 

7)   Kimberley Workers Education Association

The history of Scotland to the Act of Union will be studied at a course open to all starting Tuesday 18 September, going through to 20 November 2018.  The venue is Rumbletums Café, Victoria Street, Kimberley – 315pm – 445pm.  Further details can be found by clicking on the image shown here:

WEA Scotland2

 

 

8)   Tram Extension – Line 4 phase iii to Kimberley, Eastwood & Amber Valley

Work continues behind the scenes on this exciting project with a group of volunteers currently working on detailed maps, routes, documents and consultation meetings with local parish councils, community groups.  We have further meetings set up with Nottingham City Council later today (and in November), and we are in discussions with some significant businesses and employers in the north of Broxtowe and just across the border Amber Valley.

A key part of our work now focuses on the concept of a transport Super Hub at Langley Mill – where the tram extended from Phoenix Park through Kimberley & Eastwood would terminate.  There would then be a fast link from Langley Mill through to the new Hs2 Hub Station in Toton, and options for electric buses from Langley Mill through Codnor to Ripley.

BBC East Midlands today covered this on Wednesday 16 May 2018 – and the whole piece from the 10 30pm news slot is shown here:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_WOCHha8y9KogIM0DbKg54f5Mwt_nJSN/view

Our key aim is to bring jobs, investment and growth to the north of Broxtowe and Amber Valley – especially – Kimberley, Awsworth, Eastwood, Langley Mill & Heanor – areas that are often left behind and forgotten about.  Reducing travel congestion is also critically important.  Our aim is not to replace any existing bus services, only to improve public transport and offer more choice to the public & reducing the need for car journeys.

More detailed information on some of the work undertaken so far over the past few years on the tram campaign can be found at:

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

If you would like to get involved in any way, please let me know.

 

 

 

 

 

9)   Trowell Ladies choir, poems and story telling, Trent Brass Quintet & more

This coming Saturday 15 September offers a treat at 2 30pm, Holy Trinity Church Hall, Kimberley – with a lovely afternoon of entertainment – please see the following link for more details: IMG_20180802_0001

 10)   Nottinghamshire County Council Adult Social Care Contributions Consultation
Currently Nottinghamshire County Council is considering a proposal which could affect the amount of contribution some people make towards their care and support.
The consultation close Closes 25 Sep 2018 and more information is available here:

11)   Maws Lane Kimberley

Two years ago, with the help of Kimberley residents I undertook a major study into two traffic, travel and pedestrian safety problem areas in Kimberley – the report was published here: http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2016/08/submission-to-nottinghamshire-council-regarding-suggested-highways-improvements-in-kimberley-swingate-and-maws-lane-areas/

I have now started to receive additional complaints from residents particularly in the Maws Lane, Kimberley area who continue to suffer problems.  I am meeting with residents currently with a view to seeing what exactly can be done to try and secure some proper long term solutions.

I’ll update further in future newsletters on what progress there is.

 

 

 

 

12)   Stapleford Neighbourhood Plan

If you wish to comment on the Stapleford Neighbourhood Plan – the details are shown here: Stapleford NP FINAL with correct map 6 August 2018

The period for consultation runs from 10 September 2018 till 19 October 2018

14)  Suggested interesting reading

Some of the most interesting items I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is said, but they do provoke some thought and discussion:

 

a) There really never was a “golden age” for the Welfare State, & what poverty really means:

https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/uk/2018/09/holiday-hunger-and-period-poverty-campaigns-risk-forgetting-what-poverty-really

 

b) A new majority politics starts with what people value: family, friendship, locality, community and country – it’s called the common good:

https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/uk/2018/08/politics-void-how-left-abandoned-patriotism-and-common-good

 

c) The audience that really matters in Brexit battle to come – the people who haven’t been paying attention:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/sep/11/remainers-voters-brexiters?CMP=share_btn_tw

 

d) Our Institutions No Longer Serve This New Era. The Public Understand, Why Haven’t We?

https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/lisa-nandy-21st-century-power_uk_5b900128e4b0162f472936fb

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – July 2018

Hi all

A warm welcome to my July newsletter and especially those who have joined recently.

Thank you to everyone who has been in touch over the past month.

My council workload continues to be extremely busy, there are lots of challenges, frustrations (especially with some significant delays in the County Council responding on certain issues) mentioned below – but I am pleased to say there’s some good proactive community initiatives too.

One observation I’ve made during the past few weeks is through talking to lots of people particularly in Kimberley over the past few weeks I am really impressed and struck by way people look out for one another where they live – a good spirit of neighbourliness – there are too many examples to mention – long may this continue!

I hope that you find this edition stimulating and useful.

I’m taking a break for a while in August, so the next newsletter (workload permitting) maybe in September – rather than in August.

However in the meantime and as ever, if you have any feedback, comments, any issue you would like to raise or need help with personal casework, please get in touch.

Best regards

Richard

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – July 2018

1)  Update on key regeneration sites throughout Broxtowe – from Beeston and Stapleford through to Cossall, Kimberley, Eastwood & Brinsley

I am often asked what is happening at the key sites throughout the borough (ie Beamlight Eastwood, Beeston Cement Depot, Cossall Industrial Estate, Kimberley Brewery (see also item 5 below), Boots Beeston & Moults Yard Stapleford.  Please see:

https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/media/4933/jobs-and-economy-committee-agenda-16-july-2018.pdf – pages 19-25.

For more detailed information on any of these sites please contact Steffan Saunders – Planning & Policy Manager – Broxtowe Borough Council – steffan.saunders@broxtowe.gov.uk

 

2)   Post Box Maws Lane, Kimberley

I reported last month that a number of residents had been in touch regarding the missing post box on Maws Lane – affecting people in the Beverley Drive and Stocks Road area Kimberley.  I made representations about this and duly received a letter from the Royal Mail Group (below) confirming they would address this issue.

On 6 July I started to receive messages from residents nearby to say that the post box had indeed returned.

Thank you to everyone who got in touch and I’m pleased to be able to report a successful outcome here.

3)   New business opening on James Street in Kimberley – Whitebeam photography

I am very pleased to say that an exciting new business in opening in Kimberley on Saturday 18 August.  The owner is Stacey Syson and the opening takes place on Saturday 18 August between 11am and 2pm.

There will be lots of activities including Chloe and Marley from MTV Teen Moms (I have to admit I had absolutely no idea who they were until Stacey mentioned them to me).  They will be coming to do photoshoot demonstrations and Mr Balloony will be doing balloon modelling.

In addition to this Candy Carts will be giving out free chocolate pizza plus free cakes and drinks.

There will be photoshoot experience offers and giveaways.

Local businesses are offering discount vouchers and merchandise.

Also there will be a tombola and all funds raised will go to the charity – Wish upon a Star.

Do visit on 18 August, and more information is available from Stacey Syson – email: whitebeamphotography@live.co.uk

4)  Faulty Street light Edgwood Road, Kimberley

A resident on Edgwood Road Kimberley reported a faulty street light near their property.  I duly reported this to the County Council under Hams ref 73156.

I understand that this now been repaired.

If anyone else has any faulty street light issues please let me know.

5)  Kimberley Brewery site

I have been specifically asked by local residents what the latest position is regarding the Kimberley Brewery site.  The information that I have been supplied with this month reads as follows:
…………”that applications relating to the conversion of the Maltings, new build town houses to replace the Brewhouse building and revisions to a small section of the phase one development which is underway went to Committee in February and were approved, subject to amendments to the original Section 106**** in relation to the Maltings and townhouses and changes to the materials to be used in the town houses, which were to be agreed with Chair.
The materials have since been agreed with Chair, a smooth black brick to replace the proposed cladding.
The applications relating to the Maltings conversion and the new town houses have not been issued yet as the revisions to the Section 106 have not been finalised.
There are also applications to convert the kiln store building into two units and the kiln buildings in 8 duplex apartments. Discussions with the applicant are still on-going with these. They are likely to be delegated decisions at this point and will also need amendments to the original Section 106 for the whole of the site“.
**** In effect a Section 106 agreement is a piece of local government terminology that refers to a developer agreeing to make a financial contribution to a local authority as part of the respective planning agreement.
For more information please contact Steffan Saunders – Planning & Policy Manager – Broxtowe Borough Council – steffan.saunders@broxtowe.gov.uk

 

6)   Tram Extension – Line 4 phase iii to Kimberley, Eastwood & Amber Valley

 

There is lots of hard work continuing behind the scenes on this exciting project with a group of volunteers currently working on detailed maps, routes, documents and consultation meetings with local parish councils, community groups.  We have further meetings set up with Nottingham City Council in September, and we are in discussions with some significant businesses and employers in the north of Broxtowe and just across the border Amber Valley.

A key part of our work now focuses on the concept of a transport Super Hub at Langley Mill – where the tram extended from Phoenix Park through Kimberley & Eastwood would terminate.  There would then be a fast link from Langley Mill through to the new Hs2 Hub Station in Toton, and options for electric buses from Langley Mill through Codnor to Ripley.

BBC East Midlands today covered this on Wednesday 16 May 2018 – and the whole piece from the 10 30pm news slot is shown here:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_WOCHha8y9KogIM0DbKg54f5Mwt_nJSN/view

Our key aim is to bring jobs, investment and growth to the north of Broxtowe and Amber Valley – especially – Kimberley, Awsworth, Eastwood, Langley Mill & Heanor – areas that are often left behind and forgotten about.  Reducing travel congestion is also critically important.  Our aim is not to replace any existing bus services, only to improve public transport and offer more choice to the public & reducing the need for car journeys.

More detailed information on some of the work undertaken so far over the past few years on the tram campaign can be found at:

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

If you would like to get involved in any way, please let me know.

 

 

7) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

Some of you will be familiar with the TV shows from two decades ago – Yes Minister (and Yes Prime Minister).  Here you would see frantic, yet at the same time humorous attempts by civil servants trying to find all sorts of ways to delay/obfuscate/prevent something happening.

On this particular matter (Nine Corners) and the one below (wall demolition in Kimberley) – a quite simple request by myself on both matters appears to be at a quite farcical level (though it is definitely not funny and I am singularly unimpressed).

For example I am struggling to understand the attitude of the County Council about the crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.

https://www.eastwoodadvertiser.co.uk/news/campaign-for-a-zebra-crossing-in-kimberley-1-8918604

These details were submitted to the County Council on 27 February 2018 – along with copies of the complaints and suggestions I have received from local residents, many of which were very interesting.

In a response I received from the County Council dated 3 May 2018 there were bewildering contradictions.  I have formally asked that their decision not to take action be reviewed and I have also offered to meet County Council officers in person to discuss further.

On the 29 July 2018 as I write – this matter still remains unresolved.  Hopefully come September there will be substantive news to report.

 

8)  Wall demolition – Ruislip Close, Kimberley

Again, this is bordering on something quite ridiculous now.  I was asked by a number of residents living close to Ruislip Close whether a large wall can be demolished in one of car parks, with one of reasons being incidents of anti social behaviour that takes place behind it.  I duly made some enquiries at the moment to see what actually can be done about this, what consultation is needed, and what any costs would be.

From what I can understand from officials at Broxtowe there appeared to be a dispute about land ownership, which I was hoping would be clarified soon.

There now seems an impasse with the County Council – who, having been passed the matter by Broxtowe, do not appear to want to engage.

I’m going to wait until September to give the County Council further opportunity to respond, before deciding what further action to take.

 

9)   Windmill open space – Millfield Road, Kimberley

I have been notified of instances of vandalism taking place at the open space on Millfield Road recently.  I have reported this to the police, and if anyone has any further details if they can let me know and I can liaise with the police accordingly.

 

 

 

10)   Babbington Dog Rescue
Many of you will be familiar with the excellent work undertaken at the dog rescue in Kimberley.  I have mentioned their work a number of times in newsletters over the past few years.
Currently they are trying to enhance the work they undertake with the rehabilitation of rescued dogs and are proposing to build a polytunnel, which happens to be in the Green Belt.
As I understand the current position with the planning application with Broxtowe Borough Council the polytunnel and does not meet any of the criteria for appropriate development in the Green Belt, therefore being inappropriate development.  The applicant will need to demonstrate ‘very special circumstances’ in order for the scheme to receive officer support.
Following public consultation, over one hundred letters of support for the application have been received to date, with a handful of letters of objection – mainly citing its appearance, position within the green belt and impact on traffic as reasons for objection.
This matter is likely to be referred to the Planning Committee at Broxtowe for consideration on 12 September.
If you have any questions, and either support or are against the proposals, and have not contacted the council already – please
get in touch with  Steffan Saunders – Planning & Policy Manager – Broxtowe Borough Council – steffan.saunders@broxtowe.gov.uk

11) Rumbletums Cafe, 2a Victoria Street, Kimberley, Nottingham, NG16 2NH

Rumbletums Cafe and Training Project was set up to offer vocational training and work experience placements to young people and young adults (16-30) with learning disabilities.

I believe one of jewels in the crown that Kimberley has is Rumletums café.  They are an absolutely excellent organisation whom I have had much contact with over the years.  I last met with Jeff Buck one of its founders and champions – on Wednesday 11 July to discuss their current predicament – namely for the previous seven years, Rumbletums has rented its premises at a discounted rent, but now the landlords want to sell the building within the next year… at a cost of £200,000.  Rumbletums is therefore faced with having to buy the premises, move out or wind up the project.

If you can support Rumbletums in any way – please see: https://www.gofundme.com/rumbletums-cafe

 

12)   Orchard Street Kimberley
Yesterday along with Jacquie Sainsbury (Head Teacher at Brookhill Leys Primary School in Eastwood) and Kimberley resident Ellis Tansley – both Labour candidates for Kimberley in the borough elections next year (more about this in September’s newsletter) – we talked with a number of residents on Orchard Street Kimberley about the dangerous parking issues.  Residents offered a number of solutions for improvements and we will be contacting the County Council in due course.

 

13)   Suggested recommended viewing/campaign issues

Just one article this month – you are probably all fed up with that B word – Brexit – however I did find this article insightful and well worth a read:

Brexit – the promised destination of a one-dimensional referendum that is simply illusory:

https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/uk/2018/07/contradictory-desires-174m-brexit-voters-can-t-be-satisfied-one-deal#amp

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – June 2018

1)  Missing Post Box Maws Lane, Kimberley

It’s coming home!

Following some concerns raised with me by residents around Beverley Drive and Stocks Road area Kimberley about a missing post box I contacted the Royal Mail Group about this.  I’m pleased to report a successful outcome, with a letter I received today (please click on the image below).   If the format doesn’t work properly and you can’t see the image please let me know.

2)  Armed Forces day celebrations in Broxtowe

As part of Armed Forced Day celebrations, a Freedom of Entry Parade will take place this coming Saturday 30 June in Kimberley.  Soldiers from 170 (Infrastructure Support) Engineer Group will march through Kimberley Town Centre at 11.00am to exercise their freedom of entry to the Borough of Broxtowe.

For more information please contact Broxtowe Borough Council – 0117 9173210 – email civic@broxtowe.gov.uk or click on: www.broxtowe.gov.uk/freedomparade

 

3)   New lottery scheme to support communities throughout Broxtowe

Local charities and and voluntary organisations in Broxtowe Borough are being encouraged to sign up to a new lottery scheme, which will help local people support good causes in the Borough when it launches later this year.

Work is underway to set up The Broxtowe Lotto, where the community can buy tickets online to weekly draws for a chance to win a jackpot of £25,000, as well as prizes of £2,000, £250, £25 or three free tickets. Tickets will cost £1.00 with 60p from each ticket going towards local good causes.

Any Broxtowe-based organisations who are interested in signing up should contact the Council’s Commercial Manager on 0115 917 3316.

They should be:

  • non-profit making
  • have a constitution or set of rules
  • able to provide annual financial statements (audited where appropriate)
  • or an annual report (unless it is a new organisation in its first year of development when a budget statement would be required).
  • Organisations must be open to all regardless of age, race, creed, sex or political affiliation as appropriate.
  • Organisations must be able to demonstrate a link with the borough, either through the direct provision of services or other means, which benefit the people of the borough thereby enhancing the quality of life for the local community.
  • Organisations which wish to have a dedicated webpage on Broxtowe Lotto’s site must be promoting projects or services which are of benefit to the local community.
  • Organisations that promote political, racial, religious, sexual or social intolerance will not be considered for participation as their services will not be of positive benefit to all within the local community.

There are two parts to the Broxtowe Lotto. Good causes in Broxtowe Borough will be able to set up their own lottery page and will receive 50p in every £1.00 spent by players using this method. A further 10p in every pound will go into a general good causes fund, with the remainder being put towards prizes, operating costs and VAT.

Players who do not wish to support a specific cause can still take part, with 60p of their ticket price going into the general good causes fund, which will be distributed by the Council.

The Broxtowe Lotto was agreed by Broxtowe Borough Council’s Finance and Resources Committee earlier this year.

For more information or if your organisation would like to express its interest in being part of the Broxtowe Lotto, please contact Broxtowe Borough Council on 0115 917 3316.

Potential players should keep an eye out for more information on the Council’s website at: https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/broxtowelotto

 

4) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

I am struggling to understand the attitude of the County Council about the crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.

https://www.eastwoodadvertiser.co.uk/news/campaign-for-a-zebra-crossing-in-kimberley-1-8918604

These details were submitted to the County Council on 27 February 2018 – along with copies of the complaints and suggestions I have received from local residents, many of which were very interesting.

The most recent response I received from the County Council dated 3 May 2018 was bewildering and contained several contradictions.  I have formally asked that their decision not to take action be reviewed and I have also offered to meet County Council officers in person to discuss further.  I have had no response yet to my latest submission of 15 May 2018 (despite issuing several reminders) – when I receive more information I will let you know.

 

5)  Tram Extension – Line 4 phase iii to Kimberley, Eastwood & Amber Valley

There is a huge extra amount being undertaken now and during the next 8 months following a burst of activity last month which certainly caught the attention of some of the local media with proposals for an exciting “super transport hub” in Langley Mill, where a tram from Phoenix Park through Kimberley & Eastwood would terminate, then allowing a fast train link directly through to the new HS2 Hub Station in Toton, with options for additional public transport improvements up through Codnor through to Ripley.

If anyone would like to join a friendly and non politically aligned community group looking at the tram extension, please do get in touch.

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

6)  Wall demolition – Ruislip Close, Kimberley

I have been asked by a number of residents living close to Ruislip Close whether a large wall can be demolished in one of car parks, with one of reasons being incidents of anti social behaviour that takes place behind it.  I’m making some enquiries at the moment to see what actually can be done about this, what consultation is needed, and what any costs would be.

From what I can understand from officials at Broxtowe there appears to be a dispute about land ownership, which I am hoping will be clarified soon.

When there is more information available I will let you know.

 

7) Rumbletums Cafe, 2a Victoria Street, Kimberley, Nottingham, NG16 2NH

One event next month to let you know about –  on Wednesday 18 July, 7pm to 9pm – Death Cafe.  An opportunity to talk about any aspect of death or dying in a safe, friendly relaxed atmosphere. It’s not bereavement counselling or group therapy, but what it is, is a chance to face that final taboo and, by confronting our mortality, to live a fuller and happier life.  And there’s coffee, tea and cake too.

More information available by contacting Rumbletums: http://rumbletums.org.uk/contact-us/ 

8)  Edgwood Road, Kimberley

I met with the local police Chiefs on Tuesday this week to talk through a number of issues affecting Kimberley.  One of matters we talked about related to land being used at the top of Edgwood Road.  I have been contacted by several local residents asking about ownership of the land, and various activities that had been taking place in this vicinity.

My understanding is that PC Toon is meeting with the owner of the horse (on the land) this week.

In terms of ownership of the land – this (as ever with land ownership matters) seems to be a reasonably complex matter (apparently it belongs to an energy company).

I am now making separate enquiries with Broxtowe and the Land Registry as to real ownership of the land.

I have had some excellent suggestions put forward to me by local residents including making the area a “community space and garden”.

I can’t promise that this will happen, but I will certainly be endeavouring to find out about land ownership – and what the possibilities are in terms of public adoption.

When there is more information I will let you know.

9)   The Precinct, Kimberley
Many people have complained to me over the last few years about incidents of litter and general untidiness on The Precinct in Kimberley.  Responsibility for cleaning was before the responsibility of a private management company however after asking questions at the Leisure & Environment Committee on 13 June (page 19)

https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/media/4814/leisure-and-environment-committee-agenda-13-june-2018.pdf – I was informed that Broxtowe Borough Council have now taken ownership for cleaning of The Precinct.  This is something that I particularly welcome (it was very difficult to trace who had responsibility for cleaning before), and now it’s in public ownership – there is greater transparency and accountability.

If anyone does notice anything untoward about excess litter, please let me know.

 

10)   Improving traffic flow – in and around Giltbrook Retail Park

I am very much looking forward to meeting with the green travel coördinator for one of the largest firms on the Retail Park in July, there’s lots to talk about affecting Kimberley, Giltbrook and the surrounding areas and am looking forward to some innovative and positive ideas coming forward.

I’ll update you in future updates on progress.

 

11)  Local Residents’ meetings

When I was chatting with a number of residents on Edgwood Road, Kimberley last week – I was asked about the possibility of residents meetings (essentially it’s a bit like a surgery) – you come and have a chat with me about local issues, we see what can be done, and more generally we put the world to rights.  In the distant past I have undertaken surgeries and to be honest these were largely not well attended.  I get the majority of my work and contact from residents now through word of mouth recommendation and this newsletter.

I’m happy to try residents meetings again – but maybe do it a bit differently.  I’ll try this once a month from July (and each month rather than ask you to come to say Rumbletums or the Parish Hall – I’ll come to you).  Next month then on Saturday 7 July between 10 30am and 12 30 – I’ll visit residents on Clive Crescent, North Street and West Street – Kimberley.  Each month I’ll try a separate area and see how this goes.

 

12)   Lord Ferrers Awards 2018

Do you know someone in the local community – a volunteer who supports the policies in helping keep our communities safe?  If so you are able to nominate an individual – whom if successful would receive an award organised by the Home Office at a ceremony on 16 October in central London.  Please see the following letter for more information:

180607 Letter to all local government Chief Executives

 

 

13)   Suggested recommended viewing/campaign issues

Some of the most interesting items I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is said, but they do provoke some thought and discussion – this month – Grenfall, the Brexit shambles and the Tories NHS pledge:

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – May 2018

Hi all

A warm welcome to my May newsletter and especially those who have joined this month.

It’s been literally non-stop work all month and there’s lots of information to relay so it’s straight down to business.

If you have any feedback, comments, any issue you would like to raise or need help with personal casework, as ever please get in touch.

Best regards

Richard

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – May 2018

1)  Giltbrook Care Home, Nottingham Road, Giltbrook

On Tuesday 22 May, following a specific request from local residents I visited staff and relatives to discuss some serious concerns about the future of Giltbrook Care Home (GCH).  I listened very carefully to some impassioned pleas from both staff and relatives who were worried about information that had been fed back to them.

Whilst at GCH I noticed in particular how motivated the staff are and particularly how happy and content the relatives seemed about how their loved ones are being cared for.

I duly asked my colleague County Cllr John Handley to come back to GCH on the following Thursday 24 May, and we both duly visited again, with John addressing the meeting this time and taking on board all of the comments made by those attending.  John handled a number of points put to him regarding the County Council involvement with great aplomb and I have seen a written submission that he has now made to the Chairman of the Adult Social Care & Public Health Committee – Cllr Stuart Wallace on behalf of local residents.

In summary whilst I appreciate that there have been problems in the past with previous management of GCH and with various communications during the past two years, there has clearly been a complete turn around during the past two months.

Both John and I hope that both the Care Quality Commission and the County Council will recognise the steps that have now been put in place to rectify the previous concerns and with the necessary safeguards in place, we trust that GCH will be allowed to prove itself as an excellent provider of care.

A huge “thank you” to Cllr John Handley for his excellent support.  When John has a response I will let you know.

More information available from myself or Cllr John Handley, County Councillor for Greasley & Brinsley

 

 

 

 

2)  Armed Forces day in Broxtowe – two events – Beeston & Kimberley 25 & 30 June respectively

Two specific events are taking place in the borough – to celebrate Armed Forces Day – one in Beeston which is the Armed Forces Flag Raising in Beeston Square on Monday 25 June 2018 at 1045am.

Then in the north of the borough on Saturday 30 June at 11am there will be a Freedom of Entry Parade through Kimberley town centre at 11am featuring 170 personnel from the Infrastructure Support Engineer Group.

Following the parade in Kimberley there will be a commemorative service at Hall om Wong park to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

More information is available from:

3) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

I am struggling to understand the attitude of the County Council regarding the crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.

https://www.eastwoodadvertiser.co.uk/news/campaign-for-a-zebra-crossing-in-kimberley-1-8918604

These details were submitted to the County Council on 27 February 2018 – along with copies of the complaints and suggestions I have received from local residents, many of which were very interesting.

The most recent response I received from the County Council dated 3 May 2018 was bewildering and contained several contradictions.  I have formally asked that their decision not to take action be reviewed and I have also offered to meet County Council officers in person to discuss further.  I have had no response yet to my latest submission of 15 May 2018, when I receive more information I will let you know.

 

4)  Tram Extension – Line 4 phase iii to Kimberley, Eastwood & Amber Valley

 

There’s been some solid progress during May on the proposed tram extension from Phoenix Park, out through Kimberley and Eastwood into Amber Valley.  I think I wrote previously that I’d burnt some midnight oil getting documents prepared for a high level meeting that took place earlier this month in Westminster on 16 May.  Well now that has happened there’s a mountain of further work to do, and I am very grateful for all of the positive support feedback from businesses and individuals.   I also at the same time appreciate that not everyone shares my enthusiasm, and I am working hard to ensure that there is support across the political spectrum and that genuine concerns are properly addressed.  Those people who write derogatory, incorrect or inflammatory remarks on Facebook I simply ignore.  Constructive comment, criticism and viewpoints however are always welcome.

I am really pleased for example that a colleague who has previously stood as political opponent, but has some really good ideas and wants to get involved in campaigning for the tram (and if truth be told they are better on computers than me), came to visit me two weeks ago to offer their support.

What has certainly caught the attention of some of the media are proposals for an exciting “super transport hub” in Langley Mill, where a tram from Phoenix Park would terminate, then allowing a fast train link directly through to the new HS2 Hub Station in Toton, with options for new modern bus links through Codnor to Ripley.

I have had further sessions with a number of colleagues in various locations since 16 May and we are now in the process of undertaking more activities and compiling more detailed documents that will explore various options in greater depth with a substantive report being produced in early 2019 that will aim to take us to the next stage.

People often ask me what the timescales for all of this and when might any of these proposals actually materialise.  That’s not an easy question to answer.  This is all very much at the reasonably early planning stages at present with lots of options and economic assessments for viability for routes and options being considered.  Political events both locally and nationally in Westminster with the passage of HS2 legislation through parliament during the next two years will undoubtedly be hugely relevant and affect the eventual outcome.

It’s probably safe to say as well that there may well be a phased approach to major transport infrastructure improvements not only along the A610 corridor but elsewhere through the East Midlands with the advent of HS2.  It’s highly unlikely that on any one day everything will be delivered, rather there will be a staged implementation.

General information on HS2  can be found at: http://www.d2n2lep.org/write/East_Mids_HS2_Growth_Strategy_FINAL_VERSION_2017.pdf 

In terms of HS2 itself there is a public awareness meeting on Friday 22 June 2018 – 130pm at Trowell Parish Hall, Stapleford Road, Trowell, NG9 3QA.

Any questions, please get in touch in the usual way, with a reminder that there’s a good deal of information also at:

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5)  Cinema Giltbrook Retail Park (GRP)

Many of you may remember the petition I undertook in 2013 regarding the cinema at GRP.

Cinema Project 2013 – Giltbrook Retail Park

I was subsequently shown plans whereby the owners of GRP wanted to install a cinema by 2022.  There was then a period of silence and the project went onto the back burner due to other priorities for the site.

Due to the increasing number of people who still ask me about what is happening with the cinema proposals I met earlier this year with British Land representatives again and put again the case for a cinema complex.

Along with Cllrs John Handley and Margaret Handley I met with British Land representatives on Thursday 17 May at GRP.  We discussed this matter at some length and were advised that the project is not dead in the water however there needs to be some very creative thinking in order to take this forward now.

Creative thinking, therefore it is, and during the summer I am planning to see if there is a way we can make some tangible progress with this again.

I am disappointed that progress on this is so slow after all the work that has been put in thus far and with previous firm proposals now seemingly on the back burner.

I think this is a case of being extremely diligent, flexible and not giving up!

 

6)  Wall demolition – Ruislip Close, Kimberley

I have been asked by a number of residents living close to Ruislip Close whether a large wall can be demolished in one of car parks, with one of reasons being incidents of anti social behaviour that takes place behind it.  I’m making some enquiries at the moment to see what actually can be done about this, what consultation is needed, and what any costs would be.

From what I can understand from officials at Broxtowe there appears to be a dispute about land ownership, which I am hoping will be clarified soon.

When there is more information available I will let you know.

 

7) Rumbletums Cafe, 2a Victoria Street, Kimberley, Nottingham, NG16 2NH

 

Two events to let you know about here, one in June, and the other in July.

Wednesday 6 June, 10am to 1130am – Parents and Carers Support and Networking Group for parents/carers of children, young people or young adults with learning disabilities.  No charge.  Everyone Welcome.
Wednesday 18 July, 7pm to 9pm – Death Cafe. An opportunity to talk about any aspect of death or dying in a safe, friendly relaxed atmosphere. It’s not bereavement counselling or group therapy, but what it is, is a chance to face that final taboo and, by confronting our mortality, to live a fuller and happier life.  And there’s coffee, tea and cake too.
More information available by contacting Rumbletums: http://rumbletums.org.uk/contact-us/ 

 

8)  The Hidden Bakery, Eastwood

I’m so pleased that the Hidden Bakery in Eastwood continues to flourish.  For June supper clubs and lots more information about what is happening see:

https://www.facebook.com/thehiddenbakeryuk/

 

9)   Suggested recommended viewing/campaign issues

Some of the most interesting items I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is said, but they do provoke some thought and discussion:

Understanding the legitimate grievances, anger & resentment that animate the populist revolt & creating a politics that can respond is the most is the most pressing political challenge of our time:

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – April 2018

Hi all

A warm welcome to my April newsletter and especially those who have joined this month.

There’s lots of information to relay so it’s straight down to business.

If you have any feedback, comments, any issue you would like to raise or need help with personal casework, as ever please get in touch.

Best regards

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – April 2018

1)  Tram Extension – Line 4 phase iii to Kimberley, Eastwood & Amber Valley

I’ve burnt some midnight oil during March and early April preparing very detailed submissions that have now been sent to East Midlands Councils.  These include outline plans for the tram network, to be extended from Phoenix Park out through Kimberley & Eastwood into Amber Valley.  In addition there have been some exciting proposals put forward that would link the north of Broxtowe (Nuthall, Awsworth, Kimberley and Eastwood), with a fast link through to the new Hs2 Hub station at Toton (from a hub station in Langley Mill).  It’s all about connectivity.

There’s been some heavyweight support from significant local businesses in both Broxtowe and Amber Valley in addition to community organisations and rail interest groups (all of which have now been submitted also).

There is a high level meeting taking place with Sir John Peace (Midlands Engine Chairman), next month in Westminster where I will be attending along with other key stakeholders to discuss these matters further.

I will then provide a full report back to you in May/June on progress and what the next steps then are.

In the meantime as a reminder – an historic link to the tram campaign can be found at.

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

Any questions before, please get in touch in the usual way.

 

2) Erewash Mental Health Association Limited (EMHAL)

 

Last month I was asked by a resident in Eastwood to visit the EMHAL, who operate out of the Touchwood Centre, 4 Charlotte Street, Ilkeston.

I visited the centre, and have also met separately with a Director on the Board of EMHAL (who lives in Broxtowe), to discuss some of the challenges they are facing regarding funding shortfalls.

From my visit to Touchwood Centre I can see that they do a fantastic job supporting vulnerable people with mental health issues.   There are people from Broxtowe who do go over the border into Ilkeston for support and use the centre.

For my part I am liaising with a number of organisations to see what funding and wider support maybe available.

If you are interested in finding out more about what EMHAL do, some brief background together with contact details are shown below.

Erewash Mental Health Association Limited is a Registered Charity, which has been in existence for over thirty years.  It provides daily centre based support for adults with a diverse range of mental health issues, both long and short term.

Until the end of March 2017 the Touchwood Centres in Long Eaton and Ilkeston were fully funded by Derbyshire County Council and the Hardwick Clinical Commissioning Group.  However, recent changes to the way in which mental health services are funded in Derbyshire, away from centre based permanent support, has resulted in a 100% cut in their funding.  This took effect from the 1st April 2017 putting at risk their ability to continue to offer help to some of the most vulnerable people within the local community.  In June last year they took the very difficult decision to close the Long Eaton centre and to put all our efforts into keeping the centre in Ilkeston open.  However, their reserves are being rapidly depleted, leaving them with the prospect of having to close at the end of November this year.
The Touchwood Centre in Ilkeston is a very valuable resource and has the potential to play a vital role in continuing to support adults with mental ill health, not only in Ilkeston, but in the surrounding areas, some of which are amongst the most deprived in the country.  Indeed, the only alternatives now on offer are telephone counselling and six face to face counselling sessions, both of which are short term and do not offer help on a daily, permanent basis, which is essential for both the physical and mental wellbeing of our service users.  The new service is called “Peer Support and Recovery”, which is fine for those who can recover, but many mental health conditions are long term and using a “sticking plaster” technique is unlikely to improve the lives of those most in need.
A main focus now is to raise the profile of the Touchwood Centre and to urgently address the issue of funding.
The Touchwood Centre is open on weekdays from 10 am to 3.30 pm and offers daily support in a safe,secure and non judgemental environment for adults suffering from long and short term mental health issues.  The service operates on an open door basis.  There is no appointment system and no rationing of services.  Experienced staff cater for service users’ specific needs and are there to signpost individuals to other services if necessary.  Refreshments and a nutritious lunch are provided.  They strive to encourage those who access our service to move forward through learning and adopting the life skills necessary to live, work and participate in their local community.

3) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

Following concerns from local residents I launched a major campaign earlier this year to try and improve road crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.

https://www.eastwoodadvertiser.co.uk/news/campaign-for-a-zebra-crossing-in-kimberley-1-8918604

These details were submitted to the County Council on 27 February 2018 – along with copies of the complaints and suggestions I have received from local residents, many of which were very interesting.

On 19 March 2018 – I issued a reminder to the County Council to chase on what action they propose to take.

There appears to be utter confusion now with County Council, there is no joined up communications between their officers and local elected representative.  I am told to do one thing, I do it, only then to be contradicted.  They seem to be more interested in internal protocol rather than doing anything specifically for local residents.

I have complied with their every request and because of their inaction and dithering on what is a very important matter I have launched a formal complaint against the County Council and am now awaiting a response.

4)   Fly tipping near Awsworth Petrol Station 

I have been made aware of some serious incidents of fly tipping near Awsworth petrol station, and visited the site two weeks ago and visited to find some clearly unacceptable scenes.  I am concerned about possible contamination due to what looks like fridges and other electrical goods being dumped near flowing water, and I have reported all of the findings.

If anyone else experiences problems with fly tipping I would be grateful if you could let me know, so I can make the necessary representations.

When there is more information I will let you know.

 

5)  Cinema Giltbrook Retail Park (GRP)

Many of you may remember the petition I undertook in 2013 regarding the cinema at GRP.

Cinema Project 2013 – Giltbrook Retail Park

I was subsequently shown plans whereby the owners of GRP wanted to install a cinema by 2022.  There was then a period of silence and the project went onto the back burner due to other priorities for the site.

Due to the increasing number of people who still ask me about what is happening with the cinema proposals I met earlier this year with British Land representatives again and put again the case for a cinema complex.  I’m currently awaiting a response to some detailed enquiries I made about this as there appears to be growing local interest again with this idea.

As soon as I hear anything further I will let you know.

 

6)   Retirement Living Review Consultation – Broxtowe Borough Council

At the Housing Committee meeting, held on 14 March 2018, it was agreed that consultation would take place with the council’s Retirement Living tenants on the three options proposed in the report of the Independent Review of Retirement Living Service.  The report can be found here:
A series of consultation meetings are scheduled to take place at various Retirement Living Schemes throughout the Borough.  The consultation ends on 4 May 2018.

7)   Residents’ parking permits

I have received requests from people in two different areas in Kimberley for residents car parking permits – Noel Street and Jubilee Street.  Before I make any detailed enquiries if anyone else has any specific asks regarding the possibility of parking permits in any other area if you could let me know by 15 May.

 

8)  Wall demolition – Ruislip Close, Kimberley

I have been asked by a number of residents living close to Ruislip Close whether a large wall can be demolished in one of car parks, with one of reasons being incidents of anti social behaviour that takes place behind it.  I’m making some enquiries at the moment to see what actually can be done about this, what consultation is needed, and what any costs would be.

When there is more information available I will let you know.

 

9)   Suggested recommended viewing/campaign issues

Some of the most interesting items I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is said, but they do provoke some thought and discussion:

3) County Council consultation on Maws Lane junction *improvements* Kimberley

I mentioned in February’s edition how Nottinghamshire County Council want to make further *improvements* to the Maws Lane junction in Kimberley.

I made a very detailed submission against the so-called *improvements* demonstrating how they did nothing to improve the existing and long-term problems in the area.   I also sent in a resident’s complaint that I had received regarding the *improvements*.  The response I have received from the County Council stated the they will be overruling the objections and the scheme will be installed as advertised.

Their full response is shown here: TRO5249 Awsworth Lane, Kimberley – Report

4)   Tram Extension – Line 4 phase iii to Kimberley, Eastwood & Amber Valley

 

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

A significant amount of extra work has been undertaken during the past three weeks, with a full summary shown in the above link.

Following a meeting held at Broxtowe Borough Council offices in Beeston on Wednesday 28 February, I have submitted this morning a very detailed document with business and community support for the extension out to Amber Valley.

There are other initiatives planned during the coming months and as soon as there is more information I will update you again.

 

 

5) Giltbrook traffic congestion

 

I continue to receive lots of complaints from residents concerned about ever-increasing traffic congestion in around Giltbrook – especially at rush hour times.  Nottinghamshire County Council have been contacted on many occasions and my particular thanks goes to my colleague County Cllr John Handley – cllr.john.handley@nottscc.gov.uk – who is being very responsive to the problems.

I have contacted John again today following further complaints and frustrations with the traffic flow going up into Eastwood from the retail park.  Some residents have asked for the traffic signals installed several years ago to be removed and replaced instead by a mini roundabout on Nottingham Road, Giltbrook.

If you have any specific complaints or questions about this you are welcome to contact John directly – on the email address shown above.

 

6) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

 

Following concerns from local residents I launched a major campaign earlier this year to try and improve road crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.

https://www.eastwoodadvertiser.co.uk/news/campaign-for-a-zebra-crossing-in-kimberley-1-8918604

These details were submitted to the County Council on 27 February 2018 – along with copies of the complaints and suggestions I have received from local residents, many of which were very interesting.

Yesterday – 19 March 2018 – I issued a reminder to the County Council to chase on what action they propose to take.  I am currently awaiting a response, so I hope to be able to update you further in April’s newsletter.

 

7) Disability Benefits a broken system?

 

 

The Citizens Advice Bureau in Broxtowe sent me a detailed report on Disability Benefits which shows experiences across Nottinghamshire.  It’s very detailed and informative and can found here: Notts Cluster Disability Benefits Report FINAL

 

8)   Freeman and Alderman nominations – Broxtowe

 

The title of Honorary Alderman of the Borough is awarded to past councillors who have given outstanding service in their role as councillor.

The title of Honoary Freeman is awarded to persons of distinction and persons who have rendered eminent services to Broxtowe Borough over an extended period of time.

The details are shown below (but they have to be submitted by a councillor), if you want to nominate someone, please let me know (by this coming Friday).

https://selfservice.broxtowe.gov.uk/renderform.aspx?k=7B776E2FFFD16E8A9CA1A7125AC3387F4F5A854E&t=130&utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=

 

9)    CCTV request – Babbington Lane, Kimberley (near the water tower)

I’ve received increasing complaints over the past few months regarding increasing the amount of litter in this vicinity.  One request I had was for CCTV to be installed to try and combat these occurrences.  I’d be very interested to know your views on this.

 

10)  Regeneration Sites update (throughout Broxtowe)

I am often asked about what is happening on key sites throughout the borough ie Moults Yard Stapleford, Beamlight Eastwood, Boots, Field Farm, Kimberley Brewery.  If you look at the following link (pages 16-22) you will find a full update: https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/media/4495/agenda-15-march-2018.pdf

 

11)   Suggested recommended viewing/campaign issues

Some of the most interesting items I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is said, but they do provoke some thought and discussion:

  1. Less than zero: six months working in low-wage Britain – https://www.newstatesman.com/2018/03/less-zero-six-months-working-low-wage-britain
  2. Early Intervention -the next steps: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/284086/early-intervention-next-steps2.pdf

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – February 2018

1) County Council consultation on Maws Lane junction *improvements* Kimberley

I have received information showing how Nottinghamshire County Council want to make further *improvements* to the Maws Lane/Awsworth Lane junction.  A number of residents in and around Maws Lane have been in touch stating how disappointed they are with what the County Council are proposing (which will do nothing to alleviate the ongoing long standing problems in this area).

You have until 28 February 2018 to make your views known.  These should be sent to  tmconsultation@viaem.co.uk  (my response is shown below).

Please see the following details (dependent upon your internet browser you may need to click on the actual images).

Subject: The Nottinghamshire County Council (Awsworth Lane & Maws Lane, Kimberley) (prohibition of waiting) traffic regulation order 2018 (5249) – public advertisement
FAO Mrs Steph Walford
Dear Steph
I have been passed your letter of 29 January 2018 by Broxtowe Borough Council regarding the above.
I would like to take this opportunity to respond and send you an example of one of the comments I have received (below).
You may well remember that I wrote to you on 24 August 2016 – with a very detailed submission (following months of consultations) on suggestions from local Kimberley residents on how to improve traffic and pedestrian issues in two particular parts of Kimberley – one being Maws Lane:-
 
In my letter of 24 August 2016 (as above and contained within the link above) I stated as follows:  “I would be happy to meet up to discuss the work that was undertaken and that I looked forward to some to some imaginative and long term benefits for local people and therefore address long standing traffic problems in this part of Broxtowe”.
I regret to say that the offer to meet never materialised, to which I was very disappointed, but not surprised.  Furthermore whilst I (eventually) received responses from the County Council, they completely ignored the major issues faced by local residents in Kimberley.  I will not repeat these here as I have raised them previously on so many occasions.
The County Council insisted on pursuing (in their own words) the cheapest and quickest option with regards to Maws Lane “improvements” of £25,000.  I argued consistently that the monies would have been much better spent looking at the longer-term solutions to traffic issues in Kimberley.
Whilst I understand the County Council will say that their stance has been vindicated by the Ombudsman regarding Maws Lane £25,000 scheme (this largely related to the validity of the consultation) – the demerits of the scheme alas are now quite clearly emerging.
Spending further monies on double yellow lines is going to do nothing to ameliorate the situation for residents in and around Maws Lane who live with daily problems that the County Council continue to ignore.  In fact it will only exacerbate matters further.  For example please see the email from a local resident that was sent unsolicited to me.
Please do not think that this a case of “I told you so”.
What I would ask for a further review of the suggestions made by local residents contained in my original consultations to be actively considered.
I would (again) make the offer to meet with you and local residents in order to work out together a more constructive and positive way forward.
Many thanks for your time and assistance in this matter which is very much appreciated.

2)   Holy Trinity Church Kimberley – regeneration project

 

The Holy Trinity church in Kimberley continues to make a significant contribution towards the well being of local residents within the nearby community.   The church is an integral part of everyday life to many hundreds of local people.

Due to limitations the church faces because of the physical constraints imposed upon it to undertake additional work for the local community, an exciting new regeneration project is being planned which includes:

– replacing the existing church hall with a modern facility created within space inside the present church building which will then serve as both a community facility and church.

– the inside of the church will be modernised with new flooring and seating creating an area for community use whilst retaining the main church area and the altar sanctuary for services and worship.

– the existing church hall, which is now over 60 years old, is in very poor condition and approaching the point where it is not fit for purpose.  The hall however, is a crucial community facility and its loss would have considerable impact on local community users. With this in mind, the proposal is to replace this facility within the existing church building by creating a dual purpose area which can be used for both community activities and church services.  Significantly, the new facility will be modern and up to date and include all the essentials for a community area such as toilets, including an accessible toilet, a kitchen, an area for community activities eg: Playgroup, Brownies, Karate, Dog Training, Badminton, Yoga, Dancing and so on together with a place to meet and have tea and coffee.

– the proposal also envisages a new entrance area to replace the existing choir vestry and in the church grounds improvements will be made to the surrounding area and also to the car park which will include a revised access from Church Hill.

Anyone requiring more information on the regeneration project can contact Mr Ian H Wilson: ian.wilson22@ntlworld.com

 

 

3) Giltbrook traffic congestion

 

I have received a lot of correspondence recently from residents concerned about ever increasing traffic congestion in around Giltbrook – especially at rush hour times. Nottinghamshire County Council have been contacted on many occasions and the latest response I have had this week is shown below.

My particular thanks to my colleague County Cllr John Handley – cllr.john.handley@nottscc.gov.uk

– who has in particular done a lot of work on this, and we have both asked the County Council to see what longer term solutions to the traffic problems can be found.

(The official County Council response thus far is as follows):

There is a significant amount of traffic that travels towards Awsworth and Ilkeston from the Eastwood direction in the morning peak and does the reverse in the evening peak. In addition in the morning there is also a significant amount of traffic that comes off the A610 and turns right towards Awsworth and Ilkeston (and possibly further afield such as Spondon and Derby). This traffic causes queuing and congestion which affects the approaches to the A610 Roundabout coming from Eastwood and from Awsworth.

Drivers are channelled into the offside lane on the approach coming from the Ikea island if they are travelling towards Awsworth or heading onto the A610 towards Langley Mill. The inside lane is for traffic travelling towards the M1 and Nottingham. This lane allocation is due to the relative traffic flows. In the morning the traffic flow heading towards Awsworth is the highest, with Nottingham traffic next highest, then A610 towards Langley Mill. If the lanes were adjusted, there would be more queues and congestion as the 2 largest flows (Awsworth and Nottingham bound) would be in the same lane.

I have made adjustments to the traffic light settings at the A610 / Gin Close Way Junction to reduce the green time that the A610 Off slip receives. I hope this will alleviate some of the congestion, however during peak periods there will still be queues and delays in the area.

4) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

Following concerns from local residents I have launched a major campaign to try and improve road crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.

https://www.eastwoodadvertiser.co.uk/news/campaign-for-a-zebra-crossing-in-kimberley-1-8918604

So many people try and cross the road either to get to Kettlebrook Lodge, Holy Trinity Church and of course to then cross back and walk up to Hardy Street and experience many difficulties.  Thank you to all who have been in touch thus far, following letters I have delivered.

There are some very interesting ideas coming forward and I will go through all of the replies next month with submissions to be made in April to the County Council.

I’ll update you when there is more information and publish a summary of all the responses I have received.

 

5) Kettlebrook Lodge, Kimberley

A big thanks to Kimberley resident and volunteer with 2nd Kimberley Scouts Mr Ellis Tansley who organised a petition of 2250 names demonstrating the clear strength of support for this very popular and well used building, and opposition to any development on its site.

At Broxtowe Borough Council full meeting on Wednesday 31 January 2018 this was presented – and it certainly, well shall we say, caused a stir!

I am pleased therefore that the strength of opposition to Kettlebrook closing is so strong and that the original closure *suggestions* (as they are now diplomatically referred to) are being dropped.

 

6) Hardy Street car fire, Kimberley

Many of you in Kimberley will be aware of the events that happened on Hardy Street earlier this month.  I got lots of messages about this.  All of the information I received was sent to the police and I also passed on confidential information that was relayed to me.

If anyone has confidential item for the police at any time, details can be sent directly to Nottinghamshire Police – Paul Toon – paul.toon@nottinghamshire.pnn.police.uk

 

7)  Pot holes

I mentioned this in January’s newsletter and not surprising there is a been plenty of responses.  One of the worst areas I was notified about was the top of Swingate.  I visited residents up there last week and duly reported the problems to the County Council.  They in turn have said they will carry out some work this week.  A major issue is that a lot of work that is done is only of temporary nature and there are deteriorations again soon after, which I have challenged the County Council about.

If you have further areas you would like to be looked at please let me know.

 

8)   Community events in and around Broxtowe

https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/news-events/whats-on-where/ – this link contains some interesting local information.

 

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

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

I hope to have some more detailed news on developments next month, following work being currently undertaken with a number of strategic partners.

 

10)   Suggested recommended viewing/campaign issues

Some of the most interesting items I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is said, but they do provoke some thought and discussion:

 

a) The dénouement of the dominant political issue of the moment will be messy, misspent time, crumbling walls & leadership reduced to the sidelines

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/feb/23/brexit-walls-theresa-may-customs-union-trade-bill-bystander?CMP=share_btn_tw

 

b) Why Premier Inns should clean up their act
c) The best leaders are political alchemists: capable of repeatedly turning crises into opportunities

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – January 2018

 

1) Important information if you are regular traveller by train

Major works in Derby start on 22 July 2018 with a £200m investment at the local railway station there.

 

The project: “Derby Resignalling” is the biggest rail investment in Derby for some years, and will replace and upgrade the current track and infrastructure to provide better journeys for the thousands of passengers who travel to, from and through Derby every day. It is part of the biggest upgrade of the Midland Main Line since it opened in 1870 to support better journeys between Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham.

 

Changes to journeys vary depending on when and where passengers are travelling.  However, East Midlands Trains and CrossCountry services to and from Crewe, Matlock, Birmingham, Nottingham and Sheffield will be affected at different times while the work is carried out.

 

Temporary changes to journeys to and through Derby as part the of improvement works can be found by clicking on the following link: Derby Resignalling – January Customer Leaflet

If you have any questions about the works and impact on travel, you can use this dedicated email address:

dby2018@eastmidlandstrains.co.uk

 

 

 

 

2) Giltbrook traffic congestion

I am grateful to all of you living in Kimberley & Giltbrook and the surrounding areas who continue to keep in touch during regarding increasing traffic congestion in and around the approach to and from the Giltbrook (IKEA) Retail Park – and especially relating to the IKEA roundabout.

 

I have been stuck in the queues myself recently and I have also been made aware of some of the road rage that has ensued.

 

I know that the County Councillor covering Giltbrook – Cllr John Handley has also taken a keen interest in the problems.  He held a site meeting last week with a number of people including Dave Walker (District Manager Ashfield & Broxtowe) Via East Mids Ltd.

 

Both Cllr Handley and myself have asked for some long-term improvements to be put in place in order that the current problems can be properly tackled.

 

Please continue to keep me updated with any specific problems you have.

 

You can also contact – County Cllr John Handley – cllr.john.handley@nottscc.gov.uk

3) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

Following concerns from local residents I have launched a major campaign to try and improve road crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.

https://www.eastwoodadvertiser.co.uk/news/campaign-for-a-zebra-crossing-in-kimberley-1-8918604

So many people try and cross the road either to get to Kettlebrook Lodge, Holy Trinity Church and of course to then cross back and walk up to Hardy Street and experience many difficulties.  Thank you to all who have been in touch thus far, following letters I have delivered.

If you would like to be involved in this in any way please let me know, and if you have not had the chance yet, please do send me your opinion on what you would like to see by way of improvements for pedestrians.

There are already some very interesting ideas coming forward and I will go through all of the replies, with submissions to be made in April to the County Council.

I’ll update you when there is more information and publish a summary of all the responses I have received.

 

 

4) Kettlebrook Lodge

At Broxtowe Borough Council full meeting tonight I am delighted that Mr Ellis Tansley, Kimberley resident and volunteer with 2nd Kimberley Scouts is presenting a petition with 2,250 names demonstrating the clear strength of support for this very popular and well used building, and opposition to any development on its site.

 

I have received a number of separate representations from local residents and community leaders during the last few months and I have made known to Broxtowe my unequivocal support for Kettlebrook.

 

I get asked to sign lots of petitions and don’t sign every one I see but I am convinced that any plans to knock down Kettlebrook are extremely short sighted.

 

I was made aware from a number of people in Kimberley who got in touch last year concerned about the future of Kettlebrook that that the few people who supported its closure were doing it as a way to try and sabotage the route for the tram extension: http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2015/02/tram-extension-line-4-phase-iii-to-kimberley-eastwood-into-amber-valley/ –  by building houses on the site instead.

 

I am pleased therefore that the strength of opposition to Kettlebrook closing is so strong.

5) Homelessness is not just something you read about in the press

 

Earlier this month a local resident got in touch with concerns about the plight of a homeless person sleeping rough near the A610 underpass in Kimberley (near Hayley Close).

 

In terms of statutory services I was able to contact

Gary Smithurst

Homeless Manager Broxtowe Borough Council

Foster Avenue, Beeston

Nottingham

NG9 1AB Tel 0115 9173424

Gary.Smithurst@broxtowe.gov.uk

 

They in turn liaise with the street outreach team at Framework.

 

If you are aware of any other instances locally please get in touch.

 

 

 

 

 

6)   Dog fouling – Swingate, Kimberley

 

I have had some complaints about increasing occurrences of dog fouling in and around Swingate (especially near the water tower).

I have raised this both the Street Cleaning Manager and Broxtowe and the Neighbourhood

Wardens.  If you are affected by this please drop me a line.

 

 

 

7)  Pot holes

 

One of the most frequent complaints I receive concern the amount of pot holes there are, and the very lengthy wait to get anything done.  The latest occurrence is outside Kimberley Primary school on Swingate.

 

If there particular areas locally you would like considering for treatment please let me know and I will compile a comprehensive list to send to the County Council for action.

 

 

 

 

8)   Suggested recommended viewing/watching

 

Some of the most interesting items I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is said, but they do provoke some thought and discussion:

a) A feisty interview with Jordan Peterson as he and Channel 4 presenter Cathy Newman debate such issues as the gender pay gap, equality, campus protests.  It certainly caused a stir on social media:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMcjxSThD54

 

 

b) Carillion – the demise of a company that had grown too big to fail

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – December 2017

Hi all

A warm welcome to December’s update and especially to those who have joined during the last few weeks.

For all of us during 2017 and across this nation there have been monumentally tragic times.  As one of the articles states in my recommended reading below “the spectre of terrorism continues to haunt Europe and the UK.  On five occasions in 2017, Britain endured attacks, most grievously of all on 22 May as 22 people were killed and many more injured by an Islamist suicide bomber as they left an Ariana Grande concert in the Manchester Arena”.

Then shortly after the whole country witnessed a most horrifying fire at Grenfall tower, taking the lives of 71 people.

It is indeed difficult to comprehend just everything that took place within a matter of a few weeks.

Locally in and around Broxtowe, as ever, this year has been been busy with highs and lows, some frustrations, but with hard work continuing behind the scenes in order to try and make improvements on a number of key issues.  Some of these are covered below in this update.

My newsletters for the whole year (and going back month by month to 2007) are shown here: http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/work-in-broxtowe/

I retain a strong sense of optimism, ambition and hope for 2018, and am looking forward to the challenges ahead.

Thank you all for your feedback during this year.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas & peaceful New Year.

 

Best regards

Richard

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – December 2017

1) Giltbrook traffic congestion

I am grateful to all of you living in Kimberley & Giltbrook who have been in touch during the past month about increasing traffic congestion in and around the approach to and from the Giltbrook (IKEA) Retail Park – and especially relating to the IKEA roundabout.
Nottinghamshire County Council – have been contacted about this and engineers visited the junction and found some issues with the existing signals equipment.  The junction was installed 10 years ago and some of the equipment needs to be renewed.
They have duly carried out a temporary fix and will be returning over the next few weeks to do a comprehensive check and replacement of any defective cabling they find.
More information available from:
Chris Gough
Traffic Systems Network Manager (South)
Tel: 0115 9774366 –

Please do contact me again with any specific problems.

 

2) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

Following concerns from local residents I am going to launch a major campaign in January to and improve road crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.  So many people try and cross the road either to get to Kettlebrook Lodge, Holy Trinity Church and of course to then cross back and walk up to Hardy Street and experience many difficulties.  Thank you to all who have been in touch.

If you would like to be involved in this in any way please let me know.

I’ll touch on this more in January – and will make lots of literature available.

3) Moonlight Cinema returns to Giltbrook Retail Park (GRP)

We are not there yet with a permanent cinema at GRP – however I am pleased that following a successful trial a number of months ago
further showings are planned for January 2018.  Showings include Notting Hill, Tangled, Pretty Woman, Moulin Rouge, Moana & The Notebook.  A full list of showings & how to book is shown at the following link:
Previous press coverage about this is shown here:

4)   Broxtowe Women’s Project – job vacancy

A job vacancy currently exists for a Domestic Abuse Outreach worker.  This is a part time post 30 hour per week £24,500 pro rata.

5)  Tram extension to Kimberley & Eastwood & into Amber Valley

Many of you will know that I am a passionate supporter of regeneration, reducing traffic congestion, job creation, public transport and providing a major boost to our local communities.

I am working alongside KENTAG (Kimberley, Eastwood & Nuthall Tram Action Group) to support the tram extension from Phoenix Park.

I am indebted to Cllr Chris Emmas-Williams – Labour Group Leader Amber Valley and MP for Ashfield Gloria De Piero for their work recently on this campaign.

In early 2018 we are taking the campaign up a level and have a meeting planned with key stakeholders covering the whole of the Midlands region.

The tram campaign will be a major focus of activity throughout 2018.

7)   Christians Against Poverty – Ilkeston Debt Centre

I have been asked by Ian Robertson, Centre Manager for Christians Against Poverty in Ilkeston to relay the following information:

Christians against Poverty (CAP) have recently opened a new debt centre in Ilkeston which offers free debt help to those struggling with debt. Their service is not only available to those living in Ilkeston and Heanor but also to anyone in the NG16 sub-postcodes 1-4 (an area stretching from Nuthall to Langley Mill).

A CAP debt centre is not a place but a process.  People telephone CAP on 0800 3280006 requesting help.  The local centre manager with a support worker visits the enquirer in the privacy of their home and collects all the financial information.  On receipt of all details CAP analyse the problems and recommend a way forward.That may be a debt repayment plan and/or an insolvency option.  Budgeting advice is always given and CAP seek to support their clients through the whole process of them becoming debt free.

CAP helps over 20,000 clients a year and handles over £45 million of client debt.It works with hundreds of finance and utility companies and saw over 2500 clients become debt free last year.  Ian Robertson manager of the new centre at Ilkeston says; “Typically debts can build up when a relationship breaks down,someone loses their job,or through bereavement–so often when people are least able to cope with a financial headache.  We hope over the next few years to help countless local people and families,regardless of their age,gender,faith or background to put their debt nightmares behind them and start a new life.”

Some of the most interesting articles I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is written, but they do provoke thought:

 

1) A new poem by Ben Okri, on Brexit and our times
2) Christmas – a time for family and generosity – a place for justice and freedom:
3) 2017 – a year of darkness and light

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – November 2017

Hi all

 

A warm welcome to November’s update and especially to those who have joined during the last few weeks.

As it is officially December tomorrow can I take this opportunity to wish all readers a very Happy Christmas.

As ever there is a plenty to update you about, so straight down to business.  I trust that you find the information below informative.

Feedback as always is welcome.  Likewise if you need help with any personal casework please get in touch.

Best regards

Richard

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – November 2017

1) The Hidden Bakery, 232 Nottingham Road, Eastwood NG16 3GR

The official opening of the Hidden Bakery on Hilltop Eastwood is to take place next Friday 8 December at 12 noon with the Mayor of Broxtowe – Councillor Halimah Khaled MBE.  I do hope as many of you as possible will be able to come along.

Offering fresh handmade bread, artisan teas, cakes, pastries, breakfast, brunch, lunch and Sunday lunches and much more I am absolutely delighted for the owners Heidi and Andrew who experienced a torrid time in Kimberley.  In Eastwood this represents a new start for them and their perseverance has certainly paid off.  The loss for Kimberley is most definitely a gain for Eastwood.

The quality of the goods they produce and service they offer is second to none.

The Hidden Bakery is actually open from tomorrow – 1 December – with next Friday being the ‘official opening’ “with the Mayor”.

More information on The Hidden Bakery available at:

https://www.facebook.com/thehiddenbakeryuk/

or by emailing: heidimather1@gmail.com

 

2) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

Following concerns from local residents I am going to launch a major campaign in January to and improve road crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.  So many people try and cross the road either to get to Kettlebrook Lodge, Holy Trinity Church and of course to then cross back and walk up to Hardy Street and experience many difficulties.  Thank you to all who have been in touch.

If you would like to be involved in this in any way please let me know.

I’ll touch on this more in January – and will make lots of literature available.

3) Refuse collection in Broxtowe

If you reside within the borough of Broxtowe you should have already been sent information about the changes in refuse collection.    New bin calendars have already been sent to every household ahead of the changes, which start on Monday 4 December.

Whilst not all residents will have a new collection day, some could see their collection day change by up to 4 days or see their black or green lidded bin collection week swap.  Anyone affected will receive additional information in the post about how the Council will help them manage their waste during the transition weeks.
Residents are also reminded of the new bin collection start time of 630am, which also starts next Monday.

If anyone has any questions please email: recycling@broxtowe.gov.uk

If there are any problems at all, please let me know.

 

4) £200 the price of a cover up?

 

Many of you will now be familiar with the incredible problems that Stephanie Hather has experienced trying to legitimately trade in Kimberley with her Jacket Potato business.  I have covered this matter comprehensively before – especially in my September edition, and with slighly less detail in October’s newsletter (both referenced below). 

 

In particular I wrote last month that at that time the complaint made by Steph was at the Stage 2 of Broxtowe’s complaint process with a formal investigation taking place.

Both Steph and myself specifically asked to be interviewed as part of this process so we could give verbal evidence and explanations to supplement the written representations already made.

So now the council’s response has come back.  It offers Steph £200 in total for the errors that “the council have acknowledged” (which has taken one year to conclude).

The report that the council has written is very weak:

a) it supplies no answers as to why Steph and myself were not invited to be interviewed.

b) it contains wholly inaccurate information where for example it denies a meeting took place between the Deputy Chief Executive, another member of staff and myself on Wednesday 2 August 2017.  It did take place, I have documents to prove this.

c) the report completely ignores the true reasons why the trial that was agreed with Steph last year was cancelled right at the last minute.

Last Friday 24 November I made a robust further submission to the Chief Executive in addition to comments that Steph has made, asking for further and specific explanations as to inaccuracies and omissions in the council’s report.  To date no response has been received.

In my submission I was careful to state from the outset that council officers do a tremendous job, week in, week out for the residents of the borough and that my criticisms are not of them.  The fault here clearly lies with those councillors who have put extraordinary pressure on members of staff to implement their own parochial wishes.

The real reason the trial was cancelled and Steph has endured so many problems is that Kimberley Conservative Borough Councillors, together with some members of Kimberley Town Council don’t want her to trade.

So the real message is this – Broxtowe is open for business (but only if you are friends with the Tories).

I take my council work extremely seriously and I am determined to ensure that justice prevails in this case, together with the utmost transparency in every instance.

I would be pleased to receive any further comments you have on this.

 

5)  Tram extension to Kimberley & Eastwood & into Amber Valley

I attended an excellent summit on Monday this week at Leicester City Hall, organised by East Midlands Councils – click on the following link: adScan

This meeting was well attended from across the East Midlands Region including MPs council leaders and senior local government officers.

A key objective of the summit was to look at the East Midlands region’s transport projects and see how local business growth can be maximised through their delivery.

The East Midlands is registered as one of the worst geographical regions to live as measured by social mobility and employment opportunities for people in former coalfield/industrial areas.  Poor public transport links is seen as one of route causes.  I am a passionate supporter of public transport and supporting regeneration – with new jobs and opportunities – particularly in and around Broxtowe, Ashfield and Amber Valley.

I met at the summit both Sir John Peace, (Chair of Midlands Engine) and Maria Machancoses (Programme Director at Midlands Connect Project Team) and discussed the opportunities for the Amber Valley, Eastwood, Kimberley Tram extension as part of the Hs2 Growth Strategy.

A follow up meeting is now being planned for January next year with colleagues at Midlands Connect as to how to take the tram extension forward.

I’ll update on progress in due course.

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

 

6)   Labour selects its parliamentary candidate in Broxtowe

Earlier this month the Labour party selected its parliamentary candidate to fight the next General Election (which is set for 2022) – however with politics both at home and abroad being somewhat unpredictable, an election could happen of course at any time before then.
Labour’s candidate is Greg Marshall (who successfully narrowed the Conservative majority from over 4000 to under 1000 in June this year).  If you would like to help Greg campaign please contact Nina Douglas – nina.douglas@gmail.com
7)   Christians Against Poverty – Ilkeston Debt Centre

I have been asked by Ian Robertson, Centre Manager for Christians Against Poverty in Ilkeston to relay the following information:

Christians against Poverty (CAP) have recently opened a new debt centre in Ilkeston which offers free debt help to those struggling with debt. Their service is not only available to those living in Ilkeston and Heanor but also to anyone in the NG16 sub-postcodes 1-4 (an area stretching from Nuthall to Langley Mill).

A CAP debt centre is not a place but a process.  People telephone CAP on 0800 3280006 requesting help.  The local centre manager with a support worker visits the enquirer in the privacy of their home and collects all the financial information.  On receipt of all details CAP analyse the problems and recommend a way forward.That may be a debt repayment plan and/or an insolvency option.  Budgeting advice is always given and CAP seek to support their clients through the whole process of them becoming debt free.

CAP helps over 20,000 clients a year and handles over £45 million of client debt.It works with hundreds of finance and utility companies and saw over 2500 clients become debt free last year.  Ian Robertson manager of the new centre at Ilkeston says; “Typically debts can build up when a relationship breaks down,someone loses their job,or through bereavement–so often when people are least able to cope with a financial headache.  We hope over the next few years to help countless local people and families,regardless of their age,gender,faith or background to put their debt nightmares behind them and start a new life.”

Pet Walk and Stay

Hi my name is Katerina Sykes the proprietor of Pet Walk & Stay home comfortI am devoted to providing the best possible pet service for you and your pet/s.

We often find ourselves in an increasing demanding lifestyle which distracts to carrying out the undivided attention we give our pets.

My home is a special place that’s cool for pets to stay, reducing stress and anxiety from alternative lodgings, giving you the freedom to enjoy your time away while I provide the loving care for your pets.

Choose from a range of care options;

· Regular walks

· Day care

· Overnight stays

· Home visits

As I strive to deliver a relaxed and stress free environment for your pets, it is important for you to feel reassured that your pets are in the best care and that you have the confidence in me, your pet sitter/walker. I hold a pet sitting diploma and a pet first aid certificate. Very importantly I am insured. In addition, I can use my experience of caring for my own pets as I understand how they form an integral part of the family. The feedback from pet owners have been how relaxed their pets are and grateful for the regular walks and company.

Affordable rates, so please contact me to discuss and arrange a pre-visit as prices are tailored around your pet’s needs. I am a friendly professional, reliable and will always try to fit around your commitments.

Mobile number: 07763 949535

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.
